State Theatre Company Presents: The 39 Steps

For those of you who may not have heard, the State Theatre Company is the company whose mission is to revitalize, repurpose, and operate the historic State Theater in downtown Kingsport. Their goal with the building is to create a professional multi-purpose venue; Live Theatre, Cinema, Concerts, Special Events, etc. Getting inside of the building is no easy task. They are currently seeking significant donors to help us begin renovations. If you are interested in learning more about their mission and how to donate, please respond to this email, or visit our website:

While they work towards the revitalization of the building, they have begun programming as a theatre company. Last year they put on several events, such as State of Affairs (bi-weekly variety show), Write Thru The Nite (24 Hour play festival), and their debut theatrical production “Romeo & Juliet,” which was well received with the community.

In the attempts to advance our programming, we have outlined an entire season for 2017:

The 39 Steps: March 16th – April 2nd

Model City Film Festival: June 3rd & 4th

Grease: June 23rd – July 9th

Twelfth Night (Shakespeare): Sept. 15th – Oct. 1st

One Act Showcase: Nov. 3rd – 12th

It’s a Wonderful Life: Dec. 1st – 15th

As you can see, this is quite the undertaking for a new theatre company, but we fully believe in the support of our community to bring to life each one of these productions.
