Backstage Tour


Take a free backstage tour of the Alex Theatre for an exclusive, behind-the-scenes look at the historic venue as you have never seen it before!

The tour is led by a guide who will conduct an overview of the landmark’s 94-year history, from its inception as a vaudeville house and movie palace in 1925 to its transformation to a world-class performing arts and entertainment center in the 1990s and more recently, the backstage expansion of 2014 and current programs and activities.

Participants will also have the chance to see sound and lighting demos and explore and learn about the facility’s interior and exterior architecture, in addition to the sculptures and art and antique objects that adorn the venue.

This two-hour walking tour includes climbing stairs and is not recommended for young children. There is no elevator access to the Terrace and Balcony levels.

Each tour is limited to 20 people.

Attendees will also have the opportunity to purchase merchandise in the lobby. Only cash is accepted at this time and exact change is appreciated.
