employment

 

logoNorthern Indiana's Premier Repertory Theatre

Bringing you the Best of Broadway's Golden Age of Musical Theatre, The Round Barn Theatre at Amish Acres is created from a 1911 round barn that was dismantled and resurrected at the historic farmstead to become a professional repertory theater company.

Over one hundred Broadway musicals have been produced over the last two decades. The professional acting company is assembled from auditions across the country and is housed on the farm. The Round Barn Theatre is a full performing arts venue with its own scene shop and rehearsal space. It employs a full time technical staff including artistic director, stage manager, sound and wardrobe designers.

 

The National Home of Plain and Fancy

An Amish Acres tradition, Plain and Fancy, fills the proscenium Joseph Stein Stage each April through October. This gentle but spirited musical comedy brought the first national attention to the quaint customs, stern morals and picturesque dress of the Amish. Over 3,000 shows have been performed, and over 300,000 patrons have marveled at Amish Acres nationally recruited cast, English Strand theatre lighting, full-scale, authentic sets and costumes over the last decade.

"Coming of Age" is a relative thing; we all experience it, and we’ve chosen 21 as the symbol of this part of life’s journey. MontageBecause The Round Barn Theatre has been presenting repertory theatre for 21 years, we’ve chosen to design our season around shows that are Coming of Age stories of love and discovery.

From the first date to marriage and beyond in I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change to Elle Woods turning blonde into a legal eagle in Legally Blonde, to Katie Yoder and Peter Reber’s long sought love in Plain and Fancy. Throw in Sister Deloris finding her voice in the chapel choir in Sister Act, and Sarah Brown attempting to save sinners in our revival of Guys and Dolls, and you have a recipe for magic! The Mousetrap came of age when it opened in the West End of London in 1952, and has been running continuously ever since. It has by far the longest initial run of any play in history, with its 25,000th performance taking place in 2012. The Holiday Musical is to be announced soon pending royalty approval. More...
