I thoroughly enjoyed the Barter Theater Road Scholar program. The Main Stage, and Stage II theaters are wonderful venues for the variety of plays we saw. In the four days, during which we stayed at the 4-H Center, we had a chance to see five different productions. They ranged from a show targeting children, Clementine, to a full blown musical, The Music Man. We saw two very new productions which were bold and thought provoking, Friendly's Fire and Ghost, Ghost, Come Out Tonight. The actors are excellent, all having great dancing and singing talent. We had several lunches at the 4-H center when we were joined by the cast and could question them about their background and training. We enjoyed opportunities to have 'talk backs' with the actors, Director, and Playwright either before of after four of the shows. We also dined at wonderful venues such as Heartwood, which showcases local Artisans and has a BBQ every Thursday evening at which individuals from the community will come up to play Blue Grass and country songs. After the first evening's performance of Friendly's Fire we had a chance for a talk-back with the cast and Director of the group as to the meaning of the messages of the performance. It was a new play and quite thought provoking on a subject which is quite current: PTSD. It was a magical week, with a receptive and welcoming staff at the 4-H and the theater from everyone ranging from the cast, director, assistant directors, stage hands, and production crew. The experience is one that should not be missed by any Road Scholar. We also had an opportunity to experience an Improv Workshop. We found depths of acting abilities that were untapped and eager to shine forth. It was a great week and I look forward to signing up again for the program next year. My question is: Could you do the program more than just once a year since the productions are changed with each season? I am sure that we would all return. Thank you Road Scholar!
