The mission of The Barn Stage Company is to preserve, strengthen and advance Musical Theater as a vital social and cultural platform by creating theatrical experiences of the highest professional standards. As both a laboratory for theatrical exploration and a producer of plays that expand the boundaries of theatrical form, The Barn Stage Company supports projects that are aesthetically, thematically and methodologically diverse. With our youthful spirit and eclectic, artist-driven approach, we provide an environment for the growth and education of theatre professionals, audiences and the Temecula Valley community at large.
In May 2012, Writer & Producer Jordan Beck and Director J. Scott Lapp teamed up to present Cabaret at The Merc, a popular concert series taking place in Old Town Temecula on the last Sunday of each month. Over the years they have brought the best of Broadway to Temecula, including evenings with Broadway’s Eden Espinosa, Shoshana Bean, and Grammy award-winning and Tony-nominated composer Stephen Schwartz. With shows also celebrating a wide array of styles ranging between Billy Joel, Elton John, Michael Jackson, Queen, Motown, and The Rat Pack, Cabaret at The Merc quickly became “the best kept secret in Temecula”!
“J. Scott Lapp and Jordan Beck are the fresh faces and voices of the Next Broadway-Generation. We are honored to have such award-winning and acclaimed producers partnering with Temecula Presents to bring East Coast Stars right to our own backyard. We dream big around here and our patrons are the lucky beneficiaries of all the first-rate entertainment and talent that comes through Temecula’s stage stop.” – Bea Barnett
