From Where I Stand is a theatrical storytelling project featuring nine students from partner organizations including Facing History and Ourselves, Shelby County Schools, Stax Music Academy, Cazateatro Bilingual Theatre, and the Refugee Empowerment Program.  Using their own personal stories, these students have collaborated to create a live theatrical performance for the public on Wednesday, April 24 at 7pm in the Halloran Centre for free.

“We believe that the voices of young people in Memphis matter and that everyone’s story deserves to be told,” said Jennifer McGrath, Vice President of Education. “We want the Orpheum Theatre Group to be a place where everyone has a platform to share their experience in their own voice and we believe in cultivating a variety of mediums and programs to do that.”
