The Round Barn Theatre at Amish Acres



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.

"Without a doubt, Amish Acres Round Barn Theatre is becoming the best regional theatre in the Midwest. As a matter of fact, I've enjoyed some of your past performances better than some Broadway shows that I've seen." ~Season Subscriber

Amish Acres

A New Yorker and his sophisticated girlfriend drive down around Lancaster, Pennsylvania, to sell a piece of property. Here they meet the Amish folk, whose convoluted English speech, clothes and habits haven’t changed for centuries. The clash of cultures educates and entertains at the same time in this quaint musical comedy. It was the first Broadway show for both composer Albert Hague and author Joseph Stein who each went on to win Tony awards for Redhead and Fiddler On The Roof, respectively. More...

Smoke on the Mountain tells the story of the Sanders family and their Saturday Night Gospel concert at the Mount Pleasant Baptist Church in 1938.  It features over two dozen rousing southern gospel and bluegrass songs sung and played by the Sanders family, a traveling group making their return to performing after a five year hiatus.  Though they try to appear perfect to the congregation, a sequence of “witnessing” from the each family member reveals their true…and hilariously imperfect nature.  Originally produced on the Joseph Stein Stage in 2000, Smoke on the Mountain was so popular with our audience, that we gave it a revival in 2005, one of the earliest instances of repeating a show at the Round Barn Theatre.

When Elwood P. Dowd starts to introduce his imaginary friend, Harvey, a six-and-a-half-foot rabbit, to guests at a society party, his sister, Veta, has seen as much of his eccentric behavior as she can tolerate. She decides to have him committed to a sanitarium to spare her daughter, Myrtle Mae, and their family from future embarrassment. Originally produced on Broadway in 1944, this Pulitzer Prize winner ran for 1,775 performances and was adapted into a classic film starring Jimmy Stewart and Josephine Hull.  A revival of the show starring Jim Parsons of “The Big Bang Theory” fame opened in 2012 and ran for the duration of the summer.

Travers and the 1964 film starring Julie Andrews and Dick Van Dyke, Mary Poppins delighted audiences for over 2,500 performances on Broadway and received nine Olivier nominations and seven Tony Awards, including Best Musical.  Filled with timeless classics such as “Feed the Birds,” “Jolly Holiday,” “Step in Time,” and the Academy Award winning “Chim-Chim Cher-ee,” this show can only be described as “Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!” More...
