We are a full-service event production company with decades of experience in the design & production of large and small scale events. We specialize in theatrically entertaining, historically authentic events, with a talent pool of over 1,000 enthusiastic performers, directors, musicians and designers.
Red Barn Productions and the Patterson family have redefined the concept of environmental theatre and innovated the performance technique of Theatrical Living History. Our evolving process began in 1961 when founders Ron and Phyllis Patterson, an art director and high school English teacher, began to see improvisational theatre as a new way to experience the “aliveness” of history and the arts. The development of our founder’s vision has resulted in decades of highly participatory, historically themed events, where artists, performers, and audience members improvise and engage as characters from other time periods. The lines between past and present, audience and performer, blur giving way to surprising, delightful, and even transformative experiences!
