Join us for a one-hour behind-the-scenes tour of The Old Globe to get an inside look at how the spectacular costumes are designed, how impenetrable stone castles are built on the stage, or how a new prop can be made to look 100 years old. Learn about our lighting and sound teams, which celebrities have passed through here, and which shows have gone on to grace the stages of Broadway.

Our knowledgeable docents will bring you through all three theatres and artisan craft shops* while sharing fun tidbits and stories of past and present shows, and maybe even share some inside information about upcoming ones!
