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.

"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. Because 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...

"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

Immortalized onstage and screen by Anne Bancroft and Patty Duke, this classic tells the story of Annie Sullivan and her student, blind and mute Helen Keller.  The Miracle Worker dramatizes the volatile relationship between the lonely teacher and her charge.  Trapped in a secret, silent world, unable to communicate, Helen is violent, spoiled, almost sub-human and treated by her family as such.  Only Annie realizes that there is a mind and spirit waiting to be rescued from the dark, tortured silence.  The play premiered on Broadway in 1959, and ran for over 700 performances on its way to four Tony Awards, including Best Play, Direction (Arthur Penn), Actress (Bancroft), and Stage Technician (John Walters).

This musical, which received rave reviews on its Broadway run, is based on the movie classic that runs round-the-clock on television every Christmas.  Set in the 1940s in the fictional town Hohman, Indiana, the musical follows 9-year-old Ralphie Parker, and his quest for the Holy Grail of Christmas gifts – an Official Red Ryder carbine-action 200-shot Range Model air rifle.  All the iconic scenes from the film are here, and the delightfully versatile score ranges from gentle ballads to show-stopping ensemble numbers such as “Ralphie to the Rescue,” “A Major Award,” “Sticky Situation,” and the inevitable “You’ll Shoot Your Eye Out!” A Christmas Story, The Musical will bring an exciting new dimension to those who have seen the movie and will certainly stand on its own for those who haven’t.
