The BLUEBARN Theatre is proud to present its

By Jordan Harrison (September 24 – October 18,
Humana Festival Pick
Kai is a ten-year-old boy at his grandfather's
knee listening to a story of a magic doorknob.
Jump 15 years and he is a young television
writer weathering the humiliations of the
Hollywood rat race.
Jump in time again, and he and his future
husband watch the caterer streak through their
wedding reception. Has Kai run into powerful
magic or has he just realized the breakneck
speed of an ordinary life and what he might
have missed? A funny and honest tale about
living in the moment.

Naughty Noël
By Tim Siragusa; Songs by Jill Anderson
(November 27-December 20, 2015)
Back by popular demand!! Little Nelly's Naughty
Noël is a Blue Barn perversion of all we hold
dear, at that holliest, jolliest time of the
year! With a mad gang of varmints both bawdy
and bold, the play takes a wild, woolly romp
through Nebraskee of old in an evening that can
be described as "Willa Cather on crack" or "The
Gift of the Magi" laid out on a rack!

By Peter Morgan (February 4-28, 2016)
Richard M. Nixon has just resigned the United
States presidency in total disgrace over
Vietnam and the Watergate scandal. British
talk-show host David Frost has become a lowbrow
laughing-stock. Determined to resurrect his
career, Frost risks everything on a series of
in-depth interviews in order to extract an
apology from Nixon. The cagey Nixon, however,
is equally bent on redeeming himself in his
nation's eyes. In the television age, image is
king, and both men are desperate to outtalk and
upstage each other as the cameras roll. The
result is the interview that sealed a
president's legacy.

Twenty years ago, Pastor Paul's church was
nothing more than a modest storefront. Now he
presides over a congregation of thousands, with
classrooms for Sunday School, a coffee shop in
the lobby, and a baptismal font as big as a
swimming pool. Today should be a day of
celebration. But Paul is about to preach a
sermon that will shake the foundations of his
church's belief. A big-little play about faith
in America—and the trouble with changing your

Music, Lyrics, and Book by Laurence O'Keefe and
Kevin Murphy (May 19-June 19, 2016)
The darkly delicious story of Veronica Sawyer,
the brainy and beautiful misfit who hustles her
way into the most powerful and ruthless clique
at Westerberg High: the Heathers. But before
she can get comfortable atop the high school
food chain, Veronica falls for the dangerously
sexy new kid, J.D., who plans to put the
Heathers in their place - six feet under.
