OPENING JULY 3 at 8:00 P.M.
(Augusta, MI) Fearless, shameless, exciting…The Barn Theatre School for Advanced Theatre Training presents the sexy and compelling musical BONNIE & CLYDE playing July 3 through July 15!
The musical centers on Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow (played by Barn favorites Melissa Cotton Hunter and Jonnie Carpathios respectively), the ill-fated lovers and outlaws whose story has been infamous since they achieved folk hero status during the Great Depression. Their bold and reckless behavior turns the young lovers’ thrilling adventure into a downward spiral, putting themselves and their loved ones in serious trouble with the law. Forced to stay on the run, the lovers resort to robbery and murder to survive. As the infamous duo’s fame grows bigger, their inevitable end draws nearer. Rounding out the cast are Barn favorites: Samantha Rickard as Blanche Barrow, Patrick Hunter as the Preacher, Andrea Arvanigian as Cumie Barrow, Charlie King as Sheriff, Steven Lee Burright as Henry Barrow, and John Jay Espino as the Judge. This thrilling and sexy musical entertains with a lush score, combining blues, gospel and rockabilly music. View the cast list and bios.
Debuting on Broadway in December 2011, BONNIE & CLYDE was nominated for 3 Outer Critics Circle Awards and 5 Drama Desk Awards, both including Best New Musical, as well as two Tony nominations.
