Over 90 minutes, our specially trained Backstage Tour guides reveal the secrets of our theatres. You will gain unique access to backstage rooms, hidden passageways and technical contraptions unknown to anyone but our production crews and performers. During the tour, you will trace the footsteps of famous performers, directors and choreographers, and hear behind-the-scenes stories about some of the major productions that have graced our stages.
