The University of Memphis Department of Theatre & Dance is proud to announce their Fall 2020 Jubilee season: A mix of virtual and outdoor performances created specifically for the age of the coronavirus. Join us online for two filmed and streamed theater pieces and a zoom-based comedy show, and walk the campus with us, experiencing site-specific performances inspired by Black Memphis History. UofM joins theaters nationwide in Jubilee: A year-long celebration of performances generated by individuals that have been historically excluded from our country's stages.
