  4. 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~~
  5. The Bridges of Madison County (Oct 16) 17 days. Sep-6th to Oct-16...

     Tue, Oct 16th - Barter Theatre   0
    Music and Lyrics by Jason Robert Brown ~~ Book by Marsha Norman ~~ Based on the novel by Robert James Waller ~~ Based on the best-selling novel, a forbidden love affair between a photographer and a housewife changes them forever. This sweeping romance about the roads we travel, the doors we open and the bridges we dare to cross will leave you breathless. With a soaring score, this powerful musical captures the lyrical expanse of America’s heartland along with the yearning entangled in the eternal question “What if...?”~~ Director's Notes THE BRIDGES OF MADISON COUNTY~~ “There are songs that come free from the blue-eyed grass, from the dust of a thousand country roads. This is one of them.” So begins the book The Bridges of Madison County written by Robert James Waller in 1992. Appropriate, then, that this incredible book, and popular movie, would become a 2014 Tony award winning musical. The lush romantic score written by Jason Robert Brown ( The Last Five Years , Parade , Songs for a New World ) and beautiful script by playwright Marsha Norman (‘ night, Mother, The Secret Garden, The Color Purple ) take us into the lives of Francesca Johnson and Robert Kincaid and their beautiful love story.~~ There have been several times in my life when a play comes along that I “need”. A story that strikes chords and pushes buttons in me that I need to listen to, I need to hear its message. The Bridges of Madison County is one such story. This music, these words, these people touch places in my heart and soul and shake me to my very core. I have been moved by the truth of this tale, and it has made my heart open up to the possibilities of true love and romance, of destiny and forever.~~ At the end of chapter one, Robert James Waller writes: “In an increasingly callous world, we all exist with our own carapace of scabbed-over sensibilities. Where great passion leaves off and mawkishness begins, I’m not sure. But our tendency to scoff at the possibility of the former and to label genuine and profound feelings as maudlin makes it difficult to enter the realm of gentleness required to understand the story of Francesca Johnson and Robert Kincaid. If, however, you approach what follows with a willing suspension of disbelief, as Coleridge put it, I am confident you will experience what I have experienced. In the indifferent spaces of your heart, you may even find, as Francesca Johnson did, room to dance again.”~~ Tricia Matthews~~ Director, The Bridges of Madison County ~~ Cast & Credits Cast: Francesca Johnson: Hannah Ingram ~~ Robert Kincaid: Sean Maximo Campos ~~ Carolyn: Hope Quinn ~~ Richard “Bud” Johnson: Nick Koesters ~~ Michael: Zacchaeus Kimbrell ~~ Marge: Paris Bradstreet ~~ Charlie: Rick McVey ~~ Marian: Kim Morgan Dean ~~ Chiara: Sarah Laughland ~~ Collaborators: Director: Tricia Matthews ~~ Musical Director: Dishon Smith ~~ Set Designer: Derek Smith ~~ Lighting Designer: Camille Davis ~~ Costume Designer: Jane Alois Stein ~~ Sound Designer: Tony Angelini ~~ Stage Manager: Cindi A.

  7. Wooden Snowflakes (Nov 20) 32 days. Nov-20th to Dec-23rd

    By Catherine Bush ~~ Trapped on Christmas Eve because her car slid off the icy Kentucky road, Eve Lawson, a cynic who refuses to believe in Santa Claus, finds herself in the home of Simon Peter Whitaker, a woodcarver and expert on Christmas, who is dressed as Santa. Believer and unbeliever find themselves clashing time and time again as old wounds struggle to be healed by the Love that is Christmas. Join us for an evening of humor, surprises and joy as written by one of Barter’s favorite authors.~~ In Repertory with The Santaland Diaries~~ Director's Notes CHRISTMAS MAGIC~~ This is the time of year when we look for flying reindeer, when we hook up twinkly lights against the darkening nights, when we focus our hearts towards the magical and the miraculous. But what do we mean when we talk about Christmas magic?~~ I was recently watching an interview with Derek DelGaudio, renowned magician, and, in it, he talks about what magic actually is to him. He shows a simple trick in which he puts a ball in his hand, closes it, lets you tap his hand, and then shows you that the ball has disappeared by opening his hand again. The way he sees it, the moment of magic is not the reveal of his empty hand, but rather, the moment just before he’s re-opened his hand—the moment you believe the ball has vanished.~~ I know what he means. I think we can all recognize that lift of our hearts when our belief has flapped its wings. “A thrill of hope” as the Christmas song says. It’s not just that something mysterious has happened outside of us; something has shifted inside us as well. We are a part of the mystery.~~ If magic- and indeed miracle, magic’s deep and truthful cousin- is so rooted in belief, what are we to do in a world as cynical as ours? What is it to believe in the face of real pain, real disappointment, real loss- in the face of day-in-and-day-out real life that feels so undecidedly un-magic?~~ That’s what Simon and Eve have to try to discover in this play. It’s what we all have to find out. We have to figure out how to open ourselves in the real world, in the painful, in the annoying, in the times we wish we could back away from other people who believe differently than we do, in the times when we think all is lost — in that millisecond before the magician’s hand opens, we have to seek to believe in each other and in things bigger than we are. Christmas comes to us at the very darkest moment of the year and whispers to us that something could be worth believing in, and against all our real world training and street smarts, we’ve got to lean into that. We’ve got to.~~ Katy Brown~~ Director, Wooden Snowflakes ~~

    By Catherine Bush with Music by Dax Dupuy~~ Oh, you better watch out, you better not cry, you better not pout, I’m telling you why... ~~ This Christmas season has been a tough one for second grader Pepper McGee. It’s hard to hang onto your Christmas spirit when a new baby sister takes everyone’s attention. Pepper’s only hope for a merry Christmas lies with that jolly old elf himself, Santa Claus, who takes her on a magical adventure that changes how she sees Christmas forever.~~ Download study guide. ~~ Cast & Credits Media Sponsor: CW ~~

    ACCLAIMED SINGER-SONGWRITER PETER MAYER RINGS IN THE CHRISTMAS SEASON~~ Musical artist Peter Mayer launches ‘Stars and Promises: A Junkman's Christmas tour for the 2018 holiday season~~ Guitarist and singer Peter Mayer ( Peter Mayer Group, Jimmy Buffett's Coral Reefer Band ) brings his 19th annual ‘Stars and Promises’ Christmas Tour, A Junkman's Christmas tour, to Barter Theatre on Monday, December 3rd. The seasonal performance features imaginative arrangements of traditional and original carols, composed and led by Mayer and his ensemble of versatile musicians.~~ “The theme for this year’s Stars and Promises tour is ‘A Junkman’s Christmas,’ which comes from a memory of my father at Christmas who made the most of a forgotten present by weaving together widgets and fix-it objects so that I had another item under the tree,” said Peter Mayer, guitarist and singer for the Peter Mayer Group. “The holiday season is celebrated around the world in song, from concert halls to shopping malls, and we are honored to be a part of families’ yearly traditions as we begin our 19th year of holiday performances.”~~ Mayer is joined by a world class ensemble of musicians, featuring Chris Walters on piano (Bela Fleck, Alabama, J.D. Souther), Miles Vandiver on drums (Tom Kennedy, Ray Kennedy, Brian Owens), Mark Holland on native flute (Autumn’s Child, Oregon), Kristin Weber on violin and fiddle (Lorde, Kacey Musgraves, Lee Ann Womack), Brendan Mayer (guitarist, singer-songwriter, Mailboat recording artist) and Zeb Briskovich (Clark Terry, Grady Tate, the St. Louis Symphony Orchestra) on bass. The night will feature a collection of timeless carols, original songs and stories, which celebrate the magical Christmas season when families come together from near and far to share gifts of peace, joy, faith and love. The world-class musical performance is accompanied by a beautiful stage production, lighting and pristine sound. The Stars and Promises tradition is a celebration of story and song that rings in the Christmas spirit.~~ The Peter Mayer Group has helped to raise thousands of dollars for communities throughout the United States that make a significant impact to local charities. In addition a portion of the product sales are given back to the charity or cause of choice.~~ Peter Mayer has released 18 albums to date and tours year round with the Peter Mayer Group. He is the lead guitarist in Jimmy Buffett’s Coral Reefer Band and has shared the stage with a variety of artists such as James Taylor, Don Henley, Joe Walsh and Ringo Starr.~~ Cast & Credits Featured Musicians:~~ Chris Walters (Bela Fleck, Alabama, J.D.
