Bell and Barter Theatre

Bud Masters, a Dover native who formerly owned and operated a costume shop on Main Street in Boonton and a dance studio in Denville, has been working to rehabilitate the Bell and Barter Theatre at Wall and Church streets in Rockaway Borough, above, and turn it into a performance and instruction space for young performers. After nearly a decade of working on establishing a non-profit to purchase and repair the building, which dates to 1860, Masters and volunteers from the community have made tremendous strides in the past two years. It took a year to clear out the building and address some safety issues.
