FLYING ANVIL THEATRE has two wings.
The first presents adventurous and provocative professional theatre featuring the work of top-notch actors, playwrights, directors and designers. Flying Anvil Theatre is the incendiary Off-Broadway complement to Knoxville’s Broadway theatre, Clarence Brown Theatre.
Flying Anvil Theatre’s second wing, The Hammer Ensemble, uplifts the community by telling the stories of underserved populations, highlighting social issues and training a diverse, dynamic ensemble of new performers.
We believe in the power of compelling stories told with the visceral impact of theatre to touch hearts, minds and souls.
Our long-term goals are to provide consistently excellent, daring work rarely seen in Knoxville and to provide creative and economic opportunities for theatre artists on stage and behind the scenes. We will engage audiences in a conversation about the issues important to Knoxville and the region. Each wing of Flying Anvil Theatre will use the alchemy of live theatre to unite an audience of individuals into a community of shared emotions and ideas. Our vision is to become the premier small professional theatre company in the Southeast.
