The Hancher Guild offers tours of Hancher Auditorium occasionally on Wednesdays, starting at 11 a.m. and at 12:30 p.m. The 2023 tour schedule is listed above.

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.

  • Hancher's tours are free, and reservations are not required for public tours.
  • It would be helpful to send an email to the Guild in advance if a group of 10 or more people is planning to take a tour.
  • The minimum age recommended to enjoy our tours is 8 years old.
  • Hancher was designed to be fully accessible to all members of the community.
  • Permit parking in Lot 55 is enforced 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. Public meter and mobile payment parking is available in the northeast corner of Lot 55, just south of the Levitt Center.
  • The Hancher Showcase will be open, too, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Individuals with disabilities are encouraged to attend all University of Iowa sponsored events. If you are a person with a disability who requires a reasonable accommodation in order to participate in this program, please contact Hancher in advance at (319) 335-1160.
