Don't miss the rare opportunity to tour the historic Tennessee Theatre with Manager Tom Bugg!

Have you ever wondered how many light bulbs are in each chandelier in the Grand Lobby?  How has the seating capacity changed over the years? What event attracted the biggest crowds?  Which Broadway show brought 12 semi-trucks full of scenery, sets, and costumes? Learn these details and more about the history, performances, and complete renovation of the Official State Theatre of Tennessee. You’ll go to areas not usually open to the public, and walk away with a better understanding and appreciation for this architectural and cultural gem.

A guided walkthrough featuring the fascinating history, renovation, and performance highlights of the Theatre. Attendees will tour the Grand Lobby, Auditorium, and Stage. All areas are accessible by elevator if needed.
