Since 1933, Barter Theatre has defied the odds as the nation’s longest-running professional theatre, located in Abingdon, VA, in the heart of Appalachia. Barter’s Resident Company employs professional union actors & stage managers year-round. Thanks to Barter, we raise families here, pay taxes, and are committed members of our local community.
But COVID-19 has closed our doors and now our livelihoods are at stake. We created this video ourselves to make sure you don’t forget about us! Please keep the Barter Theatre family in your hearts and minds during this difficult time — and please give what you can to help put us back to work when all this is over!
Together, we can weather this storm!
