The Diamond Anniversary Revue
Celebrating 75 Years of the Forestburgh Playhouse
July 6-11
If this Barn could talk! For 75 years, talented artists have been creating fabulous theatre memories for Playhouse Patrons. It’s time to celebrate the joy and zest of musical theatre in the Forestburgh Playhouse.  In this originally conceived musical revue, you will be treated to some of the best songs and dances from Playhouse history.  Our very talented Resident Company will perform the hits of the Playhouse just for you! With amazing vocals and dazzling choreography, we will celebrate the legacy of the Forestburgh Playhouse together!

Altar Boyz the Musical
July 13-25
Performed on the Playhouse mainstage.
A foot-stomping, rafter-raising musical comedy about a fictitious Christian boy band on the last night of their national “Raise the Praise” tour.  The Boyz are five all-singing, all-dancing heartthrobs from Ohio: Matthew, Mark, Luke, Juan and Abraham! With their tight harmonies and spectacular choreography, the Altar Boyz delight their audience. Performing a full set, the Boyz question their loyalty to each other and ask whether or not faith is really holding them together. In the end, they deliver a message of unity: “there is no star as bright as its constellation, no harmony in a single voice.”

Beehive the Musical
July 13-25
Performed on the Tavern Stage!
BEEHIVE celebrates the powerful female voices of the 1960’s with such timeless hits as “My Boyfriend’s Back”, “Be My Baby”, Son of  Preacher Man”, “Me and Bobby McGee” and so much more! Told from the perspective of six young women who come of age in this enigmatic decade, BEEHIVE takes us down memory lane--you will be singing along and tapping your toes to this iconic music the entire time!
