As our community continues to navigate the COVID-19 pandemic, we are closed until further notice. The Orpheum Theatre Group prioritizes the safety of its audiences, artists, staff, and volunteers. We look forward to welcoming you back soon.
As a nonprofit arts organization, closing our doors means a substantial loss of income. Funds from tickets and concession sales make up the largest part of our revenue and are vital to our financial stability. This closure greatly affects our ability to preserve our beautiful historic theatre and to share the performing arts with everyone in the community. If you would like to make a tax-deductible donation to help us continue during this unprecedented time, you can do so here.
From education and community engagement through new participatory series to virtual performances of existing ones, we're bringing you content each week on all of our social media channels and website.
Our doors may be temporarily closed, but we still want you to experience the performing arts in exciting and engaging ways, at a time when it may be more important than ever to do so.
In June, we're bringing summer camp right into your home with virtual camps for students in grades 3-5 and 6-8. See how the community has gotten involved with our weekly Creative Challenge from our Education & Community Engagement team, or check out what our student alumni have been up to. Plus, see how regular programs are thriving virtually.
Enjoy an evening in and support local musicians with the new Virtual Voices edition of the Memphis Songwriters Series each Saturday night.
To explore all of the ways we can stay engaged, inspired, and united, learn more about our Virtual Programming and Engagement.
The staff of the Orpheum Theatre Group is working remotely. Here is how to best connect with us:
The box office cannot accept calls at this time. The voicemail at 901-525-7800 will be monitored, but we recommend email or Facebook message as the quickest way to contact the Orpheum Theatre Group.
The restaurants that support our mission need our help. As you consider your dining options over the next weeks, we hope you'll consider the many restaurants that help make entertainment and education at the Orpheum Theatre and Halloran Centre possible.
You can find more information on our Spotlight Restaurants page. We will continue to share service updates as new information becomes available. Thank you for helping our partners and the Mid-South community during these trying times.

Rising Star Camp, Broadway Boot Camp, and Mending Hearts Camp for grades 6-8 are all going virtual!

We cannot wait for you to join us in the virtual world this summer!
Visit our camp pages to learn more about each of these virtual camps, as well as details for registered and new campers. We'll also reach out via email and phone to all registered campers with additional information.
