America's Longest Running Dinner Theatre
Conceived in the early 60’s, The Barn Dinner Theatre in Greensboro was the second location of what eventually became 27 in the chain during its heyday.
The shows were cast in New York, then the cast would travel from one Barn Dinner Theatre to the next performing each show, as far as Texas & New Mexico. To accommodate the actors, each theatre had, as we still do here, living quarters upstairs. These included kitchens, showers, and bedrooms.
Occasionally cast members still reside on the property during the run of a show. The casts in the early days actually waited on the tables, then rushed to get ready for the show. Our staff & casts today are grateful this is not still the case!
As the decades went by, many of the locations were closed or sold off. Today this location in Greensboro is the only remaining property from the original chain.
