The Hard Bargain Players are pleased to announce our 2013 season. As is our tradition at Hard Bargain we again feature plays that are off the beaten path, plays that ask questions and allow our patrons to come up with the answers. Performances will be held at the Theatre in the Woods unless otherwise noted.
Plays are subject to change based on availability of royalties and other factors beyond our control.
Theater in the Woods is an outdoor amphitheater and the Hard Bargain Players perform rain or shine. Shows are only canceled in the event of severe weather conditions. There is limited covered seating and umbrellas are encouraged. Comfortable clothing and bug spray are also highly recommended.
Making a reservation is as easy as sending an email to email@example.com Please be sure to include the show, date of performance, and number of tickets you are reserving.
