About the Ridgefield Theater Barn 

Housed in a rustic converted dairy barn leased from the town of Ridgefield, the Ridgefield Theater Barn produces an ongoing series of comedies, dramas, and musicals. We maintain a production schedule of four shows per year, with performers chosen through open auditions. The cast and crew of every show run the gamut from raw amateurs to seasoned professionals.

Most of our theatrical performances are cabaret style - bring your own food and beverages to consume before the show. Other events, such as play readings and Theater Barn Kids shows, typically employ theater style seating.

All participants, whether on stage or off, are volunteers. We are actors, dancers, musicians, seamstresses, carpenters, singers, electricians, and individuals who just offer willing pairs of hands to do anything from painting scenery to taking tickets at the door. Our compensation comes in the form of good times, camaraderie, and the satisfaction gained from learning new things, being part of a team, and staging a quality production.
