Between Kalamazoo and Battle Creek near Agusta, it is hard to miss this barn with gold-colored lettering painted on the roof. The Barn Theatre was originally constructed in 1943 by Robert M. Cook as a dairy barn. in 1946 when Jack Ragotzy, Betty Ebert founded the Village Players and a few years later purchased the barn to use as a theater. It is Michigan’s oldest resident summer stock theatre. Such theatres use a group of actors who perform consecutive productions of different shows. The company has performed over 300 plays and musicals and played to over one million patrons.
