Trees of Christmas

December 1-5, 2021

It’s time to get your “jingle” on! Wander through a forest of festively decorated trees during what is soon to become one of the area’s favorite holiday traditions – South Jackson’s Trees of Christmas!
Our forest of uniquely-decorated trees will line the halls and exhibit areas of South Jackson Performing Arts Center offering visitors the opportunity to stroll at their leisure while enjoying beautiful Christmas chamber music, hot chocolate, coffees, ciders and baked goods. Perfect for family and friends visiting during the holidays, entertainment for children, and inspiration for your own holiday decorating and more.

Every year a portion of the proceeds from the Trees of Christmas will go to benefit another local non-profit.

This year we will be supporting the Tullahoma Day Care Center.

Come enjoy the beauty of the Trees – Admission is $5 per person with one child under 12 admitted for free with a paying adult. Household maximum charge is $20.

All through the holiday season South Jackson will be your direct line to the North Pole. You can bring your children to any event and they can mail their letter to Santa. Santa will respond to all letters if there is a return address.

Holmes for the Holidays (The Game’s Afoot)

December 9-12, 2021

Thursday, Friday & Saturday at 7pm

Sunday at 2:30pm

“Broadway star William Gillette, admired the world over for his leading role in the play Sherlock Holmes, has invited his fellow cast-members to his Connecticut castle for a weekend of revelry.  But when one of the guests is stabbed to death, the festivities in this isolated house of tricks and mirrors quickly turn dangerous.  Then it’s up to Gillette himself, as he assumes the persona of his beloved Holmes, to track down the killer before the next victim appears.  The danger and hilarity are non-stop in this glittering whodunnit set during the Christmas holidays.”

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.
