​After a successful and well received previous season, General Manager, Blake Smith wanted to provide as much variety as possible in the upcoming season. “Two big shows that I was excited to confirm are Circus 1903 and Trace Adkins. Circus 1903 was unfortunately pulled by the producers, however, we were able to replace it with The Illusionists, who had a great run on Broadway. I was looking at The Illusionists as an add on, so it worked out perfectly for us. With Adkins releasing his first album in 4 years with his new label BBR Music Group/Wheelhouse Records, I was happy we could include him in our season. Everyone who has heard he will be here is very excited. We announced the season to our Subscribers and Sponsors in May, and it was enthusiastically received. I am looking forward to our continued growth this season and think we have something for everyone. It is a very family friendly season.”

The Clayton Center for the Arts, located on the Maryville College campus and constructed through a unique partnership between the College and the cities of Maryville and Alcoa, is East Tennessee’s newest venue for arts and entertainment.

The 1,200-seat Ronald and Lynda Nutt Theatre features dance, theatre, concerts, lectures and other events.
