Ben Hur (A Comedy), September 14-19

A Comedy by Patrick Barlow
Produced & Directed by Brendan Ragotzy

Based on one of the timeless stories of one of the best-selling books of the nineteenth century, this stage adaptation of the epic tale is hilariously told by a handful of actors.  The story follows an amateur theatre troupe comprised of Barn favorites Patrick Hunter, Charlie King, Melissa Cotton Hunter, and Aaron Czarnecki as they produce the massive tale of the fictional Jewish prince and merchant Judah Ben-Hur. He falls to a galley slave and rises to champion charioteer within Jerusalem during the life of Jesus Christ, while the actors struggle along through the piece as rivalries form and offstage romances interfere.
