After three months, our beloved vertical sign and marquee will back on Gay Street brighter and better than ever. Join us for a celebration of its relighting. We will have self-guided tours of the stage and backstage areas from 6-8 p.m. House organist Dr. Bill Snyder will play the Mighty Wurlitzer organ, and a caricature artist will draw guests with the iconic Tennessee Theatre marquee. At 8pm, we will move outside onto Gay Street, which will be closed in front of the theatre, for a countdown to relight the sign and marquee!

At the event, you will have the opportunity to sponsor a bulb for $25 or purchase several commemorative items, including a hand-crafted vertical sign glass ornament or fine art print of the marquee to help fund the project. Other Tennessee Theatre merchandise will also be available for purchase including tshirt, pint glasses, and our book.

The open house portion of the evening is sponsored by McCarty Holsaple McCarty Architects & Interior Designers.
