Barter Theatre is a professional, non-profit repertory theatre located in Abingdon, Va.
All classes are taught by Barter professionals, and those offered in Blowing Rock at this time are designed for three different age groups: Ages 4-7, ages 8-12 and ages 12-18. Enrollments are now being accepted for classes offered the week of July 18 through July 22 at the Hayes Performing Arts Center.

"Many of our patrons come from eastern North Carolina, and when we have open auditions for children, many of our youth actors come from North Carolina," said Karen Sabo, director of education at Barter Theatre. "Education is a big part of Barter Theatre's mission and as a proponent of performing arts in the region, and we want to offer this special opportunity to children in North Carolina.

"The skills picked up can be helpful in community theater, church productions, as well as in school theater. Even if your child is not interested at this time in pursuing acting, the classes are fun, teach self-esteem, foster creativity and encourage listening."

For more information and to enroll, contact Karen Sabo at (education@bartertheatre.com) , call (276) 619-3344 or visit http://www.BarterTheatre.com and click on Young Audiences and then Classes and Workshops.
