CASSOPOLIS-- It is time for the annual "Barn Jam," which showcases the area's talented residents.
The fourth annual fund raising variety talent show is put on by members of the Barn Swallow Board of Governors will be held on Saturday, Sept. 13 at 8 p.m. at the Barn Swallow Theatre on Hospital Street, between Edwardsburg and Cassopolis.
Funds raised will support the non-profit community theatre. Acts will include dance, singing, instrumentals, poetry, solos, comedy, and skits.
The Lighthouse Connection Barbershop Quartet will also perform.
Many of those who will be on stage during the Jamboree are Barn Swallow alumni, having performed during the last 19 years.
Included in the show will be Seyhan Kilic, JoAnn Boepple, Lindsay Lehman, Laura L. Maddox, Roy E. Cripe, Tom Rae, Dan Knuth, Jay Wort, Dave Hibinger, Merrill Clark, Kevin Lockhart, Nathan Smith, Noel Britenbach, LaNae Yager, Sue Decker, MaryAnn Grile, Robin Marie Blume, Carol Senger and Virginia Mills.

Lights and sound are being controlled by Pam Boepple. The production is directed by Bev Smith.
A special feature of the Jamboree is the pie auction -- all home-made by Barn Swallow members. All proceeds go to a good cause.
With so much of today's entertainment culture processed and digitized, Barn volunteers encourage everyone to come out and see and experience live theatre.
Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for school age children. For reservations call Marj Federowski at (269) 445-0016.
