NOTE: This website is in development. I am populating it with 60+ performances I have photographed over recent years. I will complete that work by early December 2019 and formally announce it at that time. In the meantime, enjoy my daily postings of these magical theatre events. And yes, I know there are many images in some of these postings. That is purposeful because many of the cast and crew copy and use these images for their own portfolios and resumes.

The Barn Stage, a 240-seat venue, is in its 81st season and is cited as the oldest summer stock barn theatre still operating in America. The original barn was built in 1875 and much of that structure remains in place today.

The following images were captured live during the final dress rehearsal. They are not posed. Some are similar to each other. That is purposeful - an individual performer may look better in one than the other.  These images are often used by the performers to share with family and friends and other champions of their artistic endeavors. (Click on an image for a higher resolution version if your device supports that action). The images are presented in order of occurrence in the show.

Support local live theatre wherever in the world you may live!  Check back in a few days for Parts 2 and 3 of this blog series.
