Looks like indie performing artists in Memphis will soon have a new place to do their thing.

The TheatreWorks Board of Directors and Circuit Playhouse, Inc. are proud to announce that TheatreWorks is expanding to include The Evergreen Theatre (formerly Circuit Playhouse). TheatreWorks will continue to be able to fulfill its mission to provide affordable space to new and emerging artists. There will now be additional opportunities for artists to produce non-commercial work and to succeed or fail without fear of financial strain. Because of its prior success, TheatreWorks has been booked two years in advance. Now, due to Circuit Playhouse moving into the space formerly occupied by Playhouse on the Square and because of grants from ARTSMEMPHIS, the Community Foundation of Greater Memphis and a generous gift from the Jeniam Foundation to fund a feasibility study, Fred Harpell, the Facility Manager for TheatreWorks, will become manager of both Evergreen and TheatreWorks and will book both facilities. Resident companies of TheatreWorks will have priority in booking time slots, but there will now be space available at both the "old" TheatreWorks and the "new" Evergreen. These changes will take place in April of 2010. Contact theatrework@aol.com.

Cool!
