Memphis, TN – Theatre Memphis has created the Theatre Memphis Priscilla Presley Scholarship to honor the contributions that Priscilla Presley has made to the arts community and to underscore the commitment she has made to helping artists pursue their heart’s desire. The scholarship, to be awarded annually, will be for up to $2,500 to make an artistic dream come true when the aspiring designee is working to advance an aspect(s) of performance art through education or training, thereby, fostering the ongoing growth of community arts in Memphis and the MidSouth. The deadline for entertaining applications for the scholarship has been extended to September 16, 2022. Details about the scholarship and applications forms are online at https://theatrememphis.org/outreach-and-education/scholarships/. Contributions to the scholarship fund may be made online at https://theatrememphis.org/donate/theatre-memphis-priscilla-presley-scholarship/or by calling 901.682.8601 or sending contributions to: Scholarship Fund c/o Theatre Memphis 630 Perkins Extd. Memphis, TN 39117.

Theatre Memphis Executive Producer, Debbie Litch, said the deadline extension was made to give more people the chance to get to know about the scholarship. She elaborated, “Since we recently formed this scholarship to honor the wonderful things Priscilla has done for our community, we felt the community deserved to have a little more time to access the information … especially since this is not just an “educational” offer, but also valid for “vocational” opportunities.”

Perkins Extended @ Southern Avenue and is a community theatre whose mission it is to provide outstanding theatrical experiences to enrich the lives of our diverse audiences, participants and community.

Theatre Memphis receives funding from ArtsMemphis and the Tennessee Arts Commission.
