About the Tunnel Hill Shindig Show 

The Tunnel Hill Shindig Show was birthed out of a vision to revitalize a community through the production of first-rate, high-quality theatrical and musical productions. In 2019, a group of local North Georgia entertainers developed the idea for a country music-themed variety show that would showcase local talent. The Tunnel Hill Shindig Show premiered to a packed audience in November 2019.

Southern Premier Entertainment

The producers of the show reacted to the great response of the Shindig Show by forming a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, Southern Premier Entertainment in March 2020.

Mission Statement

As a 501(c)(3) non-profit, Southern Premier Entertainment is committed to providing a creative outlet to the community through high-quality theatrical and musical productions as well as to engage in events that would help promote and subsidize other local nonprofit organizations.

Board of Directors

Southern Premier Entertainment and the Tunnel Hill Shindig were founded by a small group of entertainers with several years of experience in professional theater. Members of our Board have worked for companies such as: Walt Disney World, Six Flags, Country Tonite Theatre, Biblical Times Dinner Theater, national touring shows, as well as regional productions throughout the Southeastern United States.

Performers & Volunteers

We understand that our volunteers fuel the success of our shows. Our shows can only come alive with the hard work and dedication of our singers, dancers, lighting and sound technicians, backstage crew, set construction crew, and front-of-house staff. We are always looking for those willing to share their talents with us – both on-stage and off-stage.
