NASHVILLE, Tennessee —Nashville’s popular dinner theater Chaffin’s Barn showcased its newly renovated facilities on Aug. 2 with a performance of the popular musical “Sister Act.”
The 53-year-old building received a major facelift over the spring and summer, including a new roof, new carpeting, all new restrooms, a newly paved parking lot with additional handicap spaces and changes to the lobby and mainstage theater.
Norma Luther, who purchased the theater in January 2017 from the Chaffin family, said, “Any building that is 53 years old needs a tune up. Our slogan when I took over was ‘the next 50 years,’ so it was only natural to add a new roof, carpet and related repairs.”
“Sister Act” ran through Aug. 25 and will be followed by Disney’s “Newsies” Sept. 20-Oct. 27 and “Elf the Musical” for the holidays Nov. 15-Dec. 29.
Chaffin’s also announced it will open a new restaurant, Chaffin’s Station, in Bellevue, Tennessee, in mid-September or early October in a former Applebee’s.
