A lovely little theatre with wonderful live performances. The shows I've seen here have been first rate, even though on a tiny stage in an intimate setting. "Of Mice and Men" was wonderfully poignant, and the recent "Forever Plaid" made creative use of their space while giving one of the best performances I've seen in a while. I love regional theatre - and this is a great place to see it. They offer a wide variety of shows, from musicals to comedy, to drama, to Shakespeare, to children's theatre. The most expensive ticket is $20 - seriously, $20 for a night at the theatre!
Built in 1898, the building was formerly the customs house and post office. The architecture of the building is wonderful. They say it's one of the most photographed buildings in TN.
There are many hands on exhibits for the kids, and an 1846 log cabin that has been reassembled in the building.
Top notch gift shop contains excellent examples of TN craftsmen work.
Open Tues - Sat 10am - 5pm.
Sun 1 - 5pm (Free admission day)
Located in a historic movie theater (build in 1913), the Roxy stages plays from modern to Shakespearean. There are almost continuous productions.
