It is Kid's Night

This past Thursday was the Orpheum's first Kid's Night on Broadway for the new season. Kids visited the Orpheum to see the magical Cirque Holidaze. Each kid got a free ticket with the purchase of an adult ticket which is a great deal! And, there were games, face painting, balloons and prizes for every kid that came through the door.

Our next Kid's Night on Broadway is during the Wizard of Oz. Be sure to check it out. It is a great, inexpensive way to expose children to Arts and Broadway. Call 901-525-7800 for more information.

Here are some pictures of Kid's Night during Cirque.

The Holidays are Upon Us

So this week, Memphis kicked off the Holidays with some cold weather. Temperatures in the 40s always mean that everyone will be complaining but on a good note that the Holiday Season is here!

In order to keep people thinking positively about the Holiday weather, the Orpheum had Cirque Dreams Holidaze come to Memphis! I personally saw the show last night and met some of the wonderfully, talented cast members. The show was a success. The talent, flexibility and amazement of the acrobats in the show made for an awesome performance! If you have not seen it yet you should go. The tightrope act was my personal favorite and I found myself holding my breath the entire time!

Following last night's show was a Cast Party at the Silly Goose. Almost all the cast and crew were present and very friendly. Even the little boy in the show stopped by. One of the cast members has been doing these 'cirque' shows since he was six and he is now in his forties. Needless to say he was very talented! Special thanks to Silly Goose for hosting the Cast Party.
