Theatre Memphis is a nonprofit community theatre dedicated to producing engaging, high quality theatrical experiences for all of our participants. A Memphis arts institution since 1920, Theatre Memphis is a well-established theatre staffed with talented professionals who are also great mentors. Members of our community have the unique opportunity to learn more about theatre production and hone their talents in a professional setting while enjoying the affable spirit of a community theatre. We invite any interested member of our community to get involved either onstage, backstage or in the front of the house. We seek to engage diverse and energetic volunteer teams that comprise of many shapes, sizes, colors, genders and ages.
All cast and crew members of our productions are volunteers, but with a professional staff there are also opportunities for more extensive education and involvement through a non-paying internship. We are often able to structure an internship to fit individual needs; typical opportunities are described in the links to the left. Theatre Memphis hosts interns throughout the year. Individual internship openings and assignments are based on expected internship activity during the time requested by the applicant and the skill set of individual internship applicants. We accept interns with basic, intermediate, and advanced skills in each department.
