|Maryanna Lauter and Madison Krumins play sisters in The Amish Project|
You might assume that the Farmington Players Barn Theater is a quiet place during the summer months now that the 2014-15 season is over. But as soon as the calendar turned from May to June, activities started heating up again at the Barn. Whether you’re a member, a patron, or just looking for something fun to do, here are some upcoming dates to put on your calendar.
The Amish Project. Friday June 12 8PM and Saturday June 13 8PM. Complete with its own symbolic Barn raising, The Amish Project is coming home for a command performance after wowing audiences at the Michigan AACTFest competition in Owosso, where Maryanna Lauter received the “Rising Actor” award and Steve White received the “Featured Actor” award. This heartfelt portrayal of events surrounding an Amish schoolhouse shooting is really about the power of forgiveness. Tickets available online at farmingtonplayers.org
