St. Knoxville, TN, 37902.
Where can I park?
The Fantasy of Trees does not provide guaranteed or free parking for performers,

Convention Center. Please allow yourself ample time to park and walk to
the convention center. Carpooling is strongly encouraged.

Please arrive 45 minutes prior to your scheduled performance.
Where do I check in?
Entertainment check-in is located between 200A and 200B, on the second
level of the Knoxville Convention Center.
How many tickets do I receive as a performer?
Performers will receive one complimentary ticket for a guest. Performers,
directors and chaperones who are listed on the performance roster will
receive a hand stamp at check-in that allows them entry to the show. (Should
you exit the show at any time, you will need a stamp in order to return.)

If my child is performing, can I stay in the 2nd floor dressing room and/or
wait for them backstage?
Parents are not allowed backstage. All child performers will be held under
the supervision of their director backstage until the entire group’s
performance is complete. No performer will return to the 2nd floor dressing
rooms. Please plan on meeting your child at the designated dismissal area,
located beside the stage.
Where can I change out of my performance attire?
Performers will be allowed to change after their performance in the restrooms
located behind the stage. We ask that you do not change in any of the
other public restrooms in the convention center. Doing so creates confusion
and overcrowding for other Fantasy of Trees guests, and could impact your
group’s future performances at Fantasy of Trees.
Is video recording allowed?
We encourage you to take video of this special performance. However, for
the safety of all attending guests, we ask that you stay clear of walkways
and paths. No one will be permitted on the sound stage to record. NOTE:
Remember to charge your camera or phone ahead of time; charging stations
will not be available.
I perform on Saturday...Is there a UT home game?
There is not a UT football home game on Saturday, November 24th.
If you have any additional questions, your director/instructor has received
additional detailed instructions regarding your performance at the Fantasy of Trees.
