OUR HISTORY

Barn Lot Theater began in the summer of 1980 as an outdoor theater in what is now Bowling Park. With the addition of the gym at the park, Barn Lot began presenting plays year round. In 1991 the old Ford Garage was purchased and renovations began to turn it into a performing arts theater. The first play presented in the new building was in 1993. In 1999 the decision was made to hire a staff and operate with a prescheduled season of shows. In 2020, Barn Lot purchased the former TOPPS factory building next door with plans to renovate it into a larger theater space.
