The Underground Theatre
The Underground Theatre at the Community Arts Café is a unique performing arts facility where artists may present a showcase of their work to the public in a relaxed, attentive listening environment. The venue was established to provide a valuable platform for performing artists who are actively developing their craft for career advancement, and who desire the opportunity to present their works, hold CD release showcases or simply perform to an attentive listening audience outside of the typical bar scene. The venue is equipped with basic stage lighting, a grand piano and a sound system that may adequately accommodate most acts. A professional sound engineer is also available for a moderate fee if desired.
The Underground Theatre is the primary performance venue for the Fiddle & Bow Society, the Piedmont Jazz Alliance, Nashville Songwriters Association International and Cinema Pub, an interactive community based film program that provides an outlet for local film makers. Through these and other organizations, some of the finest regional, national & international performers have graced the stage of the Underground. The venue is also available for private parties and special events rentals.
