Why support The Barn Theatre?

“Community theatre enriches the lives of those who take an active part in it, as well as those in the community who benefit from live theatre productions. On either side of the footlights, those involved represent a diversity of age, culture, life experience, and a strong appreciation of the importance of the arts.”

For almost 100 years The Barn Theatre has been an active provider of live theater to audiences in Morris County and surrounding areas. Thousands of volunteer performers, producers, directors, set builders, house managers and others have come through our doors over the decades. Some families have been involved for several generations! Our doors remain open with an invitation to YOU to get involved. Your donation supports all of our program activities and brings The Barn to life!

The Barn Theatre is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization TIN 22-6060836. All donations are tax-deductible to the extent permitted by law.
