We know you come to The Orpheum to see the highest quality theatrical experiences, so through the generous sponsorship of our friends at Harrah’s Tunica, we’ve put together a delightful mix of new productions and Mid-South favorites.
We kick off the season with BILLY ELLIOT THE MUSICAL, the inspirational and uplifting story of a young boy who follows his dream by trading his boxing gloves for ballet shoes. Next we have CATCH ME IF YOU CAN, the true story of Frank Abagnale Jr. who successfully conned millions of dollars worth of checks as a Pan Am pilot, a doctor, and a legal prosecutor, all before his 19th birthday. The internationally acclaimed extravaganza, BLUE MAN GROUP, along with the dazzling heartwarming Disney classic, MARY POPPINS, and the splendid new production of Cole Porter’s ANYTHING GOES are sure to thrill audiences young and old alike.
The JERSEY BOYS will be working their way back to The Orpheum, along with the show that won our hearts, MEMPHIS. If you’ve already seen these fine productions and prefer not to include one or both in your season package, you may “opt-out”. As an “opt-in”, but for one weekend only, we are bringing you ROCK OF AGES, the rock ‘n’ roll romance told through the heart-pounding hits of Def Leppard, Joan Jett, Journey, Foreigner, Bon Jovi, Night Ranger, REO Speedwagon, Pat Benatar, Poison, Whitesnake, and more.
The support of our season ticket holders helps us bring the best of Broadway entertainment to the Mid-South while enhancing cultural life in our community, and preserving the beautiful Orpheum Theatre for future generations. With these great shows in The Orpheum’s 2012-2013 Broadway Season, and with more benefits than ever before, there’s never been a better time to become a season ticket holder!
On behalf of the Board of Directors, I whole-heartedly thank you for your patronage and support and I look forward to seeing you for another exciting season at The Orpheum!
