The hysterical and deeply moving classic of Southern friendship and family. Truvy’s Beauty Salon is a haven to the women of Chinquapin, Louisiana, who fill their days sharing local gossip and trading outrageous insults. But when the quiet hum of small-town life is disturbed by personal tragedy, they must look to the deep love they bear for each other to see them through, as well as to their own steely strength.

A Musical by Rupert Holmes

Original Broadway production produced by NY Shakespeare Festival, Joseph Papp, Producer


Finish the mystery that Dickens never did! Winner of five Tony Awards, this ingenious play-within-a-play takes audiences on a rollicking musical adventure with a rowdy troupe of Victorian actors mounting a production of Charles Dickens’ unfinished final novel. Everyone is a suspect, but the finale is up to you; come again and again and vote for a different ending at every performance! Another first for the Barn.

Forever Plaid
August 26 – September 6

Written and original directed and choreographed by Stuart Ross

Musical continuity supervision and arrangements by James Raitt
Originally produced by Gene Wolsk


A deliciously goofy homage to the pitch-perfect harmonies of the 1950’s. The talented and exuberant boys of The Plaids never made it to their first big gig, but now they’re back for their posthumous chance finally to perform the show that never was. This tremendously popular and utterly charming musical revue is packed with oldie hits such as “Heart and Soul”, “Shangri-La”, “Chain Gang”, and “Love is a Many Splendored Thing”.
