In July 2017, we were excited to begin a new program:  Barnstormers: Workshop for Aspiring Young Playwrights.  Guided by Greg Dziama, Margy Haas, Sheila Drain and Dave Cockley, our 4 students: Hayden Atzberger, Philip Sutherland, Emerah Myslenski, Gus Priemer wrote and performed in 4 one-act plays:

AVERAGE JOE  by Hayden Atzberger, directed by Sarah Blubaugh
DEBT by Philip Sutherland, directed by Kelsey Jones
HAMLET: AN ESSAY by Emerah Myslenski, directed by Sarah Blubaugh
WHAT CAN YOU DO?  by Gus Priemer, directed by Kelsey Jones

They were assisted by Sarah Blubaugh, Jessica Filkill, Kelsey Jones, and Carolyn Riedel.  Congrats to our young playwrights on their hard work. Photos are from performance night #1:
