It is with sadness that we share the news of the passing of great friend and huge supporter of the Barn Theatre: Roger Clark. Roger passed away at the age of 76 at his Naples, Florida home on December 30, 2020.
To say that Roger spent countless hours as part of our “Monday Morning Crew” of set construction volunteers would be an understatement. Roger was the Set Designer for more than 26 productions, the Set Construction Head for 73 (yes, 73! productions, and (along with his trusty dogs Taffy and Daisy) was on the Set Construction Crew for 109 (yes, 109!!) productions -- at least -- during his time at the Barn from 1970 to 2006.
But Roger’s volunteering wasn’t just backstage. He also appeared onstage 21 times, starting with “The Desperate Hours” in 1970 and ending with “Angel Street” in 2006. Roger also held numerous roles on our Board of Directors.
When Roger retired to Florida in 2006, the Barn lost a truly dedicated and value friend and volunteer. But it warmed our hearts that he found a theatre in Florida, The Naples Players, to be the recipient of his continuing gift of selfless volunteerism. And we know that The Naples Players were a better theatre for having Roger in their fold, just like we were.
Here is a link to Roger's many, many Barn Theatre credits:
Thank you for all your wonderful contributions to the Barn, Roger. Our hearts go out to your family and friends.
We will leave the light on for you.
