“We are incredibly excited to be preparing for our 70 th anniversary season, especially on the
heels of an extremely challenging 2020-2021 season,” said Barnstormers Executive Director
Some shows in the 2021-2022 season may be performed to a limited in-house audience and
virtually to comply with COVID-19 restrictions; it is recommended that patrons purchase season
subscriptions early to ensure their seat in the theatre.
“As the longest continuously operating community theatre in Oregon, it is a tremendous feat to
reach 70 years of existence,” continued Sabel. “Barnstormers Theatre is comprised of resilient
and creative volunteers, and we have imbued this creativity into our upcoming season. There is
much to look forward to.”
