Meet in the lobby prior to the starting time, and your tour guides will greet and guide you or your small group through Hancher's facilities. A tour takes approximately one hour and includes Smith Lobby, Strauss Rehearsal Hall, backstage, Hadley Stage and Hancher Auditorium, and Stanley Café.

  • 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 public 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.
