Like most in our community, the staff of the Orpheum Theatre Group has watched events unfold across the country, and within our own city. After meaningful conversations as colleagues, we have chosen not to remain silent. On June 3, we shared an important statement that expresses our feelings and commitments:
Our staff leaned into the discomfort of a difficult and necessary discussion. We are examining our history and the role we play in dismantling racism.
We have hard work ahead of us. As we move forward, we are committed to listening to and elevating voices that have been systemically silenced.
The Orpheum Theatre Group stands in solidarity with the Black and Brown community and the anti-racism movement.
The mission of the Orpheum Theatre Group is to enhance the communities we serve by utilizing the performing arts to entertain, educate and enlighten while preserving the historic Orpheum Theatre and the Halloran Centre for Performing Arts & Education.
The Orpheum Theatre Group will strive to be a world-class performing arts organization, serving as a cultural beacon and catalyst for positive change.
