We have certainly been living through an unprecedented time in our world. We have been busy at South Jackson Civic Center for the Performing Arts trying to make sure we make the most of this time and do what is right for our community as well as our theatre family. As we begin to bring the lights back up, we realize that things could change according to State requirements and the CDC but we want to keep you updated on our events from now until the end of the 2020.

Coronavirus has made a huge impact on theatre companies around the world. We were forced to postpone or cancel many shows. It goes without saying that a very large percentage of our revenue generated comes from the sell of tickets and holding other events that are directly tied to people getting together in groups. The COVID-19 pandemic has virtually eliminated this income from our theater.

We also rely on charitable contributions and this is a time that requires the generosity and support of theatre fans and supporters. Currently for theatres, donations are the most direct and immediate way to help us get through this very difficult time.

If you are so inclined to make a donation you can easily donate at southjackson.org. Any size donation will help us keep things running and recover from the effects of this pandemic. We appreciate anything that you are able to do and we look forward to seeing you at one of our shows soon.

Keeping the Show Alive!

South Jackson Civic Association

was formed in 1977 to “Save South Jackson”, a grass-roots effort to halt the destruction of the South Jackson School. Nestled in the core of the building is Tullahoma’s first public school built in 1886. We opened our doors as the South Jackson Civic Center in January, 1979 with our first performance. South Jackson Civic Association has operated for the past forty years as a presenting organization, museum, and community resource serving the Middle Tennessee counties of Coffee, Moore, Franklin, Bedford, and Warren. The Civic Center contains rehearsal facilities, conference and meeting rooms, a 400-seat auditorium, full stage with proscenium arch and a local history museum.
