Performing Arts | Tennessee Vacation

Tennessee’s world-famous music scene shares the spotlight with a vibrant community of theater troupes, storytellers and filmmakers. Whether you’re in a quaint Southern town or a bustling metropolis, you’re never far from a great show.

Our cultural heritage takes center stage in our beautiful historic theaters. Tennesseans have gone to remarkable lengths to restore the grand movie palaces and auditoriums that make every show unforgettable. Imagine crystal chandeliers and velvet seats at the Orpheum Theatre in Memphis, the legendary Mighty Wurlitzer organ that rises from beneath the stage in Knoxvilles Historic Tennessee Theatre

If the plays your thing, take in a Broadway-style show at award-winning Cumberland County Playhouse in Crossville, or see a storybook come to life at the Nashville Children’s Theatre
