What time should I arrive?
We open the doors to the theatre 30 minutes prior to the show’s start time, so you can nd your seat as early as 30 minutes before show time. We encourage you to arrive with plenty of time for parking, as we have limited space. If you are late for the show, ushers will seat you in the most convenient location, at a respectful time during the show.
Do you have a gift shop and concessions?
Yes, we have gift shops and light concessions at both Gilliam Stage and Barter Stage II. The shops are a great place to pick up Barter Theatre apparel, Abingdon souvenirs, or show memorabilia. They also feature unique and affordable costume jewelry from all over the world. Gift certificates and gift baskets are available as well.
What should I wear?
Barter Theatre does not have a dress code, but many patrons choose to dress business casual. We encourage you to dress for the occasion, whatever celebration or night out you may be enjoying, but we want your experience to be comfortable.
Can I take photos and video during the show?
Due to U.S. copyright laws, use of photography, video and other recording devices are strictly prohibited during all performances at Barter Theatre. We encourage you to take photos before and after the show and tag us on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter @bartertheatre and use #bartertheatre.
