The Renaissance is a great place for community events, plus adult classes in art music, etc. Community theater, and a college branch. We have been there for everything from plays to beekeeping classes.

Matinee of MR. JINGLE'S CHRISTMAS CLAUSE brought true ring of the season to the place and attached itself to me so I brought it home! The venue has been reconfigured for the better since my last visit. The play, performance, and entire production points to a great deal of hard work expended by each and every one involved. Excellent piece... More

We used to love this place before it was taken over by Freed-Hardeman University. While I have nothing really against FHU, it's very sad that all the wonderful courses are no longer available, especially the art courses. This used to be a great place for community learning, especially in the arts. Students of all ages could come here and get... More

I really enjoy going here to see plays and other performances, but it seems as in the past few years the overall quality has gone down some. When the whole purpose of the building is theatre and the arts for the community, budget cuts to those programs aren't exactly recommended. You can really tell when a production is under-staffed and... More

If you like art, they have a gallery that they are always updating with new artists. They have art for sale as well. There is a gift shop where you can purchase some locally made pieces. They also have a planetarium where you can go to see educational shows as well as " Laser Shows" featuring Pink Floyd, Metallica etc...

I love this place. It offers a lot of things that otherwise our small community may not get a chance to experience. me and my kids love going to the plays and I love that a lot of these productions use local kids and talent. prices are affordable.Laser shows are also awesome.

The Renaissance Center has been a real blessing to the Dickson community since 1999, bringing fine arts exhibits, plays & music theater, local offerings from regional universities, etc. It's an amazing facility for a town our size, and I'm told it draws people from 75 miles away for events and classes.

The exhibits are great here and the ambiance is much greater than expected for a rural community. I especially like the live musical performances and the dinner theatre. And the planetarium is on par w/much offerings in much bigger cities.
