Tennessee Performing Arts Center


The Tennessee Performing Arts Center (TPAC) is part of the James K Polk Cultural Arts Center in downtown Nashville. The Center occupies an entire city block and includes four performance theaters, the Tennessee State Museum, and an 18-story office tower. TPAC (pronounced T-PAC) offers over 500 performances annually, including Broadway productions, performances by the Nashville Opera, Nashville Ballet and Tennessee Repertory Theater, and other musicians and performance artists. In addition, private groups can rent out the venues for dance recitals, concerts, plays, and more. Prior to its move to the Schermerhorn Center in 2006, the Nashville Symphony performed at TPAC.

TPAC is also home to Humanities Outreach in Tennessee, an award-winning program that offers arts-in-education programs for the students and teachers in Tennessee.

This weekend, the popular Broadway show, Spamalot, is playing TPAC.
