The Carol Burnett Show (Rated G) will officially start the 2022 season for one weekend only, January 6th through 9th. This beloved television show first aired on CBS in 1967 and kept people at home laughing for over a decade. Come laugh with Barn Lot Theater as they perform hilarious selections from Carol Burnett’s scripts live!
Monster in the Closet (Rated G) is Little Lot Theater’s children’s show, also one weekend only, January 28th through 30th. Emily has a monster in her closet named Murray, but he doesn’t mean any harm; he only wants to play Emily’s new video game. He’s too scared of kids to even think about trying to frighten them! With wonderfully entertaining characters, Monster in the Closet brings humor, a bit of ingenuity, and a little magic to this charming and delightful family show.
February 24th through March 6th, The Odd Couple (Female Version) (Rated PG) will return to Barn Lot Theater’s stage. Neil Simon’s revision of his hugely successful play, The Odd Couple, sees the lead characters transformed into Olive Madison and Florence Unger. Where Olive is messy, untidy, and unconcerned about the state of her apartment, Florence is obsessively clean, tidy, and obsessed with hygiene. Olive’s easy-going outlook on life clashes with Florence’s highly-strung neurotic tendencies, testing their friendship to the limit with hilarious results.
In Farce of Habit (Rated PG), we’re back at the Reel ‘Em Inn with the Wilburn family in this hilarious sequel to Farce of Nature. The proprietor, D. Gene Wilburn is hoping for a peaceful weekend of fishing, but with the storm of the century, a wacky guest list filled with suspicious characters, and an axe murderer on the loose, Poor D. Gene may never get to go fishing again! If you enjoy gloriously preposterous hilarity, then laughing your way through the take-no-prisoners lunacy of this Jones Hope Wooten comedy is one habit you’ll never want to break!
May 13th through 15th, for one weekend only, Barn Lot Theater will present Sounds of the Screen (Rated G). This cabaret-style concert will showcase songs that have been featured in both film and television. Join us for an evening of familiar music from some of your favorite films and TV shows.
Duck Hunter Shoots Angel (Rated PG-13), June 16th through 26th, is the uproarious story of two bumbling Alabama brothers who think they’ve accidentally shot an angel while duck hunting. The play hysterically interweaves a love story, sibling rivalry, tawdry media, race relations and cultural stereotypes as the chase to find the angel builds to a crescendo in the swamp. Ultimately a sweet allegory about redemption, Duck Hunter Shoots Angel has been hailed by audiences as a rare comedy with a surprisingly heartfelt lesson.
One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest (Rated R) will be August 18th through 28th. In this stage adaptation of the famous film, we see the charming rogue, Randle P. McMurphy, as he contrives to serve a short sentence in an airy mental institution rather than go to prison. This, he learns, was a mistake. After blatantly disobeying the rules in order to lift the spirits of his fellow inmates, he clashes with the head nurse, a fierce martinet, Nurse Rached, who punishes him for his misdeeds harshly with shock treatment and far worse in the shocking conclusion of this show.
Young Frankenstein (Rated PG-13) It's alive! Onstage October 20th through 30th, this electrifying stage adaptation of Mel Brooks' monstrously funny film, Young Frankenstein will leave you in stitches. hilarity continuously abounds. Young Frankenstein has all the panache of the screen sensation with a little extra theatrical flair added. Hilarity continuously abounds in this scientifically proven, monstrously funny musical.
