Packing The House In Grants Pass


With a title like "Urinetown," a theater group had better be prepared to convince audience members that they made the right choice. 

No trepidation there for the leaders of Barnstormers Theatre in Grants Pass. 

The group claims to be Oregon's oldest continuous community theatre, making crowds laugh and cry since 1952.  Theatre manager Wayd Drake--the only paid staffer--and "Urinetown" director Davey Kashuba visit with details of company and show.
