A hilarious non-musical comedy that will have you in stitches!
GREENSBORO, NC JANUARY 31 – Kicking off The Barn Dinner Theatre’s 53rd season is the outrageously funny comedy, The Kitchen Witches. Written by Canadian playwright, Caroline Smith and directed by resident director, Matthew C. Bradshaw, The Kitchen Witches is sure to have you in stitches…and that is well before the end of act 1!
Isobel and Dolly are two “mature” cable-access cooking show hostesses who have hated each other for over 30 years. When circumstances put them together on a TV show called The Kitchen Witches, the insults are flung harder than the food. It’s a losing battle on set, but the show becomes a rating smash as Dolly and Isobel top both Martha Stewart and Jerry Springer.
“I haven’t laughed this hard in while”, says Producer, Ric Gutierrez. “This show is definitely an awesome start to our exciting 53rd season”.
The Kitchen Witches summons forth Barn Dinner favorites, Susan L. Jones (as Dolly Biddle) of Greensboro and Andy Schlosberg (as Stephen Biddle) of Winston Salem. Newcomers, April Marshall (as Isobel Lomax) and Avery Wentz-Moore (as Rob) complete this amazing cast. The production crew includes: Ric Gutierrez (Producer), Matthew C. Bradshaw (Director, Technical Director), & Shabaza Vaird (Stage Manager).

Conceived in 1964 by the late Howard Wolfe and Connelly Jones, The Barn Dinner Theatre (Greensboro, NC) and the “dinner theatre” concept, as we have come to know it today, was born. The Greensboro location was the first of a chain of 26 other dinner theatres (with the same name) in the late 1960s. The chain of Barns were union houses back then, under the Actors’ Equity Association, and employed some of the finest Equity Actors from New York including, 2 time Oscar winner, Robert De Niro. It is rumored that Mr. De Niro was fired 3 weeks into his contract because of a “conflict of interest” between him and the director. Over the years, the franchise removed itself from the AEA union and fell apart and the theatres were individually sold. All except the 2 locations in Nashville, TN and Greensboro, NC. In 1997, the Greensboro, NC location changed ownership and is still going strong today, providing year-round “Dinnertainment” to thousands of guests traveling from miles around. We are a proud, long-standing member of The National Dinner Theatre Association, The Better Business Bureau, The Greensboro Chamber of Commerce, The Greensboro Area Convention & Visitors Bureau, and the NC/VA Motorcoach Associations.
Celebrating over 53 years of “Dinnertainment”, The Barn Dinner Theatre in Greensboro, NC is proud to be America’s longest running dinner theatre! Come and be a part of History!
