The Overlook Theatre Company

The Overlook Theatre Company was established in 1996 with the goal of providing quality, family entertainment. Over the years, the company has performed many musicals, plays and special events due to its many committed volunteers and the support of the community. We are thrilled and excited to call the Smoky Mountain Center for the Performing Arts our new home and hope that each production will continue to thrill, excite and open up a world of possibilities and imagination.

What People Are Saying About Overlook Theatre Company

It’s hard to believe that a town as small as Franklin has such a fabulous place for shows. We’vd been to the SMCPA about 12 times since we moved here 3 years ago. We love it.

Barbara Bull

We went to the Smoky Mountain Center for the Performing Arts tonight. They featured a wonderful performance of “Beauty and the Beast”. The props and backdrops were awesome! The actors were great.

L Floyd

This is a wonderful place. We saw the show, Disney’s Decendants. It was fantastic! The facility was great.

Current Casting Info

Seussical - The Musical

SEUSSICAL THE MUSICAL
A character specific rehearsal schedule will be posted at the first rehearsal. All cast members should plan to be at the first rehearsal- if you do not attend the first rehearsal (and you did not have a prior conflict) it will be assumed you do not wish to participate. Scripts and music will be given at that time. Please bring a pencil and wear clothes and shoes you can move in- this show is very physical. Al non-drivers should have a ride at the theatre no later than 8:15pm. Let’s have some fun!!!
