I have been working with Hillbarn Theatre as their photographer for about 5 years now and have seen a dramatic change in both the staff and the facilities over that time and so much for the better. Gone are the old bathrooms and the Artistic Director who constantly asked for money. They completed a lobby overhaul in addition to the bathrooms and have plans for further renovations.

The artistic vision for the theatre has grown by leaps and bounds over the last 4 years as well, bringing in even more talent in the form of actors and creatives who want to work there. The new AD continues to push what he can do with such an intimate space. Every aspect of the productions has improved from sound and light to sets and costumes which elevates the patrons experience. I suggest to the previous reviewers to take another look at this little gem of a theatre company on the peninsula.

A gem of a building. Intimate seating, close to the stage action. But the place is in distress. The buikding is old and in need of real overhaul. It is dirty, not maintained and smells like septic in the ladies room/lobby. I recently was made aware that the staff has changed again. It seems that Hillbarn is not good at keeping staff, lots of changes and the most recent staff change has hurt the organization. The shows are fair to good, but the current season is drab. Prices are too expensive for the quality of work that they actually are producing.

As an actress in Peninsula theaters, I appreciate the "family feeling" I experience at Hillbarn Theatre. The staff, directors, technical personnel, and actors all care deeply about providing excellent entertainment and about one another. This attitude comes through in every production I've seen and participated in at Hillbarn!
