The Barnstormers Theater  "The oldest continuously operating community theater in Pennsylvania..."

Reservations or Advanced Tickets Purchase Highly Advised!!!

This is our Annual Appetizer and Dessert Theater.

In this spoofy, musical murder whodunit, Hercules Porridge Jr., son of the famous Hoboken detective of the same name, just might solve the mystery.  Or he might not.  Overcoming his ineptness to investigate the goings on at Crooked House, a seedy hotel where the guests pay outrageous rent for shoddy service, he discovers what they are actually paying is BLACKMAIL!  Adding murder to the mystery, a corpse is discovered in the sitting room, and a beautiful secretary is done in by deadly orchid juice.  This is classic Tim Kelly at his best, full of eccentric characters, including mystery writer Anguish Crispie, a curious young man in safari attire, a strange actress, a crackpot colonel, and a directionally-challenged butler.  Read more...With a rousing and haunting score by the amazing Bill Francoeur, this campy private eye musical comedy is worth further investigation!

 Shows Dates:  Feb 8, 9, 15, 16  @ 8 pm  & Fb 10 @ 3 pm

All the world's a stage, And all the men and women merely players; They have their exits and their entrances, And one man in his time plays many parts, His acts being seven ages."
William Shakespeare

“The theatre is a place where one has time for the problems of people to whom one would show the door if they came to one's office for a job.”
― Tennessee Williams
