Under the guidance of the Shelby County Health Department, we have established important procedures for resuming events at the Orpheum Theatre and Halloran Centre. Read all of the details.



In light of the impact that COVID-19 continues to have on our community, we are currently in the process of strategizing a plan for our 2021 program. All updated information will be shared on this page as it is available and to all previously participating schools via email. If you have any questions or require further information, do not hesitate to reach out to Sheree Stubblefield at stubblefield@orpheum-memphis.com.

The Orpheum High School Musical Theatre Awards supports, promotes, and enhances high school musical theatre throughout the Mid-South. Modeled after the Tony Awards®, the High School Musical Theatre Awards recognizes achievements in all areas of high school musical theatre and brings together hundreds of students from all over the region to share their talents and collaborate with one another.

This program is part of The Jimmy Awards®, the national high school musical theatre awards program produced by The Broadway League that includes over 40 programs from across the country.
