An Aurora Theatre Streaming Event
Barbara’s Blue Kitchen
Sep 25, 2020-Oct 10, 2020
A Country Fried Musical by Lori Fischer
Directed by Justin Anderson
Musical Direction by Ann-Carol Pence
Barbara Jean owns the diner that is the epicenter of life, love and gossip in Watertown, a small town just outside of Nashville. This musical serves up a slice of small town southern life with a heaping helping of comedy. At Barbara’s Blue Kitchen the special of the day is a genuine look into the hearts of everyday people. The trials and tribulations of a weary nurse, an elderly widow, an overwhelmed mother of three boys, a heartbroken waitress and the topsy-turvy love life of Barbara Jean play out like a country song. The show will star WatersEdge Records recording artist and Aurora Theatre AppCo Alumni Chloe Kay.
Cost: from $30 per streaming view
Approximate Running Time: 75 minutes
Our Stage On Screen brings the theatre to you!
The quality and excellence that Aurora Theatre brings to live performances are coming to your home screen. We created a sound stage in our Studio theatre by removing all of the seating. We assembled the actors, musicians, a director and a small film crew, safely distanced and with health precautions. The filmed performance will then be available for your enjoyment at the time of your choosing.
Like theatre tickets, your purchase is valid for one viewing. Unlike live performances, you don’t need to buy tickets for everyone or worry about getting bad seats. It’s your house so you get the best seats every time. You schedule the best time for you within the streaming window for your very own private screening of Barbara’s Blue Kitchen.

Closing Night Conversation with Lori Fischer, author of Barbara’s Blue Kitchen
As we wrap up the digital run of Barbara’s Blue Kitchen, we connect with the writer (and original star) of the show, Lori Fischer. She’ll talk about her work as a writer and the inspiration for this show, her love and connection to country music, why jingles are more fun to write than love songs, and why wholeness and healing can be only be found in real community.

I’m a season subscriber and my subscription was converted to a membership, is this included?
It is. Your credits (8 for regular memberships and 10 for Star Pass members) are redeemable for access to limited streaming of Barbara’s Blue Kitchen.
How do I redeem my membership credits?
Click on FOR MEMBERS. This will take you to the Subscriber Portal and a form to fill out. Our Box Office will contact you when the streaming link is available to complete your order.
I am going to watch this with my family of 5, do we need tickets or credits for each of us?
No, with Aurora Theatre’s Our Stage On Screen productions, you only pay for the number of devices you’d like to stream on at the same time. 1 play on 1 device = $30 (or 1 member voucher).
Can I watch it on my Smart TV?
We are working on making the content available through Roku or Amazon Fire for you to easily enjoy on your television.
Why is this show Pay-Per-View, when your other digital shows have been free?
If you’ve seen our Christmas Canteen in July, you’ve seen we are bringing you the quality you’ve come to expect from Aurora Theatre’s productions. We are committed to providing our audience with the best artists we can and this means we have exhausted our ability to offer unlimited free events. We will continue offering free digital content that is smaller in scope.
