We believe in the power of the arts. We believe in its ability to spark wonder and creativity, to open doors into new worlds, cultures and ideas, to create a sense of hope and self-worth, and to transform individuals in an everlasting way. We strive to create opportunities for students and underserved communities to experience the magic of the arts. The Tennessee Theatre is a work of art itself - a visit to this historic venue is a showcase of master craftsmanship, creativity, and architectural marvel.

Our Education and Outreach opportunities include:
These sessions are held for each of our Broadway shows for attendees of all ages. Sessions include in-depth conversations about each show- how they came to be, the process of making a Broadway show, and more, led by Kristin Stultz Pressley, aka Dr. Broadway.
This program is funded by grants and donations and provides tickets to area school-aged children to attend performances, underwrites the cost of hands-on learning through workshops and classes, and underwrites the cost of events for children such as Kids Movie Day. Teachers and group leaders may request tickets for the children they serve.
Tours are tailored for the group based on age, classroom learning, and areas of interest. Tour availability is limited and dependent upon Theatre and staff schedules.
Students can now take a look inside the Tennessee Theatre from anywhere through our virtual tour. (Now available in Spanish.)
We offer hands-on learning experieneces with Broadway professionals from the touring shows performing at the Tennessee. Master classes may include dance, vocal, audition, makeup, percussion, and more. Upcoming events will be listed when available.
