The Bar Stools
The Bar Stools began as a prank in 1997 during the York County Bar Associations's annual meeting. Tom O'Shea wrote a short piece spoofing many of our judges. The spoof was considered in such bad taste that it was immediately expanded to the stage at York Little Theatre. That initial performance took place in May, 1999 to rave reviews.
Today, the Bar Stools
are a group of theatricly inclined lawyers who continue to perform biannual musicals at York Little Theatre
to sell out houses. We have also performed specially at the Strand-Capital and the Valencia. The shows are a Capital Steps like parody of current events in York County.
Written and produced by our own Tom O'Shea, the shows involve over 50 lawyers and demonstrate the humorous side of lawyering. Proceeds benefit the York County Bar Foundation
which is a prime supporter of Mid Penn Legal Services
and which provides Grants
to legal related causes. Never giving up an opportunity to make fools of themselves, the Bar Stools'
next performance will be an entirely new show in 2009.
