Memphis is a Great Town for Theatre!

Memphis is a Great Town for Theatre!Some of my smartest Memphis Callboard colleagues put their heads together and made a list of ALL the local theatre companies in Memphis. Some are community efforts, others are professional, some are performing arts venues. All contribute to making our ever-growing arts community so much fun!

I hope this covers them all. Please forgive us if we left anyone out.
