Hi again folks! Due to the short time before the next show, we have changed course once again and decided to do a play we were considering for the fall. Since it consisted of a small cast and we had such a short time frame to get the production ready, it seemed like the perfect thing to do!
"A Bad Year For Tomatoes" by John Patrick (Cheating Cheaters, A Barrel Full of Pennies) tells the story of a fed up actress that leaves the pressures and demands of her acting career, to write her autobiography in a tiny New England town. She is successful in turning aside the offers pressed on her by her long-time agent, but dealing with her "Friendly" neighbors proves to be a different matter.
The Cast for Tomatoes is as follows:
Myra Marlowe - Sue Miles
Tom Lamont - Tim Miles
Cora Gump - Stacy Hubbel
Reba Harper - Sharla Jerrel
Piney - Bert Pezzarossi
Willa Mae Wilcox - Teresa Foley
Sheriff - David Kaiser
A Bad Year For Tomatoes is slated for August 5th-7th at the VA Auditorium.
I also wanted to take this time to thank all of those who auditioned for "The King and I". We are currently in the process of selecting a show for the fall production, with the hope that we will be able to count on many of your talents.

Rodger & Hammerstein's "The King & I" required a cast of 67 individuals. The Barn was not able to secure even half of the required numbers to produce this show. In light of this news, "The King & I" has been cancelled for Summer 2011.
A smaller, adult cast show "The Savage Dilemma" by John Patrick will be produced in early August.
It is unfortunate that the Barn was unable to produce a large musical this summer, but the group hopes to aim for a large production this fall.
The cast for "The Savage Dilemma" will be announced soon.
Thank you to everyone who auditioned for "The King & I" and the enthusiasm the Miles City Orchestra and community showed for a large-scale musical production-- we look forward to bringing one to the stage soon!
