The Augusta Barn Theatre is Back Live This Summer
It's happening! More and more things we loved about West Michigan are returning and opening up after being slammed in the face with a COVID pie!
And, one of our most favorite theatre experiences was always live theatre at the Barn Theatre School in Augusta. They are back!
There is nothing better than live theatre, and the 75th Anniversary Season brings back many fan favorites including Mamma Mia!, Jesus Christ Superstar, and Rocky Horror Show, along with Dolly Parton’s 9 to 5 The Musical, and Spongebob Squarepants The Broadway Musical along with special showings of films recorded last summer in “the Barn” and performances of Double “0” 69 written by the Barn Theatre’s own Brendan Ragotzy and A Slippery Slope by Patrick Hunter.
A special 75th Diamond Jubilee Gala Weekend Celebration takes place June 25, 26, 27 with live performances, food, music, and appearances by Famous Barnies alumns like Tom Wopat of the Dukes of Hazzard TV show fame. He's waiting until November 4, 5, 6 and 7, and bringing his band to the mainstage.
