The Old Man has kept his post as the sole caretaker of the moon for as long as he or his wife, the Old Woman, can remember. When she is drawn away by a mysterious melody sparking memories of their shared past, the Old Man must decide between duty and routine, and love and adventure.
Luckily for audiences everywhere, he chooses the latter, and what follows is an imaginative sea-faring epic, encompassing apocalyptic storms, civil wars, leviathans of the deep, and cantankerous ghosts, as well as the fiercest obstacle of all: change.
"This is a story of time and tides and quests, the sort of fable on which mythologies and religions are founded . . . asks us to appreciate the finer arts of wild storytelling, while speaking to the childish mind in all of us." – The New York Times
Tickets: Students 12, members $20, non-members $22

Americana / Folk with Swedish Roots
Unmistakably Nordic in flavor, Sofia Talvik somehow still conforms to American interpretations of her own original music, a North Sea siren blending sparkle and melancholy, creating a special niche of folk music.

The Book of Mamaw is a one-man show of stories, songs, and sketches about growing up with Bernice Rader, who recognized her two-year-old grandson's love of performing and guided him on his way. Mamaw was a Christian woman. Church of Christ, shapenotes, and Avon. From small town Greeneville, Tennessee to the Sahara Desert, The Book of Mamaw is a musical tale of a surprising spiritual path of kindness and compassion.
Eugene Wolf has been a member of the resident acting company at the historic Barter Theatre for over 22 years. Before that he spent 16 years as a member of Johnson City's professional theater, The Road Company. He created the role of A. P. Carter in Barter's "Keep On The Sunny Side" and appeared as A. P. on PBS and the BBC. Along with Ed Snodderly, he is a singer with the Brother Boys, and he has appeared on recordings alongside Dolly Parton and Alison Krauss.
In 2013 he traveled to Russia to record "Where We'll Never Grow Old," a collection of 19th and early 20th century American spirituals and hymns. The album was produced by Russian folk artist, Mitya Kuznetsov. Eugene is the host of WEHC FM's "What In The World," a weekly radio show that features current melodies and rhythms of this world.
The Book of Mamaw is a heart-warming, laugh inducing, tear jerking story of one boy's love for his grandmother, and how that love shaped and changed his life. Eugene Wolf takes his life story, sets it to the music he grew up loving, and creates something that not only makes you laugh, smile, and feel good, but renews your faith in people and your hope for the future of society. - Melanie Weir, ALL ABOUT SOLO

Prospero, the former and rightful Duke of Milan, washed up on the shores of this island with his daughter, Miranda, many years ago. On this day, Prospero uses his magic and the powers of his spirit-servant, Ariel, to conjure a storm, the tempest, to shipwreck a passing vessel.
Aboard this wrecked ship is a group of royals: Alonso, the King of Naples; his son Ferdinand, the prince; his treacherous brother, Sebastian; and Prospero's treacherous brother, Antonio, among other nobles and mariners.
In this tale of magic, betrayal, revenge, and family, Prospero uses his learned sorcery to trick and trial the stranded sea voyagers, in the hopes that he will be avenged for these years of forced exile. Meanwhile, Prospero's slave, Caliban, forms alliances with Stephano and Trinculo, a drunken clown and fool, respectively, to try to rid himself of his master.
On another part of the island, Ferdinand and Miranda meet and begin to fall in love. All must come to terms with the past if peace and love are to reign in this brave new world.

Annie Nations, an indomitable Appalachian widow of 79, lives on her mountain farm with the acerbic ghost of her husband, Hector. Her tranquility is threatened by a brash real estate developer who wants to turn her land into a vacation resort and by concern over her son, Dillard, a country singer who has come home with two stranded children because his wife has run away.
Annie's battle to decide her future takes her through some funny, touching, and magical flashbacks to her life with Hector. Played on Broadway by Hume Cronyn and Jessica Tandy, this couple offers a staunchly affirmative tribute to country folk.
"The play quivers with laughter and stabs the heart." - Time
