“Love this summer stock theatre!”
Reviewed 30 June 2013

What an absolutely amazing and magical place. This professional theatre have performers that are so talented. I love the bar show (totally free!) that is after the main performance. The apprentices work so very hard and are a joy to watch. No better way to spend a summer evening than going to the Barn Theatre. At intermission, there are benches outside to enjoy the summer. I always leave refreshed and recharged after being at the Barn Theatre. A true gem in Augusta, Michigan.

“Shows are top notch”
Reviewed 11 May 2013

The atmosphere and theater are a staple in the community. It was a nice and relaxing time with family and tons of laughs. Really took you out of the normal things in life and transported you into there world. Amazing.

“A local mainstay for stage productions”
Reviewed 23 March 2013

What a great place to go for an evening play. They show lots of musicals (not my cup of tea), but solid summer stock acting. The Rehearsal Shed is a little bar that is fun to hang out in even if not attending the show. The theatre really is in an old barn, but it has air conditioning. Nice grounds.

“SUPERB summer stock theatre”
Reviewed 16 March 2013

What a icon. This place has been churning out excellent productions for over 60 years. In addition to the main theatre they put on great "mini-shows" in The Rehearsal Shed Lounge. Would love to see someone else other than co-owner Penelope Alex in ALL of the female leads. I love Meryl Streep but I don't want to see her in every movie I go to either!

“AWESOME night at the theatre!”
Reviewed 19 February 2013

Grew up about 8 miles away and went for the first time this past summer! Man, if I would have known, I'd have gone sooner! Saw Rocky Horror Picture Show (HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!!) and it was the BEST I've ever seen! I have seen it live before elsewhere and it did not compare! This group is GREAT! And the resident bat "Batty" even made an appearance during the performance and it was epicly funny!! The actors treated him like he was ment to be there right when he showed up (freaked me out for a second but realized he was "family" so felt okay - as okay as you can with a bat swooping everywhere!). Did I mention it was AWESOME??!! :) You gotta check this place out!
