The Barn Dinner Theatre
The Barn Dinner Theatre is one of many "dinner theatres" established in the 1960s by Howard D. Wolfe and Conley Jones Sr. The Barn Dinner Theatre in Greensboro opened in 1964. In the beginning, many of the wait staff were also castmates in the production that occurred after dinner. The cast of these productions would often live upstairs of the facility for the duration of their show's run. Those rooms have transformed into The Barn Dinner Theatre's box office, dressing rooms, and green room. As of 2022, The Barn Dinner Theatre is America's longest-continuously run dinner theatre.

The stage is an 18 by 18 ft square stage that raises and lowers on a hydraulic lift. The stage is lowered after dinner before the production begins.
