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.
