Fantastic historic theatre - has a main stage & a smaller theatre across the street (Barter II). The productions are high quality and ticket prices are quite reasonable. Free easy parking.

The Barter Theatre has done it once again! We just saw a production of A Southern Fried Funeral and it was hilarious. We enjoy all of the productions we see at the Barter and this one was no exception. Locals as well as people from far and wide come to see plays at this nationally known theatre where actors like Gregory Peck got their start. If you are in the area, do not miss the opportunity to see a production on their main stage or their two smaller venues. Abingdon is a charming, historic town and makes for a great get away with the bonus of this theatre.

The MOST amazing theater I've ever been to! I used to live in this town during high school and would go all the time. I moved away for college and work but now live about 2.5 hours away. I make monthly trips to see plays here! I've started taking people with me and everyone loves it!! I highly recommend this theater to all ages!

Always a cut above the rest, "Southern Fried Funeral" was a "hoot and a half." Great show and thanks to the staff for a wonderful theatre experience.

Every play that we have seen at the Barter Theatre has been very good. It is very enjoyable and entertaining. Live actors kept our attention and was a welcomed break from just going to a movie.
