Barn Players promote upcoming benefit


OK… show us what you’ve got! And The Barn will share what we get! 

Since all of this began, The Barn Players has been working closely with Crush Media to help bring the community together through theatre in the safest way possible. Obviously, that task has proven difficult in a world that changes with the hour – but we’ve finally landed on the best solution: A Barn Players Benefit for ALL… from home!

We’ve been seeing your posts asking the world what your next role, show, or audition song should be… now’s the time to put it to video and share it with the world – while keeping your social distance – to help others AND yourself! Whether you want to revisit your favorite show at The Barn, sing or play something you’ve always wanted the world to see, or take the advice of your Facebook friends and run with it – we want your (up to) 3-minute videos!

All members of The Barn Players family are encouraged to participate. At this time we plan to use any and all submissions received within the deadline. Crush Media will compile them into episodes for all to view on a pay-what-you-can-donation basis. Money raised per episode will then be split between The Barn, The Arts Asylum, Crush Media, and all participants. This way, maybe we can help keep everyone’s lights on in a such a dark time.

Submissions will be accepted from now until Friday, March 27th, and we will launch our first episode on Monday, March 30th. Those interested should send their name, preferred pronouns, preferred email, and phone number to for more information on how to submit.

The Barn Players is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that welcomes and values all forms of diversity as they  strive to better represent the performing arts community in Kansas City. Non-traditional and color conscious casting are encouraged.
