The Hancher Guild offers a public tour of Hancher Auditorium occasionally at 10:30 on a designated Wednesday morning and at 5:30 on a designated Thursday evening. Meet in the lobby prior to a tour's starting time, and your tour guide will greet and guide you or your small group through Hancher's facilities. A tour takes approximately one hour and usually includes Smith Lobby, Strauss Rehearsal Hall, backstage, Hadley Stage and Hancher Auditorium, and Stanley Café.

The tours are open to the public and are free. Reservations are not required for public tours; however, a group of ten or more people making plans to take a tour should notify Hancher in advance by contacting Tim Meier at

On Wednesdays, you may shop in the Hancher Showcase, open 10 am to 1 pm.
On Thursdays, stay awhile and enjoy Thursday Nights at Hancher.


The minimum age recommended to enjoy our tours is eight years old.
