Season 32 marks a profound shift in perspective. This year we give focus to building on BLUEBARN’s transformative programming and services, seeding the fires that will light our way for years to come.
A different kind of season awaits us.

A different kind of membership awaits you…

In these extraordinary times, we invite you to become caretakers of BLUEBARN’s mission. We invite you to provoke thought, emotion, action, and change in our community. Your BLUEBARN membership is a commitment, not to a certain number of productions or nights of theatre, but to the BLUEBARN’s essential work on and off the stage,
our values, our art, and our artists.   

Incomparable theatre and incandescent storytelling remain at the core of our work. For these wild times, we have imagined adventurous new ways to bring the power of story back into all our lives. We have also dreamed up better ways to harness your BLUEBARN membership to extend the reach of our art and sustain the lives of artists. 

BLUEBARN is proud to announce a host of programs and programming that we hope will ignite and inspire you. We must acknowledge as we do so the very real uncertainty of the coming year. Our season accepts disruptions and adaptations to shifting circumstances as givens. 

The mission stands. The work continues. Join us in lighting the fires that will guide us through this Season of the Unknown and into the future.

With gratitude,

Susan Clement-Toberer,
Producing Artistic Director

BLUEBARN Theatre’s guiding principals are to provoke thought, emotion, action, and change through theatre. Over the past week, both nationally and locally, we have been tragically reminded why those principals are so essential. In his seminal 1996 speech ‘The Ground on Which I Stand’, August Wilson said “I believe in the American theatre. I believe in its power to inform about the human condition, I believe in its power to heal, ‘to hold the mirror as ’twere up to nature,’ to the truths we uncover, to the truths we wrestle from uncertain and sometimes unyielding realities.” As we face the unyielding realities of injustice, racism, violence, brutality, and murder, BLUEBARN is committed to making sure all people have a voice on our stage, to uncovering the truths that bind us together, and to facilitating action, change, and healing.


Red Summer Script

In September of 2019, BLUEBARN produced Red Summer, a new work by Omaha playwright Beaufield Berry.  

“When I wrote Red Summer last year, I delved into a world of job shortages, incendiary headlines, corrupt governments both national and local, weaponized white woman tears, nationwide race riots, Black PTSD and mental health and an unprosecuted lynching in downtown Omaha. It was set in 1919.” 

PDFBeaufield has graciously allowed us to share her script with you.
