How to Find Us
The Playhouse is located behind the Boone Unitarian Universalist Fellowship on King Street and near the intersection of King Street and the 105 Extension. Due to the median on King Street, it is no longer possible to turn left into our driveway. If you are approaching us from the west (i.e. Downtown Boone or the ASU campus), please follow the second set of directions below.
From E. 421 or Hwy 105: Although our address is 400 Tracy Circle, The Children’s Playhouse is easy to access from King Street if you are approaching Boone from the east on 421 (i.e. Winston Salem) or from the South on 105. Visitors using gps systems may wish to set the gps for 381 E. King Street, which will bring you to our parking lot.
From W. 421/King Steet: Due to the median on King Street, it is no longer possible to turn left into our driveway. If you are on West King Street/421 heading East, please follow these directions: After you pass Earth Fare on your left, turn left at the light unto Councill Street, veer right onto Edgewood which will take you behind Grace Lutheran Church, stay straight and you will now be on Tracy Circle.
