Barter doffs ‘Hat’ preem

Tuner to preem in August

Barter Theater in Abingdon, Va., will preem tuner “Hats! The Red Hat Society Musical” in August.

A team of composers and lyricists — including Henry Krieger (“Dreamgirls”) and Susan Birkenhead (“Jelly’s Last Jam”) — will write the songs, with a book by husband-wife scribes Marcia Milgrom Dodge and Anthony Dodge.

Inspiration for the production is the Red Hat Society, a fun-loving worldwide org for women over 50.

Sibling Entertainment produces the show, which runs at the Barter Aug. 18-Sept. 17.
