For 90 years, Main and Beale has been one of Memphis' premier entertainment destinations. In August 2018, we'll be offering six opportunities to tour the historic Orpheum Theatre and its sister venue, the modern Halloran Centre for Performing Arts & Education.

As you make your way through the opulent art deco rooms of the Orpheum, our docents will tell you the history of this incredible building. Learn about how dedicated Memphians in the early 1980s saved the theatre from demolition. Delight in the colorful and creative murals that stars and productions have painted on the backstage walls. Find out how much you really know about Mary, our sweet and mischevious little ghost.

Next door at the Halloran Centre, you'll see how we put our nonprofit mission into practice. The 39,000-square-foot venue is the home of our education programs and second venue. Learn how this beautiful and state-of-the-art building serves 50,000 students, teachers, and families each year. And if you haven't seen a show at the Halloran Centre, you'll see why so many performers and music lovers enjoy the intimate performances and listening experiences.

Tours will take place at 10am and 12pm on the following Mondays: Aug. 13, Aug. 20, and Aug. 27.

Admission is $10 per person, cash only at the door (no admission fee is required for children younger than 5). Please plan to arrive in the Orpheum Theatre's outer lobby, outside the box office, at least 15 minutes before your preferred tour. All proceeds benefit our nonprofit mission.


Tours last for approximately 60 minutes. Please remember that the Orpheum and Halloran Centre are working venues, and some spaces may not always be available. To inquire about booking a private tour for 20 or more, please contact Joy Truly Brown at 901-524-4234 or [email protected] at least one week before your preferred tour date. Tours of more than 20 cannot be accommodated at our regularly scheduled tour times.
