Memphis the Musical at The Hoogland Center for the Arts
August 23 @ 8:00 pm - 10:30 pm
The Hoogland Center for the Arts is pleased to present the regional community theatre premiere of Memphis the Musical on August 23-25 & August 30-September 1. This hot new musical will be directed by Reggie Guyton.
From the underground dance clubs of 1950’s Memphis, Tennessee, comes the Tony and Olivier Award-winning musical that bursts off the stage with explosive dancing, irresistible songs and a thrilling tale of fame and forbidden love.
Inspired by actual events, Memphis is about a white radio DJ who wants to change the world and a black club singer who is ready for her big break. Come along on their incredible journey to the ends of the airwaves – filled with laughter, soaring emotion and roof-raising rock ‘n’ roll. Winner of four 2010 Tony Awards including Best Musical and two 2015 Olivier Awards, Memphis features a Tony-winning book by Joe DiPietro and a Tony-winning original score with music by Bon Jovi founding member David Bryan.
