In 1968, a 16 year-old Battle Ground Academy student by the name of Vance Ormes gathered several of his parents’ friends and formed the Pull-Tight Players in Historic Downtown Franklin, with a debut production of Thornton Wilder’s Our Town. Through the years, the Pull-Tight Players garnered a reputation for excellence in community theatre through performances in locations as varied as an old jailhouse on Bridge Street, a Holiday Inn, two schools, a Main Street loft, and even an outdoor space at Carter’s Court before finding permanent residence in its current location on Second Avenue in 1985. As befits Pull-Tight’s own colorful history, this charming historic building has served as host over the years to its own litany of tenants, from a church and a grocery store to a restaurant and antique shop, before becoming home to Pull-Tight’s special brand of entertainment. Today, Pull-Tight celebrates 45 years of providing quality theatre and arts programs to the Williamson County and greater Nashville community through its six mainstage shows each year, as well as its Junior Youth Actors Guild program. We are proud to be a vital part of this community, offering quality entertainment that uplifts, provokes thought, and brings joy to our audiences. Thank you for your continued support of Pull-Tight Theatre and the arts in Williamson County.

Living in downtown Franklin makes getting to the theater convenient. I enjoy this theater because it is small in size therefore all seats are good seats. You feel as though you are apart of the play sitting so close. A+ acting.
