Since a 2015 storm destroyed the Barn II Dinner Theater in Goodfield, IL, Abby Reel ’04 has been working to save it.
The antique structure had long been used by a theater troupe and was well-known in the community. After it sustained catastrophic damaged, locals and enthusiasts have been campaigning to rebuild the site.
The initiative is estimated to cost $100,000, which will provide updated facilities and accommodate nearly 40% more capacity. Materials from the original site will be integrated into the design as a nod to its rich history. The building, aptly named The Barn III, will expand its use to include community events and weddings.
