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 theatre is a showcase of master craftsmanship, creativity, and architectural marvel.
Our Education and Outreach opportunities include:
These workshops are held a few Saturdays each year for both children and adults. Workshops include in-depth conversations about Broadway shows coming to the Tennessee - how they came to be, the process of making a Broadway show, hands on learning, and behind the scenes opportunities to learn how the Theatre works. Upcoming events will be listed when available.
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.
If you are interested in setting up a tour for your group, please contact Mary Adkins at [email protected]. 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.
