Theatre Memphis Announces Season for 2023-24

Memphis, TN – Theatre Memphis has announced its 2023-24 season with a season decidedly dedicated to women-centric content, plots, performers, playwrights, composers, directors, and   more. All take a bow in the varied selections presented for Memphis patrons. Theatre Memphis Executive Producer Debbie Litch says, “As we were putting together our new season we found we were drawn to compelling stories and options that were featuring strong female stories, performances and direction. We felt it led us to a concept to pursue by being very deliberate about our choices that would entertain the community and celebrate women’s contributions and stories.” Litch adds, “It is so heartwarming to know that our patrons are coming back in record numbers. We feel that our attention to programming, consistent artistic quality, affordable tickets and our recent renovation have all led to this success.”

Presented by First Horizon Foundation, the 2023 – 24 season will include a full range of musicals, dramas, comedies and new works. The 411 seat proscenium Lohrey Theatre will kick off the season with the musical comedy Sister Act. This poplar show has the sisters in a convent literally finding their own voices as they are affected by someone in hiding amongst them. Nöel Coward’s Blithe Spirit, will follow in the lineup, a comedic story about a deceased ex-wife that is inadvertently summoned and who haunts her husband and his current wife. A moving story of  a black family’s determination to improve their situation comes to the stage in January 2024 with the classic A Raisin in the Sun by Lorraine Hansberry. The touching and entertaining Beautiful: The Carole King Musical comes to charm the stage in March. The season will end with the emotional and moving comedic drama Steel Magnolias opening in April and, finally in June, the magical Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Cinderella, a musical of the fairytale story of rags to riches. Though not part of the season membership package, the family favorite, A Christmas Carol*, will be performed as a special holiday offering in December for the 46th consecutive year at Theatre Memphis.

The 100 seat black box Next Stage season leads off in September with the highly dramatic Arthur Miller’s The Crucible, based on the Salem witch trials. In November a relatively new work, Silent Sky by Lauren Gunderson, is offered that follows the amazing journey of females pioneering in the field of astronomy before The Glass Menagerie, a Tennessee Williams classic, will be presented in February 2024. The last show of the season in the Next Stage will be the riveting Master Class, a Terrence McNally masterpiece featuring opera diva Maria Callas in all her glamour and caustic demeanor, teaching and reminiscing her triumphs, loves and sacrifices.
