Our regular seasons usually include six main-stage shows. Our season begins in July and runs through June.
We try to offer a range of shows that include both plays and musicals. On our stage you’ll likely see productions of the most familiar shows published in the 20th and 21st centuries. We also introduce newer and lesser-known shows that we think our audiences will appreciate.
Be advised that some of our shows may not be suitable for all audiences. We advise discretion before purchasing a ticket for a child, and we don’t recommend attendance by children under 4 years of age.
Doors open 30 minutes prior to each performance. We only allow patron entrance through the main doors facing 2nd Ave. South. A ramp to the front entrance accommodates those with mobility challenges. During some performances, a queue will begin to form an hour or more before performances begin. We recommend arriving as early as your schedule will allow.
We seat approximately 90 patrons per performance in unreserved seats. If you are coming to see a friend or family member in a performance, be advised that cast and crew may not reserve seats for any patron.
You can purchase water, soft drinks and candy at intermissions for $1 per item. Two restrooms are available in the hallway opposite the entrance.
We provide reserved accessible seating for patrons with mobility challenges. You may signify your need for accessible seating during checkout in our online box office. Or, email us to request this service prior to your performance date.
Casual attire is welcome.
Our contracts with show licensors do not allow photography or video capture of any kind during performances.
Smoking is never permitted inside the Pull-Tight Theater.
Ticket prices for individual shows are $20 for adults, $18 for seniors (age 60 and up), and $16 for children and students.
Season ticket prices for the 2022-23 season are $102 for adults, $90 for seniors, and $78 for children and students.
We offer season tickets during June and July for the upcoming season. Season ticket sales close 18 days prior to the first performance of the season’s first show.
We offer online purchasing beginning at 10 a.m., two Mondays before a show’s opening performance. The link to purchase tickets will be on the Current Show page and Tickets page of the website.

In very limited circumstances, we have seating available at the door 30 minutes before a performance begins. You may pay with cash or credit card in our lobby. We cannot guarantee any availability of tickets at the door as our shows often sell out ahead of time.
Exchanges must occur no less than 48 hours before your scheduled performance. After that, we cannot make exchanges and we do not offer refunds. You may give your ticket to another person. Tell them to provide your name at the door for admittance.
Tell them to provide your name at the door for admittance. You may also forward them the confirmation email of your ticket purchase to bring with them, though it will likely not be necessary to show it.

1. Click the exchange link in your ticket receipt or reminder email.

You may exchange tickets from one performance to another 48 hours before the scheduled performance, if seats are available. We do not offer refunds.
The Board of Directors is always glad to consider partnering with our nonprofit friends in the community. Email the Ticket Office with your request.
Look in email program’s spam, junk, updates, or promotions folders. Also, make sure you have included firstname.lastname@example.org in your email contacts list. This will ensure that future emails from us arrive successfully If you still cannot find the ticket confirmation email, email the Ticket Office. We can resend the confirmation.
The ticket codes are case-sensitive. You must enter the code exactly as displayed. Ensure the caps lock key on your keyboard is off and your autocorrect feature doesn’t capitalize the first letter of your ticket code.
We are located in historic downtown Franklin, Tennessee.

Three levels of parking are available in the free city garage next to the theater. Another free garage is on 4th Ave. South across from Puckett’s and Meridee’s Bread Basket. You may also be able to find free street parking in the area, depending on other activities taking place in Franklin.
Our theater is one of the oldest free-standing buildings in Franklin. Missionaries built the structure in 1868 as the first church in our city for freed slaves. A cornerstone to the left of the entrance identifies Wiley Memorial Methodist Episcopal Church, 1925, named for the denomination’s bishop. The year 1925 was when the current foyer was added following tornado damage. The church congregation ceased using the building in 1945. It exchanged hands many times in the ensuing decades, spending one period as an antique shop. Pull-Tight Players has used the building since 1985.
Contractually, Pull-Tight Players is not allowed to consider requests for use of the theater from third parties.
We are an entirely volunteer-based organization that depends on community involvement. We always welcome newcomers. Volunteer opportunities exist for our show cast and crew, door-working during performances, committee membership, set construction, technical work, and many other roles. A volunteer who has achieved a minimum amount of involvement may run for our board of directors to serve for a three-year term. Volunteers may become eligible for show direction or production once they have served as show assistant director, stage manager, or choreographer.
Pull-Tight always holds open auditions for every show. We do not pre-cast roles and welcome anyone to audition. Watch the Auditions tab on our website menu for information about upcoming auditions.
We thank the generous donors who have given monetary donations over the years. Learn more about donating to Pull-Tight.
