Playhouse on the Square is participating in Elvis Tribute Week Aug. 10-17, hosting a series of events that link the professional theatre group to “The King.”
What is now The Circuit Playhouse was once The Memphian Theatre, and one of Elvis Presley’s favorite hangouts. He would often rent the theatre and watch movies all night with his friends.
Playhouse on the Square will offer storytelling tours and will host a tribute concert Wednesday, Aug. 10 featuring Brad Birkedahl and his Big Band as they chronicle Elvis’s music catalogue and perform many unknown treasures.
Visit playhouseonthesquare.org for tickets and details.
