2021 SEASON

The Barn Players have made the difficult decision to reschedule our upcoming productions of SHREK and THE SECRET GARDEN to our 2022 season.

While vaccines, masks and social distancing have improved things, the health and safety of our patrons, staff and performers must remain our top priority. We, therefore, have decided that rescheduling both shows is the right decision.

We are excited to announce that we will be working on rehearsing and recording our upcoming production of THE LARAMIE PROJECT for streaming in May. Stay informed on upcoming productions in 2021 and 2022 by visiting our Facebook page or our website at www.thebarnplayers.org.

We continue to encourage you all to stay healthy, be kind to each other, and support all the local arts organizations and artists who are struggling. Thank you for all of your support of The Barn Players, and we’ll be back on stage and enjoying live theatre again soon.
