With a dual mission to train the next generation of theatre artists and to provide top quality professional theatre, the Clarence Brown Theatre at the University of Tennessee Knoxville is one of only 12 academic LORT (League of Resident Theatre) institutions in the nation. Under the artistic direction of Calvin MacLean, the CBT season runs from August through May and features eight productions ranging from musicals to drama.
The Clarence Brown has a rich history and a mission equally focused on enriching the culture of Knoxville and training the next generation of great artists. Offering a diverse season of plays and musicals, the theatre is a LORT D Equity company run and operated by the University of Tennessee Dept. of Theatre to foster professional standards in the theatre curriculum and to serve the greater East Tennessee community.
