Heroes of the
Fourth Turning

by Will Arbery

“Heroes shows us how language, even at it’s most
beautiful, can destabilize a mind, a backyard, the world.”

—Time Out New York

Embrace Empathy

Sep 30th –Oct 24th

TRUBLU Reservations Open Aug 30th.
Single Tickets on Sale Sep 7th.

It’s nearing midnight in Wyoming, where four young conservatives have gathered at a backyard after-party. They’ve returned home to toast their mentor Gina, newly inducted as president of a tiny Catholic college. But as their reunion spirals into spiritual chaos and clashing generational politics, it becomes less a celebration than a vicious fight to be understood.

FEATURING: Thomas Gjere, Suzanne Withem, Anna Jordan, Michael Judah, and Joey Hartshorn.

Directed by Barry Carman. Dramatugy by Rachel Grossman. Set design by Jason Jamerson. Lighting design by Homero Vela. Costume design by Jocelyn Reed. Sound design by Bill Kirby. Properties by Amy Reiner. Fight choreography by Matthew Olsen.

TruBLU Memberships

Season 33 Memberships available now

Serving our Community

BLUEBARN Theatre offers a number of special discounts and programs aimed at ensuring that our boundary-breaking, enriching productions are always affordable.

TruBlu Memberships

TRUBLU Season Membership sales for 2021/2022 start August 16th.

BLUCrew Memberships (35 or under)

*Due to the pandemic, and changing best guidance on capacity, BluCrew tickets will be available less often, and on shorter notice, this season*

Are you 35 or under? You can sign up for our BLUCrew memberships for FREE! You’ll get discount tickets for the whole season with no upfront cost.  These special memberships are open to ANYONE  under 35 years old. BLUEBARN is committed to making sure our theater remains accessible and affordable for young audiences and students.     

BLUCrew members will have access to Hot Ticket pricing ($20) for most Thursday and Sunday shows at the BLUEBARN through the box office, for themselves and a guest.  Members will also receive special offers throughout the season.

To join, simply e-mail your name, age, email, and address to bcarman@bluebarn.org .

As a BLUCrew member, you’ll receive emails prior to the run of every show confirming the dates your tickets will be available. To reserve and purchase your tickets simply call the box office at (402) 345-1576.

Tickets subject to availability.

Hot Tickets

*Due to the pandemic, and the best current safety guidance, all onsite performances will be reserved seating only for the 20-21 season. No walk-in tickets will be available. If reduced pricing becomes available, BLUEBARN will announce via social media, and these reservations may be placed by phone through the box office*

Because we know you don’t always know you want to see a show until you do. Because we’d hate for you to miss out because you didn’t think you could get tickets last minute. Because we want to make sure we provide as many low-cost opportunities to experience live theatre as possible.

BLUEBARN offers rush tickets for any unsold seat at every performance for only $20.

Hot Tickets are available in person at the box office on a first-come, first-serve basis starting 45 minutes before showtime. Limit of two tickets per person.

If you’re willing to take a bit of a risk, you could just find yourself seeing great theatre at a great price.

Hot Tickets are not available for the final weekend of any performance run. Exceptions are rare, but Hot Tickets may not be available for other certain VIP performances and special engagements. Tickets are subject to availability.  We regularly post about sold-out shows on Facebook, and also recommend checking in with the box office on Hot Tickets availability for a particular show (402)345-1576.
