      One of the nation's oldest professional theatres, Barter opened its doors in 1933. It acquired its name because during the Great Depression, patrons who could not afford to buy tickets were admitted in exchange for donating food. With notable alumni including Gregory Peck, Ernest Borgnine and Kevin Spacey, Barter has a rich tradition of providing top notch theatre in a historic venue.
