ABINGDON, Va. -

If your child has shown an interest in performing, the Barter Theatre is trying to make it easier for them to give it a try.

Registration is now open for the 2014 Barter Youth Academy Workshops. Kids can learn all about how a production makes it to the stage, from the auditions all the way to an actual show performed for family and friends.

This year they're making it easier for children to participate by adding workshops in locations across the region. We're told the expansion is necessary due to its popularity.
