Enjoy festivities in the Antique Barn at Cashel: the best of the old and new. Located in the beautiful Amwell Valley, Cashel is an old farmstead that dates to the mid 1850’s.

This laugh-out-loud musical is the story of scheming producer Max Bialystock and his mousy accountant Leo Bloom.

This side-splitting tour-de-force spoofs grand, old-fashioned Broadway musicals while paying tribute to them all at the same time.
