Orpheum Announces 19-20 Saturday Series
The Orpheum Theatre Group is pleased to announce the lineup for the 2019-2020 Saturday Series. Series ticket packages, single and group tickets are on sale now.
With family friendly shows from as far as Brazil, Uganda, Australia, and more, this year's series is designed to share world cultures, ideas, and artistic styles from far and wide with families in the Mid-South. Whether jamming on the darbouka with Kattam from Morocco, singing along in Spanish with Mexican musician Sonia De Los Santos, or traveling "down under" with a special sensory friendly performance of a classic Australian story book tale, the Orpheum invites the whole family on a trip around the globe without ever having to leave Memphis.
"Travel, and the ability to experience rich cultures and connect with new people, allows us to celebrate and explore our differences while also understanding our shared humanity," said Jennifer McGrath, Vice President of Education. "At the Orpheum we want to make it possible for everyone to share in the enriching experiences that travel can offer, even if they are unable to get there physically."
Tickets are on sale now and available for purchase online at the official Orpheum Theatre website, orpheum-memphis.com, the Orpheum Box Office (901.525.3000), and Ticketmaster. Individual tickets are $15 and special pricing is available for groups of 10 or more by emailing email@example.com. Purchase three or more shows and save $5 per show by creating a series package.
