Engage, Enrich, Empower

Community is everything. We here at Theatre Memphis know this more than most as we are a community theatre in the true sense of the phrase. We could not do what we do without, you, the community. This is why we are dedicated to our mentorship programs, both in house and in the community. Empowering the next generation of theatre lovers and community builders.
