Perfect ideas for the those who love the Theatre!

Make their season bright with a special gift from the Tennessee Theatre! We’ve got great stocking stuffers and presents alike for all the Knoxville enthusiasts and arts lovers on your list this year. All items can be ordered online or in person at our Gift Shop on Clinch Avenue in downtown Knoxville. 


Paris Woodhull Tote Bag

New this year! Our Canvas tote is a lightweight yet durable bag and the perfect companion for any adventure, big or small. Featuring original artwork by Knoxville Illustrator Paris Woodhull, this tote will catch the eye of anyone who loves our iconic marquee. Not to mention, it can be the perfect helper during shopping season.



Bring a piece of the Theatre home with you! These glass-blown replica ornaments depict many of the Theatre's most beloved details: from our signature red velvet seats to the Mighty Wurlitzer Organ, from a beautiful lobby chandelier to the iconic Tennessee blade sign. Each ornament was meticulously hand-crafted by a team of European Artisans over a seven-day process to create a memory that will last a lifetime. We also have an acrylic ornament designed by local artist Fran Harris, depicting the Tennessee blade sign in a fun, retro art style. These are the perfect addition to any holiday tree, or just have them on display all year round.  





It’s Theatre fun for the whole family with our selection of Tennessee Theatre t-shirts! If you are looking for a shirt to keep you warm in the chilly days ahead, check out our Unisex long- sleeved shirts, with original artwork by Status Serigraph on the back. You can also check out our newest t-shirt design by local illustrator Paris Woodhull. This super-soft short-sleeved shirt comes in a gorgeous teal color and features an illustrated collage of the Theatre’s most iconic features. Finally, for any kiddos that can’t get enough of the Theatre, our youth-sized shirts are the perfect gift for an arts aficionado in the making! With a playful Wizard of Oz design by Rachel Travis and comfortable, bright red fabric, this gift is sure to stand out among the many presents they’ll get this year.
