Just passing through Abingdon and the AAA book mentioned the Barter Theater. Thought we'd check it out and were pleasantly surprised. Bought tickets for "The Three Musketeers" showing that evening and we enjoyed ourselves immensely. Great talent, great little theater and friendly staff.

We recently visited the Barter for "The Three Musketeers". We thoroughly enjoyed the show. Kate, in group sales, was great to work with our group. Looking forward to our next trip to the Barter.
