Tours

Ever wondered how the spectacular costumes are designed, how simple plywood can be fashioned to look like fine drawing room paneling, or how sets can be built to look like impenetrable stone castles? Perhaps you’ve pondered what goes into creating the simulated food, grand statues, whimsical puppetry, or elaborate headgear seen onstage.

Whatever your area of interest, the Globe’s experienced, knowledgeable, and enthusiastic docents are sure to entertain you with interesting tidbits and fascinating stories as they guide you through the backstage areas and craft shops of our three theatres. You’ll also learn of the Globe’s rich history and a little something about each of the current plays running, whether it’s a well-loved classic, a contemporary Tony Award-winning play, or an exciting new musical.

Tours are open to children in grade 3 or above and to adults of all ages.

Behind the Scenes Tours are available on select dates at 10:30 a.m. (see available dates in the section on the right). To book a tour, please send us the date you would like to attend and the number of children, adults, and seniors in your party.

Tour length: 90 minutes.

Tour cost: $5 for adults, $3 for students and senior citizens. One complimentary adult admission for every 10 students (up to three free adults).

For groups larger than 20 people, please allow three weeks’ notice to book a tour.

For more information, or to book a private tour, please email us at Tours@TheOldGlobe.org.
