Plan your visit to the Cumberland County Playhouse
Welcome to the Cumberland County Playhouse, located on the beautiful Cumberland Plateau. When planning your visit to the Cumberland County Playhouse, we always recommend two things: (1) call to confirm your reservation, and (2), allow plenty of time to pick up your tickets at the window. Theater seating begins 30 minutes before curtain, so you may want to arrive before that if you need to pick up tickets from the Playhouse Box Office.
While at the Playhouse, we encourage you to take the time to visit both the Playhouse Boutique for show merchandise and the Playhouse Applause Gift Shop. Also, backstage tours are available upon request. Please call the box office in advance to request a tour as these are dependent upon scheduling.
The Playhouse is an easier-than-ever destination on the Cumberland Plateau with a new approach from the north recently completed that essentially drops you off at our front door. Click here to get started with Google Map directions.
If you plan on dining during your visit, there are many wonderful, unique eateries in the area. One of the more popular stops for groups has long been the restaurant at the Cumberland Mountain State Park. Some other favorites include Forte's on the Square in downtown Crossville; The Brass Lantern; The Beef & Barrel; Dublin's Crossing Irish Pub; Family Ties; Red's Ale House; and Lefty's BBQ, just north of Exit 320 from I-40. Feel free to ask our Box Office for suggestions based on your schedule.
For those staying overnight, Crossville is known as "The Golf Capital of Tennessee" with several notable courses including the Jack Nicklaus Signature "Bear Trace" course at The Cumberland Mountain State Park. Click here for a list of courses.
