The Barn Theatre School for Advanced Theatre Training promotes the concept that theatre artists, performers, designers, technicians, stage managers, directors, and art managers should have broadly based theatre exposure and experience. The school believes the exposure and experience gained as an Apprentice are the heart of an appreciative and creative relationship and comprise the core disciplines of any theatrical endeavor.

Love this unique venue! Small but mighty! The rehearsal shed and coke barn always have a line (that moves very quick) but the new Saloon was quick to grab a drink at intermission with no line! Fun to have the stars of the show be who serves you

Escanaba in Da Moonlight was such an awesome, hilarious show. It's always a fun, entertaining time at the Barn Theatre. Staff are all fun and friendly, not a bad seat in the house. Be sure to visit the Shed before or after the show for a snack or cocktail.

We went to Rock of Ages on the night the power went out. They didn't miss a beat and the performance was even better because of how wonderfully they responded. Bravo!!!

What’s not to love about The Barn? I didn’t attend a show until a few years after I moved to Kalamazoo. I attended my first show a few years ago with some friends and have been to several more since. They always have a number of interesting shows as part of each season (even if not everything catches your interest). Have been to three shows this summer. Historic venue, great history of famous actors training at The Barn and excellent atmosphere. Would highly recommend!

A wonderful theater, 75 years of great entertainment. Just saw Rocky Horror Show, great interactive experience. If you enjoy live theater or have never been this is a must.

Been coming here for years and it just keeps getting better with the extras they do like the Pizza oven and park like setting at the side of entrance that you can grab a beer/wine from the new bar and sit for the show to start. The seats have more leg room now and the AC is strong on those warm nights. Also go to the bar show after main show! A great night of live entertainment.
