The Theater Barn, in New Lebanon, opens this Friday (June 22nd), for its 2018 season, which is it’s 35th season! The season kicks off with the comedy “The Nerd” by Larry Shue. Following the show the audience is invited to stay for a complimentary wine and hors d’oeuvres reception with the cast and crew to celebrate the 35th Season.
The 2018 season runs from Friday through the fall with plays, musicals, and the always popular Agatha Christie mystery.
June 22 through July 1- “The Nerd”
The action centers on the hilarious dilemma of a young architect who is visited by a man he’s never met but who saved his life in Vietnam—the visitor turning out to be an incredibly inept, hopelessly stupid “nerd” who outstays his welcome with a vengeance.
July 5 through July 22 – “Agatha Christie’s The Mousetrap”
Murder and mayhem ensue in the world’s longest running play by the foremost mystery writer of her time.
July 25 through August 5 – “Pump Boys and Dinettes”
The ‘Pump Boys’ sell high octane on Highway 57 and the ‘Dinettes’, run the Double Cupp diner next door. With heartbreak and hilarity they fashion an evening of country western songs that received unanimous raves on and off-Broadway.
August 9 through August 19 – “She Loves Me”
Set in a 1930s European perfumery, it is considered by many to be the most charming musical ever written. She Loves Me is a warm romantic comedy with an endearing innocence and a touch of old world elegance.
August 23 through September 2 – “The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee”
Winner of the Tony and the Drama Desk Awards for Best Book, it has charmed audiences across the country with its effortless wit and humor.
September 7 through September 23 – “The Decorator”
Marcia returns to her flat to find it has not been painted. A part time painter is just beginning the work when the wife of the man with whom Marcia is having an affair arrives to tell all to her husband. Marcia hires the painter a part time actor, to impersonate her husband. Hilarity is piled upon hilarity as the painter, who takes his acting very seriously, portrays the absent husband.
