2018 Producer’s Letter


We are absolutely thrilled to bring you our 72nd season, with an incredible lineup of shows full of entertainment and a little something for everyone! We celebrate with pride, the rich tradition of the theater begun by my folks in 1946, and we joyously continue to bring you the highest caliber entertainment from one of the finest Equity theatres in the nation, your very own Barn Theatre!

Our brand new performers, as well as our stars and ever- amazing returning group promise to entertain you all summer long. See them on stage, as well as in up close in person at the Shed after the show. We look forward to spending our evenings with you. As you may know,

Barnies are represented in all walks of entertainment, including winners of Academy Awards, Tonys, Emmys and

Grammys. We couldn’t be more proud to provide an experience the whole family will enjoy while seeing the stars of tomorrow today!

Along with the sensational lineup of shows this season, we continue to strongly believe in our major outreach program, the Backstage Xperience. This program introduces local students to the transformative power of live theatre, giving them an opportunity to learn and interact with our staff. Who knows, you may see them on stage soon, too!

We’re also thrilled to share exciting improvements once again this season! We’ve added legroom to the entire center section of auditorium, nightly dinners on the Barn grounds from our delicious vendors rotating with Schuler’s of Marshall, Millennium Restaurant Group, GMC Catering and Kitchen House of Richland, as well as our new online ticketing system. To keep these improvements coming, and to ensure we provide the best possible experience for you and your loved ones, we ask you to consider supporting the legacy of the Barn Theatre through a donation. And we thank you for your support as a patron!

We are all so happy you’re here making memories with us, and we hope you thoroughly enjoy your time with the Barnies!
