New London Barn Playhouse Announces 2022 Summer Season -A CHORUS LINE, MAMMA MIA! & More

Put on your dancing shoes and get ready to cut loose for the New London Barn Playhouse's 90th Summer Season! Returning to the beloved Barn Playhouse after a two-year hiatus, we are back in person for a hit season that you won't want to miss. The Play A Part campaign has provided the means to complete long-awaited projects that benefit both patrons and staff. The Barn Playhouse is excited to provide patrons with restrooms on the porch level, elevators, a paved parking lot, and a state-of-the-art air filtration system in the playhouse itself. The newly renovated Box Office is now open, so come on by to pick up tickets, greet the company, and grab a t-shirt!


The 90th season features a talented group of new Barnies in the 2022 Acting Intern Company! Executive Artistic Director Keith Coughlin and Managing Director Elliott Cunningham traveled to New York, Boston, and to universities across the United States seeking the best and brightest upcoming talent for this season. After auditioning well over 1,000 actors, this year's cohort of 14 Acting Interns are as dedicated as they are skilled.

Get ready to meet Jenessa Altvater from Chicago College of Performing Arts at Roosevelt University, Katelyn Baughman and Keaton Miller from Baldwin Wallace University, Ricky Cardenas and Bailey Poe from Rider University, Yoni Haller, Bella Lopez, and Max Smaretsky from The Hartt School, Anne-Sophie Hill from Elon University, Abby Linderman from Pace University, Dylan Lugosi and Daniel Tracht from Penn State University, Justin Payton Nelson from Millikin University, and Nicholas Traficante from Ithaca College.
