Barter Theatre

“Undoubtedly, the funniest, wittiest show ever done by Barter Theatre.”


Book, Music and Lyrics by Ross Carter

It’s l’amour, y’all! Country music meets opera in the most unlikely, unbelievable and undoubtedly one of the most popular plays to ever come through Barter’s Appalachian Festival of Plays and Playwrights. Carly, a struggling opera singer, has a dream: to sing the lead in Carmen. Her agent thinks she’s found the answer! But Carly finds herself singing at the West Virginia state fair with a country music band call The Car Men – Agents clash, everyone panics, and the singers erupt at the worst possible moments in one of the funniest musicals you will ever experience.
