One-woman musical shows
Libraries, Museums and Historical Associations
Barbara Weikamp has performed from coast to coast. Born and raised outside of Cleveland, Barb was a performing arts major at Baldwin Wallace College. After college she pursued a show business career that led her to the Burt Reynolds Theatre, The Carousel Dinner Theatre, Theatre by the Sea, the Great Lakes Shakespeare Festival and Walt Disney World’s Hoop Dee Doo Revue. She spent six years doing various shows on cruise ships in the Caribbean, Alaska, Mexico and Hawaii. She also spent 10 years teaching voice and acting at The Community Conservatory of Music in her current hometown of Doylestown, Pennsylvania.
Barbara now produces, writes, and directs one-woman shows that entertain audiences through song, storytelling, and humor. As an actress and performance artist, Barbara brings her characters to life in full costume. All shows feature her husband Nick Dunn as Master of Ceremonies.
Some of Barbara’s programs include:
The Fabulous Females of Broadway
A true performance chameleon, Barbara brings to life many of Broadway’s favorite female characters including Annie Oakley (Annie Get Your Gun), Eliza Doolittle (My Fair Lady), Eva Peron (Evita), and Adelaide (Guys and Dolls). Enjoy many of your all-time favorite tunes in one delightful, fully costumed show.
Memories of the Night
This musical journey pays tribute to beloved superstars who left us too young, including Elvis, Bobby Darin, Mama Cass, Karen Carpenter, Janis Joplin, Patsy Cline, John Denver and more. Barbara brings her powerful voice and humorous touch to this nostalgic trip down memory lane.
A Tribute to our Neighbor Oscar Hammerstein
Barbara pays homage to Bucks County’s famous Broadway lyricist, Oscar Hammerstein, by performing popular selections from Oklahoma, The Sound of Music, South Pacific, Carousel and The King and I. She and her husband Nick Dunn, who serves as Master of Ceremonies, also share stories from their own histories in the community—including Nick’s childhood years as Mr. Hammerstein’s paperboy!
Ed Sullivan’s Holiday Celebrity Show
Barbara pays tribute to some of the most famous holiday songs and the celebrities that made them their own, including Bing Crosby, Judy Garland, Brenda Lee, Elvis, Gene Autry, Karen Carpenter and more. Nick Dunn a la “Ed Sullivan” hosts the show!
Barbara can also create a customized show for your particular function.
“Aided ably by her husband, Nick Dunn, as narrator and master of ceremonies, her show thrilled a sell-out audience at our Bucks County Cabaret. The show was a complete success due to the aid and promotion of On Demand! Programs and Events. Thank you, Natalie Kaye, for bringing Barbara and Nick to our venue!”
— Tom Orr, Producer of the Bucks County Cabaret
“Barbara is fabulous! The tunes are familiar, so the audience loves to listen and hum along.
Her costumes changes are delightful. I highly recommend her.”
— Chris White, Salem UCC 60+ Senior Group Planner
