The Maplewood Senior Troupe Presents The Storm in the Barn May 2nd-4th


Poster designed by Dan Schmidt


Oddfellows Playhouse Maplewood Senior Troupe is staging Matt Phelan’s novel The Storm in the Barn next month. The production will run May 2 - 4 at 7 pm at Oddfellows Playhouse, located at 128 Washington Street in Middletown. 

The Storm in the Barn is a tale of a farming family struggling to survive the Dust Bowl and the Great Depression. Jack, our young hero, discovers that the disappearance of the rain may not be of normal circumstances, but something much more sinister and supernatural. He must face his fears and find confidence within himself to save not only his family, but perhaps the world. This production of The Storm in the Barn is brought to life by a cast of 7 young actors, ages 11 -16. 


Directed by Allegra Green and Jakeis Jenkins, The Storm in the Barn features scenic design by Dan Schmidt, costume design by Christian Milik, lighting design by Aaron Westcott, sound design by Trey Moore, properties design by Pam Lang, and technical direction by Myke Halpin. The dramatic adaptation was written by Eric Coble. The Storm in the Barn is produced by special arrangement with THE DRAMATIC PUBLISHING COMPANY of Woodstock, Illinois.

Performances will be at 7 pm on May 2  - 4. Tickets for The Storm in the Barn are $5 for students and $10 for adults. “Big Heart” tickets for $25 are available for anyone wanting to support Oddfellows’ work with young people, the arts and social justice. Tickets may be purchased at
