Our Stars on Stage annual fundraising event is going virtual this year! We are pleased to announce a special streaming concert from the Tennessee's legendary stage with Drew Holcomb and the Neighbors on Thursday, October 1, which is the Theatre's 92nd Anniversary. The concert will be free to watch, but we encourage donations and there will be an online auction with autographed items, unique experiences, art, and more. There are also special packages available to purchase to make your viewing experience even better!
This year’s fundraiser is more important than ever as we have lost 95% of our revenue due to closing during the pandemic. The Tennessee Theatre misses being filled with audiences who come together to experience its magic and make memories to be cherished for years to come. But this dark period is only an intermission, and we look forward to the next act! We need your help so that we will be ready to bring back live events as soon as it is safe and possible for everyone. Join us for the streaming concert, make a donation, participate in the online auction, and share the event with your friends, family, and colleagues. This is an easy way to show your love and support for the Official State Theatre of Tennessee!
