Contact us about volunteering. Many talents and skills are needed at the Barn. Every season we need behind-the-scenes help: tech volunteers for light and sound, musicians, stage hands, and more. Some positions offer a small stipend. We also have board positions become available as members reach term limits.
We do more than stage plays.
We produce radio theatre during the winter months.

The Barn is a non-profit theatre
The mission of the Maplewood Barn Association is to provide high quality, live community theatre to mid-Missouri audiences in an informal, family friendly, outdoor setting in historic Nifong Park. The purpose and mission have remained unchanged since the theatre’s founding as a City-sponsored initiative in 1973.
