The 16th century clock tower that fronts the Theatre is one of the oldest surviving landmarks of the historic Merchant City. Join a tour to discover the compelling past and visit areas normally closed to the public including the wardrobe department!
Designed by James Adam in 1795, the Tron building has been reincarnated in various forms over the centuries, from a church to council workshops and even at one point a police station! Today the Tron Theatre provides a platform for new & exciting theatre work to be performed as well as producing our own productions. On your tour you will be guided through the Front and Back of House areas of the Tron, giving you the chance to visit all the areas normally closed to the public such as the wardrobe department which produces all of our wonderful costumes. While you are on your journey around the Theatre you will learn about the Trons varied past and how we evolved from a 16th century church to the Tron we all know and love today. You may also bump into one of Trons ghostly residents!
After your tour you can relax in our bar and kitchen and recharge your batteries with our wonderful menu and drinks selection.
For any young aspiring actors we will also be opening the doors of our Skillshops classes as part of our Doors Open Day Taster Sessions. These sessions, aimed at 4-11 year olds, will allow anyone interested in youth theatre to have a taste of the classes Tron run throughout the year. For the very young (0-3 years), well also be running Tiny and Tall Tales sessions fun-filled hour-long storytelling classes with creative play.
