There’s ALWAYS something exciting happening at Barrington’s White House and their calendar of cultural events features some great experiences to be enjoyed by the community this month. In fact, due to a SOLD OUT showing of Ron Keaton as Churchill, they’ve added an extra performance to meet demand!
What I love most about the White House is how the historical venue draws world-class performers right to Barrington’s Main Street. In addition to setting the stage for private events of all kinds, the White House hosts remarkable community events featuring musicians, artists, workshops, demonstrations and so much more.
Here’s a closer look at the White House Happenings for October…
