Here is the Theatre when it was founded in 1933.
The Barter Theatre is the State Theatre of Virginia. The Barter was the idea of Robert Porterfield, who during the Great Depression, returned to southwest Virginia with an inspiration to bring theatre to the region. The Barter Theatre opened its doors on June 10, 1933. The price of admission was 40 cents or 40 cents worth of produce. The local farmers could "barter" their way in to see the show. Today the Barter Theatre seats more than 160,000 guests annually.
