BOONE, NC – Each Wednesday afternoon beginning on September 14, the venerable
Appalachian Theatre of the High Country will provide staff-led guided tours of their
historic facility starting at 1 p.m.
The tour includes a walk-through of the venue, insight into the theatre's history, and a
15-minute short film chronicling the evolution of the space and featuring first-hand
perspectives. Tourgoers explore the theatre's historical photo gallery, hear stories and
anecdotes about the venue and its role throughout the years, and visit the audience and
backstage areas of the newly-refurbished theatre.
“This venue, its traditions, and the stories surrounding it are near and dear to the hearts
of those who've made history here,” said App Theatre Executive Director Suzanne
Livesay. “The mini-documentary shares wonderful backstory and helps newcomers better
understand and relate to the rich history of the theatre.”
Tours are free of charge and last approximately 45 minutes. Visit apptheatre.org to
reserve your tour spot and to join the theatre’s e-blast list.
