We're excited to bring you 3 exciting virtual events in August! It certainly doesn't replace being all together on the porch this summer, but we hope you will enjoy wonderful talents and productions of all ages.
Sunday, August 16 - Sunday, August 23
The Barn’s first event in August is an online gala performance called Barnies Shine On. A link to this exciting concert will be available to the public on Sunday, August 16th at 7PM and accessible to watch anytime for one week until 11:59PM on Sunday, August 23rd. The performance can be found on the New London Barn Playhouse social media accounts, the Barn website, and emailed to the contact list of patrons. Performances will feature some of our “All Star” alumni including Kennedy Caughell (Beautiful, National Tour), Colton Ryan (Apple TV+, Little Voice), Talia Susukauer (Wicked, National Tour), and many more! Barnies Shine On is free to view, but donations are encouraged by visiting our GIVE page.
Friday, August 21st at 11AM
The Education Department will wrap up their summer season of virtual performances with an online production of Gilbert and Sullivan's The Pirates of Penzance on Friday, August 21st at 11 AM. In this swashbuckling musical, loyal daughters, tenderhearted pirates, and a very modern major general are all on quests to find their own happily-ever-afters. Adventure, romance, and a birthday mix-up fill this hilariously joyous musical. The performance is free to attend and will be broadcast over the NLBP Education YouTube channel. The link to our YouTube channel, and the link to register for your free tickets, can be found by going to the Children’s Theater Series page.
Saturday, August 29th at 6PM

The radio play is a free event, though donations are welcomed by visiting our GIVE page. Sunset Boulevard will re-air on WSCS 90.9 on Sunday, August 30th at 7PM.
