The next time you set foot in the Barn Community Playhouse you may think that you have walked into the wrong theater. Surprise! We have listened to your comments and concerns about the seating and have begun a major remodeling project to improve our seating situation. With the extreme generosity and hard work of many people we are currently removing a major portion of the upper balcony and replacing the existing seating platforms and ramps. All of us have suffered through a show in those uncomfortable folding chairs, stuck behind the post or in the pit with a terrible view of the stage. We knew that our patrons were suffering and we hope that by putting every row of seats on a different level, installing cushioned theater seats donated generously by Lisa Kendall and the Middle Way Health Care and removing the post, every seat in the house will have a great view and be comfortable to you. But, to accommodate these new seats and to improve the views of all seats we needed to make some major layout changes to the theater. This takes money and we are very thankful to have a great supporting cast of donors. To keep this project funded and to fund other projects such as adding handicapped accessible restrooms to the lobby, upgrading our lights and sound equipment and insulating the building, we are selling the naming rights to our new seats. For a one-time $500 tax deductible donation you will get your name, or any name you choose, engraved on a permanent plaque on a seat. You may even do this under a payment plan. This is a great way to leave your legacy on the local theater scene. You can even choose what seat it goes on! Big thanks go to Lisa Kendall, Bob Riggert, John Main and his crew, Steve Morgan, Stephan Aalykke and Richard Coon for their support and advice. And thanks to all of the volunteers and the donations of goods and services from local businesses!
