Community Center - Gallery - Theater
128 E. Main St., Manchester, TN 37355
The Manchester Arts Center was purchased on May 3, 2008. It officially opened for business with the production of “Seussical,” the musical, in June of 2009. It took that long to turn the former furniture store into a performing arts venue with the availability to have visual arts classes as well. It was worth the wait!
The theatre area has 136 comfortable theatre seats and has the capacity to seat 150 or more with the addition of folding chairs. The 40 foot wide stage has a proscenium arch and a moveable canvas backdrop which can either be painted or used temporarily as a scrim.
