April 12-May 21
I Love You, You're Perfect, Now Change is a musical comedy with book and lyrics by Joe DiPietro and music by Jimmy Roberts. With 5,000 performances, it is the second-longest running Off Broadway musical. It is presented in the form of a series of vignettes connected by the central theme of love and relationships. The play's tagline is "Everything you have ever secretly thought about dating, romance, marriage, lovers, husbands, wives and in-laws, but were afraid to admit." This celebration of the mating game takes on the truths and myths behind that contemporary conundrum known as "the relationship". This hilarious revue pays tribute to those who have loved and lost, to those who have fallen on their face at the portal of romance, to those who have dared to ask, "Say, what are you doing Saturday night?"
May 24-October 14
Plain and Fancy
A New Yorker and his sophisticated girlfriend drive down around Lancaster, Pennsylvania, to sell a piece of property. Here they meet Amish folk, whose convoluted English speech, clothes and habits haven't changed for centuries. The clash of cultures educates and entertains at the same time in this quaint musical comedy. It was the first Broadway show for both composer Albert Hague and author Joseph Stein who each went on, respectively, to win Tony awards forRedhead and Fiddler On The Roof. The Round Barn Theatre has become the national home of this 1955 Broadway hit. This 2017 production marks the 31st anniversary year that The Round Barn Theatre has produced Plain and Fancy making it one of the longest running shows of all time.
June 9-July 16
Legally Blonde tells the story of Elle Woods, a sorority girl who enrolls at Harvard Law School to win back her ex-boyfriend Warner. She discovers how her knowledge of the law can help others, and successfully defends exercise queen Brooke Wyndham in a murder trial. Throughout the show, no one has faith in Elle Woods, but she manages to surprise them when she defies expectations while staying true to herself. It received seven Tony nominations and ten Drama Desk nominations and won three Laurence Olivier Awards, including the Best New Musical award. “Omigod You Guys,” “Legally Blond,” and “Daughter of Delta Nu” introduce new songs that are the spirit of the “can do show.”
July 25-August 27
Guys and Dolls is a musical based on short stories by Damon Runyon. The show won the Tony for Best Musical and was awarded, but never given, the Pulitzer Prize for Drama. The band members of the Save-a-Soul Mission, led by the pious and beautiful Sergeant Sarah Brown, call for sinners to "Follow the Fold" and repent. Petty gamblers Nicely-Nicely Johnson and Benny Southstreet’s employer, Nathan Detroit, runs an illegal floating crap game. Detroit bets Sky Masterson with the hope of winning rent money to continue the games “under” the law. The bet involves Sky’s ability to wow Miss Brown into a night in Cuba, which to Nathan’s amazement he successfully does. Meanwhile Detroit’s long time girlfriend, Adelaide implores him to marry her. As Sky falls for Sarah, the two unlikely couples wrestle with redemption until both women give up and agree to marry their men and reform them later. “A Bushel and a Peck,” “If I Were a Bell,” and “Sit Down, You’re Rockin’ the Boat” are all-time musical theatre standards that are always hard to get out of your head.
September 4-October 15
Sister Act is Broadway’s smash musical comedy based on the 1992 blockbuster movie starring Whoopi Goldberg. The musical features all original music by eight-time Oscar winner Alan Menken (Beauty and The Beast, The Little Mermaid,) and is filled with toe-tapping songs, show-stopping dance numbers and a truly touching story. After witnessing a crime, “Sweaty” Eddie decides that his girlfriend Deloris needs to go into the witness protection program and sends her to the place he believes the trigger man will never find her - a convent called The Holy Order of the Little Sisters of Our Mother of Perpetual Faith. After a wild night of carousing outside of the convent, Deloris attends the choir practice and loudly admits that the choir sounds terrible. This prompts the Mother Superior to let Deloris lead the choir. Deloris does so and teaches the nuns how to sing in key and on time. The Mother Superior, however, is horrified how the simple traditional choir she knew has changed and become modern. Filled with intrigue, suspense, and bumbling crooks, the suspense culminates as the nuns rally round Deloris and save her from meeting her maker. All the nuns and eventually the entire cast perform for the Pope. “Sister Act,” “Spread the Love Around,” and Take Me to Heaven” are songs that move the action along.
October 18-November 5
