Dinner and a show!  Join the cast/crew of this year’s blockbuster sci-fi vampire romance The Dark Edge of Dawn as they drop in to Greene Eagle Winery to unwind after a grueling cross country tour.  Tensions run high as they grate on each other, tired of spending so much time together, tired of being on the road, tired of each other’s foibles and just plain tired! How long before someone snaps?  Who will snap first?


SPECIAL PERFORMANCE!!

April 27th at 7pm

KEN BARNETT’S ONE MAN SHOW

ADMISSION $10

ONLINE RESERVATIONS AVAILABLE NOW!

Ken Barnett as  Mark Twain and Red Skelton

In August of 1977. Ken Barnett first took the stage in Mount Gilead, Ohio as Mark Twain.  Drawing his program from the written works of Twain, as well as the stage work of Hal Holbrook, Ken performed his first presentation of An Evening with Mark Twain. Now, after more than forty years and over two hundred performances which saw him travel as close as TNT’s stage in Warren to distant venues in Chicago and St. Louis, Barnett once again will be taking the stage at Trumbull New Theater.

The wit, wisdom, irony, humor and often sarcasm that are the hallmark of Twain’s writings are the stuff upon which Barnett draws to bring the life and times of America’s first celebrity and greatest author to life. Complete with the trademark white suit and matching tosseled white hair, Barnett sprinkles his performance with laughter, pointed political commentary, and poignant storytelling.  Barnett has amassed over two hours of material from which he creates a unique performance each time he takes the stage.

In 2010, Barnett became acquainted with Mike Petee, the creator of the Mount Vernon Ohio Chautauqua series.  Soon thereafter, Petee persuaded Barnett to bring his show, now titled The World According to Mark Twain, to the stage of the historic Woodward Opera House.  The result was an evening that marked the beginning of a wonderfully creative relationship between the two men. The next year, Petee asked Barnett to create new presentations depicting other famous deceased personalities.  Barnett jumped at the chance, and the next year, Barnett first performed as the late Red Skelton in The Many Shades of Red.  The second half of the show at TNT will feature the works of Red Skelton!

During the forty-five minute performance, Barnett presents Red Skelton as audiences may remember him form his long-running television show.  Audiences will see such famous Skelton characters as Clem Cadiddlehopper, George Appleby, and, of course, Freddy the Freeloader!  Interspersed throughout the show are Skelton’s famous pantomimes and jokes from Gertrude and Heathcliff, two seagulls.

The stage at TNT was like a second home for Barnett as he is eagerly looking forward to returning to the stage of TNT where he directed the first show of his career, the award-winning 1776.
