Barron Spotlighters is proud to announce our 2017-2018 Season, audition dates TBA soon:

 

“Driving Miss Daisy” – August 2017: 14th, 15th, 16th, 17th, 18th (7:30pm),19th (2:30pm matinee)
Daisy Werthan , an elderly Jewish widow living in Atlanta, is determined to maintain her independence. However, when she crashes her car, her son Boolie arranges for her to have a chauffeur, an African-American driver named Hoke Colburn. Daisy and Hoke‘s relationship gets off to a rocky start, but they gradually form a close friendship over the years, one that transcends racial prejudices and social conventions.


“Pride and Prejudice” – September 2017: 29th, 30th, October 1st, 6th, 7th, 8th

Mrs. Bennett is determined to get her daughters married. Jane, Elizabeth and Lydia are likely-looking girls in a period when a woman’s one possible career was matrimony. To be a wife was success. Anything else was failure. Jane with her Mr. Bingley and Lydia with her Mr. Wickham are quite content with things as they are, but not Elizabeth! She actually refuses to marry Mr. Collins, whom she openly deplores, as well as Mr. Darcy, whom she secretly adores. This play is the story of the duel between Elizabeth and her pride, and Darcy and his prejudice. Each gives in before the evening is over and pride and prejudice meet halfway.


“Peter Panic” – February 2018: 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 9th, 10th, 11th
Pam is the president of the drama club at her high school, but due to cutbacks the club may soon be eliminated.  Pam and her thespian friends decide to save the club by putting on a huge production of Peter Pan.  But Coach Rook has other plans.  He’s facing his own budget crisis within his football program and sets his Pirates loose on the drama club to wreak havoc!  Football players audition for parts, cheerleaders become mermaids, and in desperation Pam recruits students from detention to play the Lost Boys…and, well, Lost Girls.  As if surviving Rook’s sabotage wasn’t bad enough, Peter Pan spirals into Peter Panic when the school suddenly includes hooks on the list of weapons banned at school!  Just when all seems lost, star quarterback Tinkerman, who plays — you guessed it! — Tinkerbell, sacrifices everything including his football career so the show can go on and Pam can see her dream come true.  This refreshingly clever and fun homage to the original classic is full of heart and will remind both the young and the young-at-heart to always follow their dreams!

“Church Basement Ladies” – April 2018: 13th, 14th, 15th, 20th, 21st, 22nd

A celebration of the church basement kitchen and the women who work there, Church Basement Ladies is a musical comedy featuring four distinct characters and their relationships as they organize and prepare food and solve the problems of a rural Minnesota church about to undergo changes in 1965. From the elderly matriarch of the kitchen to the young bride-to-be learning the proper order of things, we see them handle a record breaking Christmas dinner, the funeral of a dear friend, a Hawaiian Easter fundraiser and a steaming hot July wedding. They stave off potential disasters, share and debate recipes, instruct the young and keep the Pastor on course while thoroughly enjoying, (and tolerating) each other as the true “steel magnolias” of the church. Funny and down to earth, audiences will recognize these ladies as they witness the church year unfold from below the house of God.
