"The longest continuously-operating, non-academic theater in Knoxville." Originally known as "Knoxville Community Theatre," Theatre Knoxville was chartered in March 1976 as part of a downtown development program. It was felt that a community theatre actively housed in a center city location would act as a catalytic agent for the then-Mayor's urban renewal plan. The theatre performed in a variety of venues for decades before finding a permanent home, offering a wide range of adult and children's plays and workshops. TKD entered its current space at 319 N. Gay Street in 2005. TKD was founded and has continued to operate as a community volunteer theatre, open to all residents to participate in every aspect of theatrical production: administration, technical and performance. Over the years it has been a training ground for volunteer technicians, designers and actors who have gone on to professional careers as a result of their volunteer experience.
