Playhouse on the Square is Memphis’ largest resident professional theatre company servicing the entire Mid-South. Between our two main stage venues: Playhouse on the Square and The Circuit Playhouse we offer 14 performances a year. With additional performances in our black box space TheatreWorks@TheSquare and annual events such as the Playhouse on the Square Original Art Auction and Great Wine Performances. The Circuit Playhouse was formally known as the historic Memphian Theater, Elvis Presley's favorite movie theater. Throughout the year we serve a broad community representing every age, race, gender, orientation, and socio-economic family. Our mission is to produce a challenging and diverse repertoire of theatrical work that speaks to the intelligence, the soul, and the imagination of the Memphis community. We also take our show “on the road” offering theatre education outreach and touring productions through each calendar year culminating with Summer Youth Theatre Conservatory.
Nestled in the heart of Memphis’ Theatre District, the revitalized Overton Square, Playhouse on the Square takes its role as leader in the Memphis Arts community seriously fostering in a new era of performing arts.
