A Slippery Slope.
An American Farce by Patrick Hunter

The Barn Theatre proudly presents A Slippery Slope
Produced & Directed by Brendan Ragotzy

This show is our "final" regular season show of the summer. But there's still lots of fun here at the Barn Theatre with The Rocky Horror Show, Tom Wopat and his band, and our Christmas Cabaret.

Opening Tuesday, September 21 at 8:00 PM - Playing through September 26

The Barn Theatre brings you the hilarious American farce comedy A SLIPPERY SLOPE September 21-26.

Peter (Patrick Hunter) and Melanie (Melissa Cotton Hunter) along with their brother Kenny (Charlie King) and sister Pamela (Penelope Alex) and their spouses take a family vacation together to a Michigan ski lodge. With a positive pregnancy test stick discovered, things get very complicated, very quickly: Trysts are misunderstood, love notes are discovered, a cluelessly helpful proprietor gets involved and an indoor snowball fight ensues. This madcap farce about family and love on the slopes a must see. Steven Lee Burright, Luke Ragotzy, Joe Pehrson, Lexi Pinnata and Melanie Wehrmacher are featured in this sequel to In Hot Water, filmed on our stage last summer.

A SLIPPERY SLOPE is directed by Brendan Ragotzy, set designed by Steven Lee Burright, and costumes designed by Melanie Wehrmacher. Properties designed by Sydney Weiser, Technical Direction by Dennis McKeen. Lights are designed by Michael McShane. Sound has been designed by Troy Benton. Garrylee McCormick is hair/wig master.
