    “The Greatest Movie Musical of All Time” Book by Betty Comden and Adolph Green Songs by Arthur Freed and Nacio Herb Brown Based on the classic Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer film by special arrangement with Warner Bros Theatre Ventures “Make ‘Em Laugh,” “You Are My Lucky Star,” “You Were Meant for Me,” “All I do is Dream of You,” and, of course the title song, “Singin’ in the Rain,” are but a few of the wonderful songs from one of the most celebrated and beloved musical films ever made. Live and onstage, these unforgettable scenes, songs and dances will make you laugh, make you sing, wow you with the spectacle of it all, and leave you with a night to remember for the rest of your life. Director's Notes RAIN BRINGS LIFE Rain is refreshing. Rain is life giving. Rain cleanses. And in the case of Singin’ in the Rain , it is also wildly entertaining. Whenever it rains, everyone complains. Yet rain is necessary to our sustenance. Rain makes everything around us alive. The fact that rain brings life was not lost on Betty Comden and Adolph Green when they wrote Singin’ in the Rain . We take great joy in watching a young child play in a mud puddle or splash around in a sprinkler because we see the renewal, joy and refreshing image of being clean again. We experience immense pleasure in watching birds splash in a fountain. So what better image could there possible be for a man falling in love than singing and dancing in the rain? It’s the perfect image of freedom; there’s not a care in the world, even a downpour couldn’t dampen happiness. Don Lockwood singing and dancing in the rain reminds us of our childhood. He is free from the restraint of fame and publicity. But more than that, the rain, and his love of Kathy Seldon, cleanses him. And in the process, he helps to cleanse the world around him by doing what is right and fair. In the meantime, we get to be highly entertained by a boy and his friends splashing, playing, dancing and singing in the rain. If we could only experience that joy every day of our lives!

  2. Sally McCoy (Oct 04) 24 days. Oct-4th to Nov-10th

     Thu, Oct 4th - Barter Theatre  Arts & Culture, Family & Education 0
    “Winner of Barter’s 2018 Appalachian Festival of Plays and Playwrights.” By Alice Stanley In the midst of the first gruesomely violent event of the legendary Hatfield and McCoy feud, one woman does what she must to save her family. Sally McCoy tells a harrowing and deeply personal story which takes a hard look at how women’s stories and perspectives are too often excluded from our historical narratives. Set in August 1882, Sally’s three eldest sons are captured by the Hatfield clan. Sally defies her womanly place in the home and crosses miles of Appalachian wilderness in the dark of night to save her children from certain death at the vengeful hands of the Hatfields. After traveling all those miles alone, she arrives at the home of the Hatfield patriarch, “Devil” Anse Hatfield, and refuses to let anything stand in her way until she has seen the “Devil” face to face. Director's Notes We all know something or other about the epic feud between the Hatfields and McCoys. It is the stuff of American legend- a tribal tale of bloody vengeance that endured for the last 30 years of the 19th century. Maybe this particular feud sticks in the American psyche because it has all the elements of Shakespearean tragedy: family honor, betrayal, bloodlust, star-crossed lovers, and of course, a stolen pig. It was not nearly the bloodiest feud taking place in our young country at the time, but it would capture the imagination of historians and laymen alike, earning the Tug Fork River region the nickname “Murderland”. Ultimately, these two families believed in their own clan, no matter what, kinfolk above all else. And we need only watch five minutes of the evening news to see that this same mentality burns brightly, even today. Our play is set smack dab in the middle of these violent times, as Sally is surrounded by quick tempered men armed with guns, knives, and their blind hatred of “others” that colored every moment of her life. It does not dwell on big sweeping thoughts of social order, nor the decades of infighting that lead up to this dark night. Rather, it concerns itself with strength and fortitude, the incomparable bond, and resolute convictions of a mother’s love. At a time when wives and daughters were the slaves of the poorest families, who could expect such a woman to be brave? And who would allow her to speak her mind? Family was on Sally McCoy’s mind one night in 1882, as she made her way through the dark and treacherous woods to the old Hatfield home. Family. Her boys. Her everything. It would take epic courage to make this journey, to tiptoe across that threshold, to open her mouth, use her voice, and show her hand. Our Sally is a heroine ahead of her time, speaking truth to power; the consequences be damned.

With Santa’s permission, Buddy embarks on a journey to New York City to find his birth father, and discover his true identity. Faced with the harsh realities that his father is on the naughty list and his half-brother doesn’t even believe in Santa, Buddy is determined to win over his new family and help remember the true meaning of Christmas.

  8. The Santaland Diaries (Nov 28) 28 days. Nov-28th to Dec-30th

     Wed, Nov 28th - Barter Theatre  Arts & Culture 0
    By David Sedaris Recommended for mature audience due to language and subject matter This outrageous holiday comedy stars Crumpet, a rebel without a Claus, who recounts his true-life tale of being an out-of-work writer doing a stint as a Macy’s department store elf. His encounters, as an Elf during the season of forced joy, have become a delightful cult classic for those in need of a holly-jolly antidote! A delightfully absurd look at the commercial Christmas season, Sedaris’ sharp and hilarious observations have rapidly become one of the nation’s most popular holiday shows. Barter’s production will feature one of Barter’s favorite actors, Nick Piper, as Crumpet. In Repertory with Wooden Snowflakes
