A Note from the Director…

olin davidson"Impossible for a plain yellow pumpkin to become a golden carriage,"

Not here at The Round Barn Theatre! With the help of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s beautiful score and the fairy Godmother's magic, every little girl's dreams can come true this season. Cinderella is a wonderful story full of imagination, wishes, and dreams. In every child's daydreams their wishes come true and this is a perfect example of being able to believe that anything can happen if you believe in yourself and your imagination. Cinderella lets her mind wander to places she can only dream about and I hope this production takes you away for a brief time to a world full of hope, love, and romance. With songs like "Do I Love You Because You're Beautiful," "In My Own Little Corner," and "Ten Minutes Ago," you’ll be humming all the way home. So polish up your glass slippers, get your carriage ready, and we'll see you at the ball.

The ForeignerJeremy Littlejohn (King) is a native Hoosier who has been performing his whole life and getting paid for it for the past thirteen years.  There isn’t much Jeremy hasn’t done at Amish Acres having now worked here in three different decades both on the Joseph Stein Stage and in the Historic Area.  He is probably remembered for his performance credits but is most proud of introducing non-musicals to the Round Barn patrons by way of the Second Stage Series, which has resulted in the production you are about to see.  He has logged over 700 performances of Plain and Fancy playing all of the male roles and directed the show four times including the 20th Anniversary season.  Some of his other notable RBT accomplishments include directing Irving Berlin’s White Christmas, which is the most attended production in the theatre’s history, starring in Seven Brides for Seven Brothers and Fiddler on the Roof which are in the top five on that list and bringing the Adam Guettel masterpiece Floyd Collins to the area.  In his spare time he is a private acting coach and Simpsons Super Freak!

Richard Pletcher (Executive Producer), with his father LaVern, founded Amish Acres in 1968. The Amish farm was preserved and restored and is now listed in The National Register of Historic Places. Following a one year experiment in dinner-theatre with George Bledsoe in 1971, he added musical theatre to the interpretation of the historic farm by producing Plain and Fancy in the Locke Township Meeting House in 1986. It moved to the Round Barn Theatre in 1991. The play has been running for 25 consecutive years having surpassed 3,500 performances before audiences of over 350,000 people. Plain and Fancy’s Tony Award® winning author Joseph Stein and Tony Award® winning composer Albert Hague have attended Plain and Fancy at Amish Acres.

At Mr. Stein’s urging Amish Acres became a regional musical repertory theatre in 1996 with the addition of five shows in rotation with Plain and Fancy each season. Amish Acres has now produced seventy two different main stage Broadway musicals and The Round Barn Theatre stage is named for and dedicated to Joseph Stein. Eight of Mr. Stein’s musicals have been produced on his stage, including Plain and Fancy, Fiddler on the Roof, The Baker’s Wife, and Zorba, plus staged readings of Take Me Along, Rags, and Carmelina, plus a Second Stage Production of Enter Laughing. As you might expect, he has said that The Round Barn Theatre is his favorite regional theatre with which he has been associated.

In October of 2006, Dick and his wife Susan were guests of Joseph and Elisa Stein in New York City for the York Theatre’s Mufti Series production of Plain and Fancy, the last in a month long, three show festival of Stein’s work that included Take Me Along and Carmelina. Artistic Director James Morgan recognized Amish Acres’ twenty year production of Plain and Fancy in the program and in his introductions from the stage. The Pletchers and Jeremy Littlejohn attended the York’s presentation of the Oscar Hammerstein Lifetime Achievement Award in Musical Theatre to Joseph Stein in November of 2007. Stein was further inducted into the Theatre Hall of Fame in February of 2008. He passed away in 2010 and the Joseph Stein Memorial Fund was created to provide free season tickets to kids.

Philip B. Richard II (Production Stage Manager / Lighting Designer) is excited to be joining The Round Barn Theatre family for his first season. Philip grew up in Dallastown, PA and was an Entertainment Coordinator for 5 years at the Walt Disney World Resort and has previously worked for Austin Shakespeare Festival, Orlando Shakespeare Theater,Festival 56 in Princeton, IL, and recently Honolulu Theatre for Youth. His regional credits include the National Post Broadway premiere of Souvenir with Orlando Theatre Project and World Premiers of If You Give A Moose A Muffin, Stripes & Stars, and Wittenberg. Philip’s regional lighting credits include productions of The Pillowman, Stripes and Stars, Nosferatu, Rocky Horror Show, Footloose, Scrooge, and Jesus Christ Superstar. Philip is a member of the Equity Membership Candidate program and the Stage Manager Association.
I would like to thank Kevin for his continued encourgment and you the audience for supporting the arts, without you theatre would not be possible. Enjoy the show!

Laurie Schotz (Managing Artistic Director / Costumes) is thrilled to be returning for a second season at Amish Acres. Before joining the Amish Acres staff in 2009 she was the Artistic Director for 10 years at Bearcreek Farms Resort in Bryant, IN. Prior to her time there, you could have seen her fall off a building at Old Tucson Studios, aboard a cruise as a production singer/dancer, or running her own entertainment company in Chicago, IL for 13 years. She would like to thank her brother Michael for teaching and guiding her through a difficult time but always keeping her laughing. He has taught her a goal is a dream with a deadline.
I hope you enjoy your whole experience at Amish Acres and remember to “Embrace the Pace!”
