THE BARN PLAYERS
Quality community theatre in the Kansas City area since 1955

May 9, 2020

The board of The Barn Players has made the difficult decision to cancel our Barn Kids summer program for 2020.

The health and safety of our families, staff and performers must be our top priority and given the concerns about the spread of COVID-19 and the recommendations at the federal, state and local level concerning social distancing and attendance at events, this decision is necessary to honor that priority.

We will send out further information about other upcoming events via our website and Facebook page.

During this difficult and unprecedented time we encourage you all to stay healthy, be kind to people, and support all the local arts organizations and artists who are struggling.

Barn Benefit For All!

Welcome to The Barn's virtual benefit (at the link above)! We’re so thrilled to bring our theatre community into your homes from a safe distance. Please take a moment to contribute a pay-what-you-can "ticket price” as you would for a live show by clicking the “DONATE” button at the bottom of the following link: http://www.thebarnplayers.org/support

Money raised will be split between The Barn Players Community Theatre, The Arts Asylum, each of the performers- who prepared their own material at home to entertain you - and Cori Anne Weber from Crush Media - who created the master video and custom animations. Don’t forget to let your favorite performers know how much you appreciated their performances! We all need a little love today.

Stay safe <3

The Barn Players have made the difficult decision to postpone our upcoming production of “The Laramie Project” which was set to open at the Arts Asylum on May 14th, and the special event “Precious Heart” scheduled for May 18th.

Auditions for the musical “Priscilla, Queen of the Desert”, schedule for April 25th and 26th have also been postponed.

The health and safety of our patrons, staff and performers must be our top priority and given the concerns about the spread of COVID-19 and the recommendations at the federal, state and local level concerning social distancing and attendance at events, as well as the emergency measures that have been enacted in the Kansas City metropolitan area, this decision is necessary to honor that priority.

We will send out further information about other upcoming events via our website and Facebook.

During this difficult and unprecedented time we encourage you all to stay healthy, be kind to people, and support all the local arts organizations and artists who are struggling.

The Barn Players have made the difficult decision to cancel our upcoming production of “If/Then” which was set to open at the Arts Asylum on March 26th. This is heartbreaking for us and of course for the staff, cast, musicians and crew who were hard at work to bring this show to life.

The health and safety of our patrons, staff and performers must be our top priority and given the concerns about the spread of COVID-19 and the recommendations at the federal, state and local level concerning social distancing and attendance at events this decision is necessary to honor that priority.

We will send out further information about other upcoming events via our website and Facebook. For those who have already purchased tickets, refunds or a transfer to a different show will be made available.

During this difficult and unprecedented time we encourage you all to stay healthy, be kind to people, and support all the local arts organizations and artists who are struggling.
