Krannert Center for the Performing Arts is one of the many gems the University of Illinois has to offer us, so why not check out the inner workings? Krannert offers free tours at 3 p.m. Tuesdays through Fridays to anyone who’s interested in learning the history of the center as well as see the performance and production spaces up close. Here’s the info from their website:
Meet in the Lobby in front of the Ticket Office to take a peek inside each of our theatres and learn more about Krannert Center. Each tour is given by a student staff member who will tell you about the history of the building, the unique designs of each performance space, and how the Center operates. The tour will lead you into the theatres, onto the stages, and take you through the production areas of Krannert Center.
You can check the website for specific dates, no sign up needed, just show up in the lobby at tour time!
