Opening Weekend

Opening weekend was a blast!

We were very happy to see many of you out at the barn this past weekend!  If you didn't have a chance to make it out yet, there are six more performances of Psyche scheduled (July 26, 27, 28 and August 2, 3, 4).  Please come on out the barn, and spread the word to your friends!

Also, don't forget about the rest of our season - our second mainstage production, Or, by Liz Duffy Adams (August 10, 11, 12, 16, & 17), our workshop production of Dammed, by Briandaniel Oglesby (August 9 & 18), and our Night of New Plays workshop (July 29).  Full details can be found at http://www.barnyardtheatre.org/

Finally, once again, thank you all for your generous support.  Our 2012 season, our most ambitious to date, would not have been possible without it.

Almost There!

Despite the inevitable glitches, things are coming together!  The set is nearly complete, the technical systems are up and running (lighting, sound, and projection), full dress rehearsals are starting...and while there is still a lot to do, we can see the lights of an excellent play at the end of the tunnel...

We're only 10 days away!

Where did the time go?  We're only 10 days away from opening night!  We have the bones of a two story stage set built, with set dressing beginning.  We've installed a full-blown theatrical lighting system in the barn.  Actors have been rehearsing, tech crew has been busy putting together all the little bits-and-pieces, our publicity folks have been spreading the word and selling tickets...things are going great!

We look forward to seeing you at the show!

Questions, we have questions!

Hi Everyone!

We've sent out surveys for all reward levels.  Many of you have already completed your surveys, which is much appreciated.  If you haven't yet completed your survey, please do so - we can't get you your well-deserved rewards without the information!  If you didn't get the survey notification, please check your trash or spam folder, in case it was inadvertently mis-routed.

In other news, work continues apace to make exciting theatre in the barn!  Rehearsals are in full swing, set construction is ongoing, and we're nailing down the other 1,001 details from arranging props to scheduling ushers.  You can find rehearsal photos and other updates on our facebook page at

Once again, thank you for your support!

Thank You!

Thank you everybody for getting us to $6000!

We'll be putting together the reward surveys and such in the next couple days, so we can work on getting your well deserved rewards sent to you, or arranged if you are coming to one of the show.

Thank you again!
