  6. The Lemonade Stand (May 24) 8 days. May-13th to May-24th

     Thu, May 24th - Barter Theatre  Arts & Culture, Family & Education 0
    A comedy by Matthew Fowler ~~ Garret Miller is having a midlife crisis. When he gets fired from the only job he’s ever had, he decides to set up a lemonade stand on the street in front of his upscale suburban house. All the while, his wife is probably cheating on him, his brother is a pariah, and the college girl next door wants to be his lemonade-stand intern. In this dramatic comedy, Garret sets out to prove “the American Dream,” “an American Dream,” or at least his American Dream still exists.~~ Director's Notes A great friend of mine (who happens to be a Baby Boomer) once told me her theory of how the elimination of front porches and common shared-streets in neighborhoods was a major factor in the downfall of society. She argued that, because we don’t know our neighbors, because we don’t share home-cooked meals around the table together, because we don’t show up at each others’ houses unannounced to talk about our days and the crazy person down the street anymore, we are no longer really connected.~~ It seems, however, that we are more connected now than ever, right? The internet has given us the ability to instantly talk to each other no matter where we are. Facebook lets us meet newborns when they’re seconds old. I can tell you which of my friends is a good cook based on their Instagram. We can look up/ stalk the mean girl from high school and laugh at how much better we look than she does. We have immediate, pervasive access to millions of people with a simple click, and can talk to them at anytime (assuming there’s cell phone service).~~ But are we actually more connected to each other, or do we just feel like we are? Are we communicating, talking and listening, or are we just screaming around each other into the void?~~ I’m a Millennial and, if you can’t tell, I agree with my friend’s point about porches. What if we were to finally get so fed up with surface conversations and break out of the silo lives we’ve been living in search for something real?~~ This is where we find Garret and Rachel. Two people with a vast generational gap between them: one a Boomer, the other a Millennial. But both find themselves in the midst of an existential crisis. One has aged out of his usefulness, and the other doesn’t yet know what her usefulness is. He has given up everything in an attempt to go back to his glory days. She hasn’t ever gotten close with someone IRL (in real life), and is longing for human interaction.~~ What happens when the two of them meet and actually start talking and listening to each other?~~ What happens if we start taking and listening to each other?~~ Cast & Credits Cast: Garret — Nicholas Piper ~~ Rachel — Sarah Van Deusen ~~ Terry — David Alford ~~ Morgan — Carrie Smith Lewis ~~ Kid — Owen Griffith / Lucas Shane ~~ Collaborators: Director: Barrett Guyton ~~ Set Designer: Hana Lee ~~ Costume Designer: Lee Martin ~~ Lighting Designer: Camille Davis ~~ Sound Designer: Tony Angelini ~~ Wig Designer: Whitney Kaibel ~~ Stage Manager: Cindi A,Raebel ~~ Corporate Sponsor: Reynolds American ~~ Media Sponsor: WEMT ~~ Photos Videos

     Thu, May 24th - Barter Theatre  Arts & Culture, Food & Drinks, Family & Education, Church & Ministry 0
    Music by Alan Menken Lyrics by Glenn Slater ~~ Book by Cheri Steinkellner and Bill Steinkellner ~~ Additional Book Material by Douglas Carter Beane ~~ A heavenly surprise, filled with powerful gospel music, outrageous dancing and a truly moving story, this feel-good comedy smash will have you jumping to your feet with excitement and joy! A woman hiding in a convent helps her fellow sisters find their voices as she rediscovers her own. Make a joyful noise and join us for this musical comedy smash based on the hit film starring Whoopi Goldberg. “’Take Me to Heaven’ and ‘Spread the Love Around’ bloom into full-throttle disco epics, the latter building up to an ecstatic finale.” –NY Post~~ Director's Notes “MAKE A JOYFUL NOISE”~~ It was a time of great change in the world, the years of my youth. The nuns in my life embraced that change and led the way in getting others to embrace change.~~ I grew up with nuns. In grade school starting in third grade, when the catholic school was built as part of our church, and throughout my high school years at the seminary, my education was filled with nuns. Even in college, I had the honor of being involved in social work and work with poor families and homes for the aging in which nuns were involved.~~ I had and still have great love for these nuns, who in many ways helped shape my life. Unlike some unfortunate experiences that I have heard from others who had nuns as teachers in school, the nuns that I grew up with were patient, kind, encouraging, excellent teachers, nurturing, open to the world and everything the world would bring to them, unwavering in their religious beliefs, and were filled with the joy of life. They were the epitome of Christianity in every way. And they were also lots of fun!~~ The nuns in SISTER ACT, are very much like the nuns with whom I grew up. They are full of joy; devout in their commitment to their religion, and willing, when asked, to accept anyone into their family without judgment or question. They do not look to convert; they look to help. Even Mother Superior, who seems resistant to the request to shelter Deloris, does not do so out of judgement or out of rigidity, but more out of protection for her family of nuns for whom she serves as the matriarch and protector.~~ In the end, the story of SISTER ACT is one where diverse parties grow and are transformed by each other. Deloris finds herself to be a new and better person. The nuns break out of their cloistered selves to renew their commitment to the betterment of the world around them. Mother Superior remembers the reason she took her vows and learns to trust her family and herself.~~ In the end, I would say that they find their real calling, which had been lost or buried in the struggle of everyday survival. They are better because they touched each other’s lives. The world is better because they unleash themselves. May we have such moments in our own lives. May we allow ourselves to give such moments to the lives of those around us.~~ For that is our job on this earth: To discover our voices and to help others discover their voices, so that we call all fill the world with song. Make a joyful noise!~~ Richard Rose, director of SISTER ACT.~~ Cast & Credits Cast: Mother Superior: Tricia Matthews ~~ Announcer: Rick McVey ~~ Deloris Van Cartier: Raven Flowers ~~ Michelle: Sarah Laughland ~~ Tina: Hannah Ingram ~~ Curtis Jackson: Nick Koesters ~~ Ernie: Andrew Hampton Livingston ~~ Joey: Rick McVey ~~ Pablo: Sean Maximo Campos ~~ TJ: Tyler Chandler ~~ Cop: A ndrew Hampton Livingston ~~ Eddie Souther: Justin Tyler Lewis ~~ Hookers: Michaela Nicole, Paris Bradstreet ~~ Sister Mary Patrick : Kim Morgan Dean ~~ Sister Mary Robert: Hope Quinn ~~ Sister Mary Lazarus: Paris Bradstreet ~~ Sister Mary Martin-Of-Tours: Michele Burdette Elmore ~~ Sister Mary Theresa: Mary Lucy Bivins ~~ Sister Mary Celeste: Rusty Allen ~~ Sister Mary Irene: Sarah Laughland ~~ Sister Mary Vincent: Hannah Ingram ~~ Sister Mary Thais: Zacchaeus Kimbrell ~~ Sister Mary Bernadette: Joylene Taylor ~~ Sister Mary Priscilla: Katherine Lyle ~~ Sister Mary Therese: Zoe Velling ~~ Monsignor O’Hara: Michael Poisson ~~ Bar Biker Patrons: Zacchaeus Kimbrell, Rusty Allen, Katherine Lyle, Zoe Velling ~~ Girl in Bar: Michaela Nicole ~~ Bartender: Michael Poisson ~~ Homeless: Sean Maximo Campos, Tyler Chandler, Sarah Laughland, Michaela Nicole ~~ Cab Driver: Andrew Hampton Livingston ~~ Newscaster: Michaela Nicole ~~ Fantasy Dancers: Sean Maximo Campos, Tyler Chandler, Nick Koesters, Sarah Laughland, Andrew Hampton Livingston, Michaela Nicole ~~ Collaborators: Director: Richard Rose ~~ Choreographer: Ashley Campos ~~ Additional Musical Staging: Amanda Aldridge & Ashley Campos ~~ Music Director: Lee Harris ~~ Set Design: Derek Smith ~~ Costume Design: Amanda Aldridge ~~ Lighting Design: Andrew Morehouse ~~ Sound Design: Tony Angelini ~~ Stage Manager: Sara Douglas ~~ Assistant Stage Manager: Victoria L.
