    The Fats Waller Musical Show Music by Thomas “Fats” Waller Conceived by Richard Maltby, Jr. and Murray Horwitz The joint is jumpin’ with the new Swing beat to the music of the inimitable Thomas “Fats” Waller, who rose to international fame during the Golden Age of the Cotton Club. Ain’t Misbehavin’ evokes the delightful humor and infectious energy of this American original as a versatile cast struts, strums and sings the songs of “Fats” Waller made famous in a career that ranged from uptown clubs to downtown Tin Pan Alley to Hollywood, and concert stages in the U.S., Canada and Europe. The intoxicating music of Fats Waller will delight and energize audiences as well as provide great insight into a vibrant time in American history and music. Director's Notes Prior to having the opportunity to direct here at Barter Theatre, I hadn't heard the music from Ain't Misbehavin’ since the late 1980s and had completely forgotten how much I loved it. Certainly my Charleston, South Carolina family is glad the show is finally up on its feet and that for the last three weeks they haven't had to hear me breaking into song. This is definitely the kind of music that will have you humming or singing days from now. Admittedly, listening with my ears from the "hashtag days of today" was a different experience from hearing it the first time, it will still always be one of my favorite musical revues of all time. This music and this musical does a body good! Thomas "Fats" Waller was a prolific songwriter and an internationally known performer who died entirely too young. At age 39, Fats succumbed to pneumonia after cancelling a tour to return home to New York City to heal. He didn't make it all the way home; he died outside of Kansas City, Missouri, but he left us with an entire body of work that will keep him alive forever. He wrote and/ or recorded more than 500 songs in his short lifetime, some of which you will hear in the show. So, Fats Waller and his cronies made quite an impact musically in the 20s, 30s, and 40s. The music was fun, catchy, and kept folks moving. I'm trusting that this performance will do the same for you. So sit back, and let this band and these performers take you back in time! I'd like to add a special thanks to the entire Barter family and my incredibly talented and generous creative team. Thanks for the love, Y'all. Take care of JP and my babies...

  2. Dough and Cookies (Aug 21) 8 days. Aug-21st to Aug-26th

     Tue, Aug 21st - Barter Theatre  Arts & Culture, Family & Education 0
    Darlene and Charlene, twin sisters from South Carolina, steal $20.5 million from the Department of Defense through a loophole. What begins as an accident turns into a 7-year fraud that these middle-aged Baptist women justify. Funny and touching, Dough & Cookies is a surprising look at greed, grief and the extraordinary journeys of a wounded heart. Director's Notes It’s amazing how we, as humans, have the ability to justify actions that we know are wrong. We’ve all done it in some way or another. We’ve watched celebrities do it, politicians, wives, husbands, children. We convince ourselves that we do something for “the greater good.” Or perhaps because, “I deserve this.” In Dough and Cookies we see a prime example of self-justification that comes from a very specific need — the need to compensate for a loss. Grief is powerful. It makes us do all sorts of crazy things, behave in ways we don’t recognize. It takes us on a wild ride through the full spectrum of emotions—from laughter to tears and everywhere in between. Much like tonight’s play does. Darlene and Charlene don’t start out with the idea of stealing $21 million from the Department of Defense. Through a chance clerical error, they find themselves in the middle of it. And then they find all sorts of reasons why it’s okay for them to be doing something they clearly know is wrong. And while it’s easy to judge people who have done something wrong from a distance, I hope that their story will serve as a reminder that we don’t always know the full story. We don’t know another person’s burden and how they’re trying to bear it. And if it can happen to someone like Darlene—devoted wife, mother, and Sunday school teacher, it can happen to any of us.

  3. The Bridges of Madison County (Sep 06) 35 days. Sep-6th to Nov-11...

     Thu, Sep 6th - Barter Theatre  Arts & Culture, Music 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 Stein Sound Designer: Tony Angelini Stage Manager: Cindi A.

  4. Great Expectations (Sep 14) 30 days. Sep-14th to Nov-9th

     Fri, Sep 14th - Barter Theatre  Arts & Culture 0
    Adapted by Catherine Bush From the original book by Charles Dickens In a humorous and moving adaptation of Dickens’ tale, Barter’s Playwright-in-Residence Catherine Bush amazes audiences as the story comes bursting to life in a stylized and fast-paced world that is sure to leave you gasping for breath and on your feet with excitement. Pip, a poor orphan child in 19th century England, is mysteriously plucked from obscurity by the wealthy and decaying Miss Havisham, changing his life forever. A secretive benefactor, unrequited love, and a series of great expectations plague Pip as he attempts to discover whether people can change who they truly are. Download study guide. Director's Notes RISIN’ ABOUT YOUR RAISIN’ Thoughts on GREAT EXPECTATIONS Barter commissioned this script as a gift for all of us. When we started brewing it, I had been recently acquainted with the incredible production of a different Dickensian novel, Nicholas Nickleby , that was done by the Royal Shakespeare Company back in the 1980’s; I loved the show’s focus on the actor, its celebration of the theatrical, and its sheer audacity. Inspired, I went back to my favorite Dickens, Great Expectations , for a look, and what struck me right away was how Dickens had captured something that felt simultaneously so true to his time/ place and to ours. He puts his finger on something palpable about growing up: a special brew of ambition, yearning, heartache, excitement, and struggle that I feel around me everyday here and now. What do you do when you have enormous ambitions for your life, but those ambitions give you deeply complicated feelings about where you come from? How do you achieve great things and still honor your home? I think Dickens hit upon something universal here—we all push back against our families and homes as we are figuring out who we are going to be; we all struggle in some way between our need to achieve and our need for home. It also struck me and struck me hard how Appalachian it felt to me. It reminded me of so many of the conversations I have had with young people here who have such a desire to fly away and such a fierce love of exactly where they are. The phrase I often heard them worry about was one you all will recognize: “Risin’ above your raisin’.” It occurred to me that the journey of Pip in this story has deep resonance for us. Pip comes from a rural place; he dreams of becoming something else and sometimes feels guilty that he wants that; he struggles between love of where he comes from and trying to distance himself from it. Pip in this play talks directly to us; he confides in us about what it feels like to strive and sometimes fail and what it is to finally discover what it means to reach as far as you can and also love who you actually are. It’s a gift to be reminded that we aren’t alone in this, no matter when and where we were born. For aren’t we all walking around with that young person inside us who knows what it is to yearn for success and home at the same time? Aren’t we all a messy and beautiful combination of our authentic selves and our great expectations?

  6. Singin' in the Rain (Sep 27) 33 days. Sep-27th to Nov-10th

     Thu, Sep 27th - Barter Theatre  Arts & Culture, Music 0
    “The Greatest Movie Musical of All Time” Book by Betty Comden and Adolph Green Songs by Arthur Freed and Nacio Herb Brown Based on the classic Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer film by special arrangement with Warner Bros Theatre Ventures “Make ‘Em Laugh,” “You Are My Lucky Star,” “You Were Meant for Me,” “All I do is Dream of You,” and, of course the title song, “Singin’ in the Rain,” are but a few of the wonderful songs from one of the most celebrated and beloved musical films ever made. Live and onstage, these unforgettable scenes, songs and dances will make you laugh, make you sing, wow you with the spectacle of it all, and leave you with a night to remember for the rest of your life. Director's Notes RAIN BRINGS LIFE Rain is refreshing. Rain is life giving. Rain cleanses. And in the case of Singin’ in the Rain , it is also wildly entertaining. Whenever it rains, everyone complains. Yet rain is necessary to our sustenance. Rain makes everything around us alive. The fact that rain brings life was not lost on Betty Comden and Adolph Green when they wrote Singin’ in the Rain . We take great joy in watching a young child play in a mud puddle or splash around in a sprinkler because we see the renewal, joy and refreshing image of being clean again. We experience immense pleasure in watching birds splash in a fountain. So what better image could there possible be for a man falling in love than singing and dancing in the rain? It’s the perfect image of freedom; there’s not a care in the world, even a downpour couldn’t dampen happiness. Don Lockwood singing and dancing in the rain reminds us of our childhood. He is free from the restraint of fame and publicity. But more than that, the rain, and his love of Kathy Seldon, cleanses him. And in the process, he helps to cleanse the world around him by doing what is right and fair. In the meantime, we get to be highly entertained by a boy and his friends splashing, playing, dancing and singing in the rain. If we could only experience that joy every day of our lives!

  7. Sally McCoy (Oct 04) 24 days. Oct-4th to Nov-10th

     Thu, Oct 4th - Barter Theatre  Arts & Culture, Family & Education 0
    “Winner of Barter’s 2018 Appalachian Festival of Plays and Playwrights.” By Alice Stanley In the midst of the first gruesomely violent event of the legendary Hatfield and McCoy feud, one woman does what she must to save her family. Sally McCoy tells a harrowing and deeply personal story which takes a hard look at how women’s stories and perspectives are too often excluded from our historical narratives. Set in August 1882, Sally’s three eldest sons are captured by the Hatfield clan. Sally defies her womanly place in the home and crosses miles of Appalachian wilderness in the dark of night to save her children from certain death at the vengeful hands of the Hatfields. After traveling all those miles alone, she arrives at the home of the Hatfield patriarch, “Devil” Anse Hatfield, and refuses to let anything stand in her way until she has seen the “Devil” face to face. Director's Notes We all know something or other about the epic feud between the Hatfields and McCoys. It is the stuff of American legend- a tribal tale of bloody vengeance that endured for the last 30 years of the 19th century. Maybe this particular feud sticks in the American psyche because it has all the elements of Shakespearean tragedy: family honor, betrayal, bloodlust, star-crossed lovers, and of course, a stolen pig. It was not nearly the bloodiest feud taking place in our young country at the time, but it would capture the imagination of historians and laymen alike, earning the Tug Fork River region the nickname “Murderland”. Ultimately, these two families believed in their own clan, no matter what, kinfolk above all else. And we need only watch five minutes of the evening news to see that this same mentality burns brightly, even today. Our play is set smack dab in the middle of these violent times, as Sally is surrounded by quick tempered men armed with guns, knives, and their blind hatred of “others” that colored every moment of her life. It does not dwell on big sweeping thoughts of social order, nor the decades of infighting that lead up to this dark night. Rather, it concerns itself with strength and fortitude, the incomparable bond, and resolute convictions of a mother’s love. At a time when wives and daughters were the slaves of the poorest families, who could expect such a woman to be brave? And who would allow her to speak her mind? Family was on Sally McCoy’s mind one night in 1882, as she made her way through the dark and treacherous woods to the old Hatfield home. Family. Her boys. Her everything. It would take epic courage to make this journey, to tiptoe across that threshold, to open her mouth, use her voice, and show her hand. Our Sally is a heroine ahead of her time, speaking truth to power; the consequences be damned.
