Barn Arts rock musical to play all summer



BAR HARBOR — The Barn Arts Collective’s immersive family rock musical “The Unknown Adventure Crew” will play at the Criterion Theatre every Thursday at 11 a.m. and every Sunday at 1 p.m. throughout the summer.

The show offers an opportunity to explore the Criterion Theatre through an inventive new show with original music.

“We’ve been developing this piece for almost two years,” said Barn Arts co-producer Brittany Parker. “After workshop productions at the Barn and the Harbor House supported by the Southwest Harbor Library, we’re very excited to have the opportunity to bring a full production to life this summer.”

The show features two intrepid explorers, played by Parker and Barn Arts co-founder Andrew Simon, who are responsible for searching and exploring missions using the “International Network.” “The Unknown Adventure Crew” makes use of detailed projection design on the big screen at the Criterion as well as original rock songs in an immersive production that will lead the audience on a journey of discovery throughout the theater.

The show runs just under an hour. All tickets are $6, with free admission for adults on return visits. Visit www.barnartscollective.com or call 288-0892.
