Tacoma, Wash. – Learn about Tacoma’s rich theatre history on the Walk Tacoma Theatre Walk on Wednesday, May 4 at 5:15 p.m. sponsored by Spaceworks Tacoma. This free walk, led by David Fischer, Broadway Center for the Performing Arts Executive Director, will take participants on a one-mile walk to many of Tacoma’s gems, like the Pantages, the Rialto, and the Grand Cinema.
The Walk Tacoma event will begin outside the Pantages Theater and end with a social of light appetizers at the Old Spaghetti Factory. The route is a bit hilly, with a climb up the Spanish Steps and hill climb up to the Grand Cinema on Market St., but participants who are not up for the hill will have the option to meet up with the group as they head back down to the Rialto Theater and Theatre on the Square. The route is largely accessible for wheelchairs and strollers, with an alternate route at the Spanish Steps.
Walk leader David Fischer will share information about historic theaters, Theater District artwork, upcoming renovations, and a tour of the Pantages Theater. There is no pre-registration necessary, just join Downtown On the Go at the start location.
“Spaceworks Tacoma is thrilled to be a DOTG Walk Tacoma sponsor, for the fourth year in a row, for what is sure to be a fabulous tour by the amazing David Fischer! This is a great opportunity to see and learn about some of the best cultural assets Tacoma has to offer.” says Heather Joy, Spaceworks Manager.
