Memphis Adds Saturday Matinee; ‘Ladies Day Out’ to Offer Special Perks


Due to popular demand, Arkansas Repertory Theatre has added an additional performance on Saturday, Sept. 27 to its four-week run of Tony Award-winning musical Memphis.

Touted as “Ladies Day Out,” the matinee will offer complimentary mimosas to ticketholders 21 years and older. Those who show school spirit by wearing their team colors to the performance will be entered into a raffle for a one-hour massage. Plus, groups of 10 or more will receive $5 off per ticket. Showtime is 2 p.m. and doors will open at 1 p.m.

Memphis opened on The Rep stage on Sept. 5 to rave reviews from audiences and critics with Little Rock Soiree saying “The chemistry of the entire cast glowed on stage, making the jokes more hilarious, the trials more tragic and the music more meaningful,” while the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette raving that it’s a “145-minute rhythm-and-blues roller coaster ride– one we didn’t want to end.”

In the Beale Street nightclubs of 1950s Memphis simmers a new sound, born of the blues, gospel and rock ‘n’ roll and birthed in the Delta. It takes a young DJ, a white man in a black world, to catapult this new sound to the airwaves of Memphis radio and into the living rooms of white Memphis. What follows is a major cultural divide that tests the boundaries of racial tension and the igniting of a musical revolution that grips the entire country.


  • $55 for “A” seating; $40 for “B” seating
  • $5 off tickets for groups of 10 or more
