History

Located in the same facility since 1955, the success of the organization is attributed to the hard work and dedication of its members. Each year, since 1979, special recognition has been paid to a member in the form of the "Samuel C. Mullin Jr., ‘Sammy’ Award" for outstanding service to The Red Barn Players and the performing arts. The award pays tribute to Mullin, who as one of the founding members of The Red Barn Players dedicated 63 years of service to the group.
