PARIS — Celebration Barn Theater opens its 46th season with Mike Miclon’s The Early Evening Show, on Saturday, June 3 at 7:30 p.m.

The show features special guests Jan Damm and Ariele Ebacher, along with Early Evening Show regulars Fritz Grobe, Tom Murphy, and the Early Evening Show Orchestra.

Performed from Maine to Switzerland, The Early Evening Show, a spoof of late-night talk shows, built its reputation with a 14-year run at the Oddfellow Theater in Buckfield.

Ariele and Jan’s performances blend juggling, dance, bottle-walking, manipulation, equilibrism, and acrobatics. Jan performed in New York as the lead character in Cirque Mechanics’ Pedal Punk and has appeared on the Late Show with David Letterman.

The Early Evening Show’s wild improvisations, surprise guests and audience interactions have made it the one of the longest-running live variety show in Maine.

Tickets to the show are $15 for adults, $13 for seniors (60-plus), and $10 for kids (17 and under). All tickets are general admission, with members receiving priority seating. Lobby and concessions open at 6:30 p.m. Purchasing tickets in advance is strongly recommended.

For more information, visit or call the box office at 207-743-8452. Celebration Barn Theater is located just off Route 117 at 190 Stock Farm Road in Paris.
