Dr. Phillips Center Curiosity Tours

The Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts have started giving Curiosity Tours that explore the stories and spaces of the arts center.

The 45-minute tour, with time following for questions and answers, are docent-led and are available Saturday mornings at 10:30 a.m. and 10:45 a.m. They are free to the public. Registration is available online at drphillipscenter.org for designated Saturdays. Each tour hosts a maximum of 20 people. Groups and individuals may sign up.

Two volunteer docents lead each tour concurrently guiding guests to explore the lobby, tiers and event spaces like the DeVos Family Room, with stops backstage. Time is spent in both the Walt Disney Theater and the Alexis & Jim Pugh Theater. Curiosity Tour guests have the opportunity to visit exclusive spaces like the Donors’ Room and the Corporate Hospitality & Sponsor Suite all while hearing the stories of the design, purpose and mission of the arts center.

“The Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts is a great place to come see a show and it’s also destination and community-gathering place. Guests want to be here and they want to explore,” said Kathy Ramsberger, CEO and president of the Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts. “We’re grateful for Fifth Third Bank’s generosity in making the Curiosity Tours possible.”
