Barter Theatre Partnership
We share a unique partnership with the Barter Theatre– the state theatre of Virginia–extending real professional theatre training and connections for all students!
This formal partnership allows Emory & Henry theatre students to become acquainted with the Barter players, company, and cast members. The partnership allows for theatre students at Emory & Henry to gain experience in the professional theatre world before graduating and seeking jobs in the theatre profession.
In addition, students have the opportunity to:
- gain access to Barter Theatre internships
- attend up to ten Barter productions a year
- attend the actor talk-backs following each show
- observe the everyday working of the theatre from production to rehearsals
- participate in masterclasses and workshops
- mentorships based on your interest to learn one-on-one from a Barter professional
- personalized auditions
Several company and cast members from the Barter Theatre teach academic courses for Emory & Henry College providing a hands-on opportunity for learning as well.
