It is with great sadness that we announce the March 8th passing of Brian Schwartz, performer in many Barn Playhouse productions over the past twenty five years. Brian was last seen on our stage in our 2019 production of The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee as William Barfee. Brian performed and worked backstage on such shows as: Brighton Beach Memoirs, Guys and Dolls, A Few Good Men, Kiss Me, Kate, Sweeney Todd, Once Upon a Mattress, Do Black Patent Leather Shoes Really Reflect Up? and Sunday in the Park With George. Brian was also active at other local community theaters including Forge Theatre in Phoenixville and Barley Sheaf Players in Exton.
Funeral arrangements Saturday, March 13th at St. Philip Neri Church, 437 Ridge Pike, Lafayette Hill, PA 19444. Calling hours 9:30-11:00, followed promptly by a mass at 11:00 am. Brian's family has asked that, in lieu of flowers, donations be made to several community theaters in the area, including the Barn.

We extend our heartfelt sympathy to Brian's family, most especially, his wife Kelly.

A Message From Our President
This season has presented the Board of Directors with many unprecedented challenges. One of the challenges currently facing the group is our inability to really have any active members in 2020. With no active members, it is not possible to have elections as directed in our By-laws. To maintain continuity as we try to reopen the theater for the 2021 season, the Board of Directors has decided to extend all current officers’ terms into next season. The 2020 season will not count towards service limits for any of the Board positions.
