Hattiloo Theatre Prepares For Grand Re-opening On Saturday, June 28, 2014

Concerts, Forums, and Films All Free to the Public in Celebration
MEMPHIS, Tenn. - June 26, 2014 - PRLog -- Hattiloo Theatre, founded by nationally recognized Ekundayo Bandele, has become a regional institution and will re-open on June 28, 2014.  The theatre has a full day slated for events including children performances, short film presentations, a panel discussion and concerts.  Events start at 10:00 a.m. and continue until midnight and are free to the public on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Hattiloo Theatre is a black repertory theatre company that stages at least seven major productions and six special performances every season.  It is also one of the very few free standing, independent black theatres in the country.  The goal is to highlight the diversity of Black artistic expression, including music, theatre, and dance.

Bandele formed the sixth freestanding black repertory company in America six years ago in a Marshall Avenue storefront. In June of 2013, Hattiloo broke ground for the new theatre.  The facility will feature two stages for large and smaller shows and a total space of 10,600 square feet at 37 Cooper Street (at Cooper and Monroe) in Memphis, TN.

β€œAt Hattiloo we believe that understanding and valuing cultural diversity are the keys to countering racism,” said Bandele.  β€œAll individuals must feel free to explore the uniqueness of their culture and identity while developing understandings of the cultural diversity that exists in the world around them. Hattiloo has become a home for actors and actresses to just that.”
