The theatre was founded in 1972 by S. Carlton Guptill on the family farm on Route 4.

Guptill envisioned a summer stock theatre that would showcase the talents of professional and developing thespians from the regional area.

Following the death of Guptill in 1995, a Memorial Fund was established to preserve and improve the historic building and allow the theatre to continue.

Over the years, patrons to the barn have included former President George H.W. Bush and his wife Barbara Bush.
