Here’s your chance to get the “star’s view” of the Orpheum! Enter through the famous “Stage Door” on Beale Street and experience life backstage while enjoying food from Central BBQ, Gus’s Fried Chicken, and Frost.  A specialty cocktail will be provided by Buster’s, beer will be available from Memphis Made Brewing Company and Ghost River Brewing, and there will be a cash bar for other drink needs. VIP ticket holders will also enjoy food from The Majestic Grille as well as a private bar with complimentary wine and beer. Everyone is encouraged to dance to live music by The Super 5 on the iconic Orpheum stage!

The poster art is generously donated by local artist Billy Moore.  The original painting will be included in the silent auction the night of the event.

Proceeds benefit The Orpheum Theatre’s mission and community based programming.

The winner of the vehicle assumes all license fees, local, state and federal taxes (including, but not limited to, income taxes, gift taxes and sales taxes based on the value of the car), which must be paid when the car is transferred to the winner. The Orpheum Theatre takes no responsibility for any tax liabilities. This offer is void where prohibited by law, and all federal, state and local laws and regulations apply.

All proceeds benefit our future Centre for Performing Arts & Education.

The Centre, which is under construction next door to the south of the Theatre, will be that one missing element that has separated The Orpheum from the other major performing arts facilities across the country. With this added space we will be able to increase the number of young people and families that we have involved in our nineteen programs - currently 70,000 to upwards of 100,000 by 2016. And, grow the overall programming of the Theatre.
