Just released, the Orpheum's 2015-2016 Season

On Saturday, March 28th, the Orpheum Theatre formally announced its highly-anticipated 2015-2016 Broadway Season.

By popular demand, THE BOOK OF MORMON, which played a record breaking one-week run in 2014, returns to Memphis for a limited engagement March 15 – 20, 2016 as an option.  Ticket package holders receive priority ticket opportunities to all shows, so adding THE BOOK OF MORMON to a season package is the best way to guarantee seats to this award-winning production.  

“We’re very proud of this year’s selection of shows,” said Orpheum President and CEO Pat Halloran.  “This exciting season offers patrons everything: Broadway hits, Tony Award winners, comedies, family-friendly productions, and several Memphis premieres.”

For the first time, the Orpheum will also offer a “Pick 4” Season Ticket Holder option in addition to its full Season Ticket Package.  Season ticket holders may choose four or all six shows to complete a customized package.  THE BOOK OF MORMON may be included in either season ticket package as an add-on.
