PARIS — Celebration Barn Theater kicks off its 2019 season at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, June 1, with a presentation of Mike Miclon’s “The Early Evening Show,” featuring Grammy-nominated spoken word artist Milbre Burch, Cirque du Soleil juggler and “master of modern vaudeville” Thom Wall, and Early Evening Show regulars Fritz Grobe and the Early Evening Show Orchestra.

A late-night TV show spoof, the show’s surprise guests, wild improvisations and audience interactions have made it the longest-running live variety show in Maine history. The Bangor Daily News called it, “a seamless, hilarious production,” and CBS Sunday Morning called it, “must-see reality.”

Audience members are encouraged to become Celebration Barn Members, which entitles them to priority seating all season and a post-show champagne toast following the opening performance.
