Tennessee Shakespeare Company revives Elizabethan dramatic literature for the mid-South through seasonal indoor and outdoor performances of the Bard's many masterpieces. Directed by Seattle Shakespeare Company's seasoned Artistic Director Stephanie Shine, Romeo and Juliet is a site-specific foray tailored to the beauty of the various lush nooks and crannies within the Dixon Gardens. The production immerses viewers in the torn world of Verona as theatrical travelers are swept along by the inexorable pull of doomed love and deep-seated grudgery. The play also has some very quotable dialogue, such as "Get thee to a chopper!" and "Noooooo!"

Voices of the South adapts the literature of Southern writers such as Eudora Welty and William Faulkner for the stage with minimal alteration, letting audiences experience books as living things that sprout leather-bound arms and legs and roam the country in search of fast cars and faster women. Sister Myotis's Bible Camp tells the comedic story of three devout Southern ladies on a mission to save souls. In addition to writing the screenplay, Steve Swift also stars as Sister Myotis, the head deaconess of an 80,000-member church who takes on backsliders, "the chronically mediocre," and, as depicted in a YouTube clip that has earned more than 2.5 million views, thongs. Accompanied by Ima Lone and Velma Needlemeyer, Sister Myotis hosts an annual women's retreat to tend the flock, coaxing wayward members with strong words and a giant licorice lasso. This performance will run at TheatreWorks, a nonprofit organization that offers low-cost office, rehearsal, and performance space for emerging artists.

Built in 1928, the historic Orpheum Theatre Memphis once housed top-tier vaudeville shows in its opulent interior, which wowed audiences with monumental chandeliers, lush tapestries, and a Mighty Wurlitzer pipe organ. After the decline of vaudeville, the Orpheum gradually succumbed to age and a hailstorm of acorns tossed by delinquent squirrels, before a $5 million restoration project in 1982 returned the theater back to its former glory days. Now the crown jewel of Memphis' entertainment venues, the Orpheum's revived interior reminds audiences of the beautiful excess of the Roaring Twenties while hosting a nonstop schedule of concerts, Broadway shows, and ballets.

Once inside, event-goers can head into the venue’s 2,100-seat auditorium, where crisp acoustics allow them to completely appreciate musicians’ notes, actors’ lines, and the bell ring of the friendly hunchback who lives in the rafters.

The consortium of professional instructors at Fred Astaire Dance Studio, which was cofounded by the legendary toe tapper himself, shepherds students of all ages and skill levels through lessons that span the style spectrum. Low-pressure private sessions allow enthusiastic teachers to fine-tune individual students' techniques and form, using their expert eyes and mechanical dancing shoes preprogrammed to do the Charleston. Patrons can learn how to cavort through classic waltz and fox-trot romps or swivel through the modern steps of salsa, swing, or samba. For dancers hoping to hoof it up in a social setting, the group practice parties provide a one-night extravaganza of instruction, demonstrations, and amateur firewalking.
