Ring-a-ding-ding, we're shaking off the cobwebs and gearing up for another season of Barn Theatre Theatre. We've got a lot to catch up on, so let's dive in!
Over the pandemic, we took the opportunity to upgrade our backend systems, and we've partnered with Arts People, a leading ticketing and membership management service. You'll be getting an email from Arts People on Sunday, August 1, probably right after breakfast, with instructions on how to renew your membership.
To keep things simple, we made a little video to show you what to expect and how to proceed. (Scroll down for the link)
We're very excited about the functionality that Arts-People brings to the table - most notably they give you the the ability to change or pick your seats and manage your own ticket exchanges. You don't have to talk to the box office staff (unless you're lonely) to switch your seats anymore! Just go on line, swap them out, print the new tickets at home and show up at the theatre.
We've changed our performance calendar. In prior seasons, we were performing 10 shows over 4 weekends which was becoming more and more difficult because our volunteers, while they love performing and supporting the theatre, were having a hard time keeping their calendars clear for so many weekends. So,we reduced the number of performances and weekends that we're presenting, and we're now doing 9 shows over 3 weekends, just like the olden days.
What this means, however, is if you were a subscriber with tickets on our 3-SAT series, we aren't able to offer you your same seats going forward. We want to do what we can to put you in seats you like, so our 3-SAT patrons already got an email explaining things in more detail and their next steps forward.
The last item is we've had some personnel changes over the pandemic. We've got some new faces in the box office and membership chairs! After 20 years as membership director, I'm retiring my post, effective the end of December, and in the meantime, I'm helping bring Erika Wynzel (you might remember her from her hysterical performance in A Comedy of Tenors a couple seasons back) up to speed on the job. Retirement was in the air, because Cookie and Cheryl, the heart and soul of our box office, stepped down as well, but we couldn't be more excited to have the fabulous Kathy Falcone-Bernstein stepping in to oversee our box office operations. It's an exciting time!!
You can find our COVID protocols here for the coming season, but lLong story short, The Barn Theatre recognizes that vaccines have been a strong achievement in handling the COVID-19 pandemic. Until further notice, ALL ticket holders MUST show proof of COVID-19 vaccination when they arrive at the theatre. If you are unvaccinated OR are unable to be vaccinated due to a medical issue, you MUST present a negative COVID-19 test taken within 48 hours prior to your arrival at the theatre. Our central focus is to keep our patrons safe as they continue to enjoy the wonderful performances at The Barn Theatre.
