Shea’s Historic Tours


Shea’s Performing Arts Center is a major cultural institution that has been on the National Register of Historic Places since 1975. Designed by C.W. and George L. Rapp of Chicago, Shea’s features an interior of Neo-Spanish Baroque design. Shea’s Grand Lobby features a reproduction of the original rendering done by Tiffany Studios for Rapp & Rapp. The intricately ornamented ceiling and spectacular chandeliers fully reflect Tiffany’s rendering, one of the only four Tiffany-designed theaters still in existence. Come and tour our historic theater, one of the finest in the country.

Tours are by appointment only on Tuesday, Thursday at Saturday at 10am and 1pm. Call and leave a voice message to make a reservation.
