Orpheum Theatre Group https://orpheum-memphis.com/

The Orpheum Theatre Group believes in the power of the arts to transform the world on a local and global level. We strive to provide access to quality arts programming for all people and to educate and build community through collaboration, story-sharing, and creative expression.

We create space for people to share their truths and hear the truths of others. We cultivate future onstage and behind-the-scenes leaders of the arts industry and more empathetic humans who are effective and compassionate communicators. And most importantly, we celebrate our differences while simultaneously discovering our shared humanity and building bridges across communities.
