ABINGDON, Va.- Barter Theatre provides a humorous perspective on the American dream with “The Lemonade Stand” by Matthew Fowler. This side-splitting comedy is the first of the summer season, running through Aug. 11.

Barrett Guyton, director of “The Lemonade Stand,” is adding another hit to his productions at Barter Theatre. This performance features a remarkable cast lineup, starring Sarah Van Deusen, who is returning to the theater after being on tour, and Nicholas Piper, who is a favorite of Barter Theatre patrons for his unforgettable performances.

“The Lemonade Stand” introduces audiences to Garret Miller, a man in modern-day suburbia experiencing a midlife crisis. After losing his job and dealing with his potentially cheating wife and his outcast brother, Garret keeps us laughing as he and Rachel, the girl next door, rediscover the American dream of owning your own business. Director Barrett Guyton explained, “Two people with a vast generational gap between them both find themselves in the midst of an existential crisis. One has aged out of his usefulness, and the other doesn’t yet know what her usefulness is.”

To purchase tickets, visit or call 276-628-3991. Tickets for all performances of “The Lemonade Stand” begin at just $20.
