Backstage Tours

This is your chance to see how the magic happens!

Have you ever wondered what it’s like to go behind the scenes of a professional theatre? Join us for insider access to the dressing rooms, green room and backstage. Our trained volunteer guides will share their extensive knowledge of the storied history of the Playhouse and the hundreds of stars who have graced the stage. All tours are open to the public.
