Johnson City Community Theatre

600 E Maple St
, 37601 Johnson City


Johnson City was 14 years old when its first theater group was formed in 1885. Preachers at the Methodist churches in town took to their pulpits, promising hellfire and damnation to anyone who darkened a playhouse door.

A little more than a half-century later in 1912, Johnson City’s theater group began performing at least three shows a year. That organization continues to this day, making the Johnson City Community Theatre the oldest continuously-running theater organization in the state of Tennessee, and one of the oldest in the country.
