Many are small like (Key West Country Western Dancers) and they are targeted more for the locals.

SYLVIA
MARCH 18- April 12, 2008   http://www.redbarntheatre.org/
By A. R. Gurney     Directed by Joy Hawkins
Dramatic literature is stuffed with memorable love scenes, but none is as delicious and dizzy as the one that begins this smash hit comedy. When middle-aged Gregg returns to his Upper West Side apartment accompanied by Sylvia, a frisky blonde he has just picked up in the park, he turns his life upside down. The trouble is the frisky blonde is an irresistible dog who is about to chew a hole in his 22-year old marriage. This show is a hilarious commentary on mid-life and the role pets play in our lives. Reprising her tour de force performance in one of the Barn’s most beloved tales is Marjorie Paul-Shook as the adorable pooch, along with Richard Grusin and Mimi McDonald from the original cast.
“Marjorie Paul-Shook sparkles, shines, bounces and flounces and acts altogether doggy.” -The Key West Citizen
“Forget Lassie and Rin-Tin-Tin. I’ve never seen a dog portrait in films or on the stage that quite matches the truth and wit of Sylvia.” -The New York Times

MAVIS AND THE THREE BEARS
Limited engagement, 2 weeks only ! April 22 - May 3, 2008  http://www.redbarntheatre.org/
A Musical Fable   Book and Lyrics by Blake Hunter
Music by Franko Richmond     Directed by Joy Hawkins
Living in a doublewide trailer, working in a cafeteria and putting up with a good for nothing boyfriend named Floyd can get a girl down but luck changes for Mavis Fluck when she dyes her hair blonde and meets the adorable Bear family. The incredible melodies of Franko Richmond and lyrics of Blake Hunter will tug at your heartstrings and tap on your funny bone with songs like Spunk and A Grin on My Face. However the surprise ending will ensure that this adult story is no ordinary fairy tale. The Red Barn is proud to present this original musical fable written by two of Key West’s most notable artists.

ROMPERS
Limited engagement, 2 weeks only ! May 13 - May 24  http://www.redbarntheatre.org/

Included in the evening will be Libations written by Michael Marrero, the winner of this summer’s successful collaboration between The Red Barn Theatre and The Studios of Key West, One Night Stand – an original short play competition. This theatrical venture will make for a very memorable, high-energy evening—Key West style.

THE VAGINA MONOLOGUES
Sunday/ Monday Series   http://www.redbarntheatre.org/
MAR 23, 24, 30, 31, Apr. 6, 7
By Eve Ensler   Directed by Carole MacCartee
Eve Ensler has put vaginas on the map. To be more accurate, she has put them all over the globe, from Sarajevo to Johannesburg, from Antarctica to Manila, and many places in between—over 800 productions have been staged in over 30 countries. The brilliance of the show is part stand-up routine, part consciousness-raising session, part political rally, part market research survey, part revival meeting, part group therapy, and part theatre. The Red Barn enjoyed a huge success with this show and is bringing it back to Key West. You won’t want to miss this roller coaster ride. Spread the word.
“ A bona fide phenomenon. Sex has never been funnier or more poignant.”   -The New York Times
