BARN COMMUNITY THEATER
The entire operation was moved temporarily to the auditorium of SACRED HEART SCHOOL. Marquette Hall was refurbished into a theater superior to the Barn with thousands of dollars and hours of volunteer labor. The first production in the new theater was "Once Upon A Mattress."
The purchase of the GRAND OPERA HOUSE on August 1, 1986, for $85,000 provided the theater company the unique potential of having a permanent location for expanded programming. The company presented "You're a Good Man Charlie Brown" on August 15, 1986, as its first production in its permanent home.
