Nighttime View Of The Barter Theatre
Historic Abingdon, Virginia
has lots of wonderful places to visit, and perhaps the most popular of all of
them is the Barter
Theatre. Ever since the Barter Theatre was designated the State Theatre Of
Virginia way back in 1946, people have visited Abingdon from far and wide
just to take in a performance from her world-famous stage.
Enjoying a play at the Barter is a very special event for several reasons. One
of the first things you'll see when you enter the front door is a display of
photographs featuring all of the famous Barter alumni who have went on to become
stars of stage and screen after getting their start on the Barter stage. An
overwhelming sense of history strikes everyone who sees them.
Another thing that makes a performance at the Barter Theatre so special is the
way the seating is arranged...you feel close to the stage regardless of where
you happen to be sitting! Even though the Barter's capacity is around 200
people, it seems as if you're enjoying the play with just a few close friends in
an intimate setting! In a nutshell, you'll be hard-pressed to find a more
enjoyable atmosphere in which to take in a play!
And finally there are the wonderful actors who bring the shows to life day after
day, giving each polished performance as if the show will be performed only
once. Consummate professionals all, the men and women who grace the Barter
Theatre stage are world-class actors who love what they do and do it extremely
The next time you find yourself looking for an exciting way to spend an
afternoon or evening, why not visit historic Barter Theatre? Better yet, a
vacation would allow you to experience all the wonderful places and things
this beautiful and historic town has to offer!
