The story of a time in America when music brought people together — and changed the world!

From the underground dance clubs of 1950s 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. Memphis is about a white radio DJ in the 1950’s 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.

Memphis runs February 20th through March 8th in our Founders Theater.  Show times are Thursdays through Saturdays at 7:30 p.m. and Sundays at 2:30 p.m. There is also one morning performance on Tuesday, March 3rd at 10:00 a.m. Tickets are $11 -$27 and can be purchased by calling 330-836-2626 or by visiting www.weathervaneplayhouse.com (Standard ticketing fees apply).
Memphis is presented through special arrangement with and all authorized performance materials are supplied by
