Smoking Policy
Please note, while smoking by actors on stage may be appropriate for the accurate portrayal of individual characters or the truthful telling of the story, Barter Theatre does not endorse smoking tobacco. Airflow in the theaters is designed so any smoke produced on stage by our prop herbal cigarettes is immediately filtered out of the building and not recycled into the air.

Late Seating Policy
Barter shows begin promptly at the announced times. To avoid interrupting the experience of fellow audience members, patrons arriving late to a performance will be seated in the most convenient location at the discretion of House Management.

Return Seating Policy
In order to avoid interrupting the experience of fellow audience members, a patron leaving his/her seat during a performance will be re-seated in the most convenient location at the discretion of House Management.

We're committed to making productions accessible and enjoyable for everyone. A hearing loop has been installed in Barter's Gilliam Stage and Barter Stage II to assist those with hearing aids or cochlear implants equipped with Telecoils. By request, FM Phonic headphones are also available for those hard of hearing.

Inclement Weather
Barter Theatre performances are never canceled due to weather conditions. The plays will be presented on schedule, not to be delayed by rain, sleet or snow.
