Playhouse on the Square

Enriching lives through theatre.

Welcome to Memphis' Playhouse on the Square, the historic and locally loved performing arts center that is a part of Circuit Playhouse Inc, which also owns Circuit Playhouse (or The Evergreen Theatre) and TheatreWorks at the Square.

This performing arts company has put on 884 shows since opening in 1969, starting their dazzling career with a performance of The Fantasticks. Today you will see popular on and off-Broadway shows such as Kinky Boots, Peter Pan, Little Shop of Horrors, and much more each season. You will also see regular resident performances by Ballet Memphis, the Memphis Symphony Orchestra, and Opera Memphis.

One of our favorite things about the theater production center(s) is the fantastic education options available to students near and far. When visiting the Playhouse on the Square your group can take part in several different classes, workshops, and performances themselves, with ample educational resources available for parents and teachers.

We highly suggest you take a tour of the theater, see either a School Matinee or evening performance, and consider taking part in any workshops that may be happening during your visit. The theater offers various workshop programs that include audition and technical workshops, theatre professional Q&A's, and cast Meet and Greets. You can even schedule a reception with the cast before an evening production during your visit! Playhouse Pre-Roll 1080p HD
