Home to Red Herring Productions, this 80-seat black-box theater in Columbus’ first neighborhood is serving as an incubator space for emerging performance artists helping Franklinton become a destination point. The 8,000 sq. ft. clear span warehouse was converted into a flexible space theater in 2016, providing patrons a unique experience with each new production. Tours will provide a behind-the-scenes view of the theater and visitors will experience the technical pieces of a new production as they are being refined.
Tours of Franklinton Playhouse/Red Herring Productions are available on Saturday, September 14 at 11 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. or Sunday, September 15 at 1 p.m. and 3:30 p.m.
