IntrepidArts: June in Memphis 
Cultural vitamins for your brain and soul
Kudos Tenn Shakespeare
Tennessee Shakespeare Company was recently announced as one of only four professional regional theatre companies to receive both the Shakespeare in American Communities-Schools grant and Shakespeare in American Communities-Juvenile Justice grant from the National Endowment for the Arts and Arts Midwest. TSC receives the $25,000 matching grant for its innovative Romeo and Juliet Project in Memphis area schools. The Project is a four-part, in-school residency taught and performed in partnership with multiple area school systems. This comprehensive, anti-violence teaching/performance
residency will be led by a diverse consortium of Teaching-Artists and delivered to more than
5,000 students in over 20 schools, most of which are defined as Title 1. Students will receive an
immersive, 90-minute stage production of Romeo and Juliet followed by a 10-minute
audience/actor talkback
Memphis Symphony
The symphony presented a varied and generally fabulous performance for Memorial Day at the Levitt Shell. So great to see and hear this outstanding group live and in person again. 
 
Gore & Gore Recap
I hope you were able to attend the wonderful sibling, duo show at the Medicine Factory in April. The new works of Kat Gore and Sanford Gore attracted an appreciative crowd for the opening. You can see a photo spread from that night in the current issue of 4Memphis Magazine.
