The classic tale of love, adventure and magic that has wowed audiences for decades is gracing Barter Stage II this summer.
The Barter Players are bringing “Cinderella,” originally written by the Brothers Grimm, to an all-new ball that runs through July 15.
Join Zoe Velling, Brandy Drzymkowski, Garret Housten and the rest of the Barter Players as they present the story of Cinderella, a girl doomed to act as a slave to her evil stepsisters and wicked stepmother until a ball and a fairy godmother present her with a chance at a new life and love.
Special thanks to our sponsor, Pepsi Beverages Company, for making “Cinderalla” possible at Barter Theatre.

Barter Theatre, the nation’s longest running professional theatre, is located in Abingdon, Virginia. The theatre opened in 1933 during the Great Depression. Founder Robert Porterfield offered patrons admission to the theatre by bartering food and livestock. Barter Theatre was designated as the state theatre of Virginia in 1946. It exists today as one of the last year-round professional resident repertory theaters remaining in the United States. Barter Theatre is funded in part by The Virginia Commission for the Arts and The National Endowment for the Arts.
