Committed to the education and training of future generations, Barter Theatre, a professional LORTD Equity company, aids in the operation of the Emory & Henry College Theatre Department, in Emory, Virginia, 10 minutes from Barter Theatre. This association offers theatre majors opportunities for professional internships, mentoring, workshops, and master classes throughout their college career. Barter staff members and artists often serve as adjunct faculty and guest artists in the Theatre Department.
In addition, E&H theatre majors have the opportunity to attend professional rehearsals, participate in “talk backs” with the actors and crew after Barter performances, and serve as understudies in Barter Theatre productions. With this partnership, Emory & Henry Theatre Department offers students the combined strengths of a small liberal arts college and the type of pre-professional experiences often found only in large conservatories.
