Barter Youth Academy Fall 2017 Shows


Middle School/High School:

Anne of Green Gables by Cathy Bush

“Marilla Cuthbert and her brother Matthew are determined to adopt an orphan boy to help them run Green Gables, their farm on beautiful Prince Edward Island. But their well-ordered lives take a surprising and hilarious twist when the boy they hoped for turns out to be a redheaded slip-of-a-girl named Anne Shirley, whose wild imagination leads her into countless scrapes, as well as a place in our hearts forever.” – CatherineBushPlays.com

Elementary:

Robin Hood by Cathy Bush

“Robin Hood and his band of Merry Men are determined to save their countrymen from the clutches of the wicked Prince John. One day, while robbing from the rich to give to the poor, Robin meets the beautiful Lady Marian, who is being forced to marry the prince against her will. Can Robin rescue her before it’s too late? Join us for an action packed adventure through Sherwood Forest as we relive the most famous English legend of all.” – CathyBushPlays.com

Junior Troupe:

James and the Giant Peach

(Auditions: August 5th from 11 am to 4 pm. Click here for more information or to sign up for an audition slot: https://barteryouthacademy.formstack.com/forms/jr_troupe_audition_signup)

“The story of Roald Dahl’s classic tale is faithfully told by James himself and the insect characters – Miss Spider, Old-Green-Grasshopper, Centipede, Ladybird, and Earthworm. The play begins at the end of the story, when James and his friends are living in the giant peach stone in Central Park, New York.

A tour guide brings a party of tourists (the audience) to see this major attraction, and James and his friends tell the story of how they came to live in New York. The insects play the other roles, like James’s cruel Aunt Sponge and Aunt Spiker, and the epic journey across the Atlantic is acted out with live action, puppetry and storytelling in David Wood's masterful adaptation.” – Samuel French

Troupe:

The Real Inspector Hound by Tom Stoppard

(Auditions: Friday, August 4th & Saturday August 5th. Click here for more information or to sign up for an audition slot: https://barteryouthacademy.formstack.com/forms/troupe_audition_signup)

(Edited — Family Friendly)

“It is a foggy and foreboding day at Muldoon Manor. This charming, but isolated, English country house is populated by tortured and suspicious characters. A game of bridge results in raised temperatures and veiled threats; a mysterious man, possibly mad, shows up to charm the lady of the house and her young friend; and a dead body lies under the sofa, waiting to be discovered. All the while, a pair of pretentious critics comment on the action, munch chocolates, complain bitterly about their professional rivals. In The Real Inspector Hound, Tony and Academy award-winning playwright Tom Stoppard has crafted a witty, surreal, and compelling tale in which identity is as changeable as a moustache, or a pair of boots, and a hack production of a tired whodunnit can be the cover for a masterful revenge plot, trained on the professional members of the audience.”- StageAgent.com
