World Class Theatre


You are infusing stability into our community of talented actors!

I no longer have to search for my next gig, never truly enjoying the present and living in the moment, but always having to look ahead. You don’t know what it means to be rooted in a community full time to hone my craft portraying different and challenging roles.”

~ Barter Resident Actor
