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.




Girl Scout, Sydnee Pendergast, has helped South Jackson Civic Center through her Gold Project, “Theater Room Goes Green”!  After many hours of labor and many hands helping our dressing room space is now bigger and offers better accommodations for our actors.  Using the Recycle, Reuse, Reduce theory, Sydnee made tables out cola cans, reuse counter tops and office partitions to make a fabulous space.  Check out this link for more information:  https://www.facebook.com/Theater-Room-Goes-Green-111771713513228/
