Audiences have spoken, and Barter Theatre is listening.
Due to high demand for both shows, Barter Theatre has included additional performances for “Footloose: The Musical” and “The Savannah Sipping Society” before they complete their run on Barter stages.
An extra performance of both shows has been added on Wednesday, Aug. 2 at 2 p.m. and on Friday, Aug. 4 at 8 p.m., with an additional performance of Footloose also being added for Wednesday, Aug. 9 at 7:30 p.m.
“We are excited about the opportunity to add performances of these two excellent productions both because of the overwhelming demand for tickets and to make additional $20.00 tickets available,” said Producing Artistic Director Richard Rose. “There are so many folks who want to see these shows a second or even a third time. Or those who would not have been able to see the shows and are now happy to have the chance.”
Barter Theatre recommends anyone interested in taking advantage of these added performances act quickly, before the shows are sold out.

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.
