There's Nick Gialias, operator of the Logan Inn and a borough councilman; Bruce Katsiff, retired director of the James A. Michener Art Museum; Tom Wilschutz, head of the Solebury School; and Jerry Lepping, executive director of Bucks County's tourism agency.
"It's a way to reintroduce the playhouse to the community," producing director Jed Bernstein said. "We hope they'll bring their friends and family - it helps sell tickets."
All of the "actors" have supported the landmark playhouse, which was rescued from foreclosure and reopened July 2 after standing dark for 18 months.
Some have entertainment experience, such as Eleanor "Mouse" Miller, an actor and director of Phillips' Mill Theater Cabarets; Bob Egan, a lounge singer; and Tim Throckmorton, a member of the county Gilbert and Sullivan Society.
Others, not so much.
There's Hugh Marshall, who grooms the grounds and donated plaques of long-ago seasons that he pulled out of the trash, and Jim Gorecki, the real estate agent who handled the $1.7 million purchase of the playhouse on the Delaware River.
Three spots will be filled by a drawing Tuesday from more than 150 entrants. The playhouse staff is not accepting additional entries.
Each of the performers will have one line, delivered off stage, Bernstein said.
"I can imagine one ad-lib line," he added. "Like Marcel Marceau, it's all about the acting."
Adding the 32 community members to the show's five professional actors "will make it the largest cast ever assembled for Barefoot in the Park," Bernstein said, "and the largest cast party."
