On the page across from this letter is a note I received from a girl named Liberty. I have read little Liberty’s letter a dozen times, and each time I get more determined to keep the Orpheum focused on giving our next generation a chance to be the best they can be. For most children, attending their first live theatre performance is an experience they remember all their lives. Live theatre inspires children. It teaches them to reach for their goals. It fosters creativity and a sense of community. The Orpheum believes that all children should have an opportunity to experience live theatre. So each year, the Theatre provides meaningful arts experiences for kids from City, County, private, and parochial schools through the many valuable programs offered by our Education and Community Department. Liberty’s letter constantly reminds me of all the reasons the Memphis Development Foundation and the Orpheum Staff are committed to the creation of the Orpheum’s new Centre for Performing Arts. More than a place to congregate, the new Centre will be a place where children preschool through college will find opportunity – experience working with other kids from every nook and cranny in the Mid-South. Not just learning to perform, but being part of a team that works together to make something that resembles a dream – a happy time. Liberty was rewarded for sending me her letter. Her entire class of 3rd graders was invited to attend one of the Orpheum’s Student Matinee shows and see something spectacular on the stage. Yes we’ll see Liberty and all of the other Liberty’s in our new Centre where magic can indeed happen and dreams can come true. In the coming months you’ll be hearing a lot about our new Centre and all the wonderful programming we will offer. We hope we can count on your support. Together we can build a brighter future for our children

ARTHUR LAURENTS (Book, Director). His first play, Home of the Brave, opened on Broadway in 1945, followed by many others. His newest plays are A Key Change and Come Back, Come Back, Wherever You Are, starring Shirley Knight and Alison Fraser. These came right on the heels of his New Year’s Eve starring Marlo Thomas and Keith Carradine at his favorite theatre, the George Street Playhouse in New Brunswick. He wrote his first musical, West Side Story, in 1957, followed by Gypsy and others. His first screenplay was The Snake Pit in 1948, followed by others including Rope, Anastasia, The Way We Were and The Turning Point. His own play, Invitation to a March in 1960, was the first of several he directed. I Can Get It for You Wholesale in 1961 was the first musical he directed, followed by others including La Cage aux Folles and Gypsy with Angela Lansbury, then Tyne Daly and most recently, Patti LuPone. In 2000, he wrote a memoir, Original Story By. His latest book, Mainly on Directing: West Side Story, Gypsy, and Other Musicals, was published in March 2009. His posthumous memoir The Rest of the Story is currently slated for publication in 2012. LEONARD BERNSTEIN (Music) (1918– 1990). Composer, conductor, author, teacher and recording artist, Bernstein transformed the way Americans and people everywhere hear and appreciate music. A few of his many compositions include the symphonies Jeremiah and The Age of Anxiety, the theatre piece Mass, Chichester Psalms, Divertimento, the film score for On the Waterfront, the ballets Fancy Free and Facsimile and the operas Trouble in Tahiti and A Quiet Place. He was music director of the New York Philharmonic from 1958 to 1969 and, over his lifetime, conducted many of the major orchestras of the world. His Broadway musicals include Wonderful Town, Candide, 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue and the immensely popular West Side Story. STEPHEN SONDHEIM (Lyrics) wrote the music and lyrics for Saturday Night, A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum, Anyone Can Whistle, Company, Follies, A Little Night Music, The Frogs, Pacific Overtures, Sweeney Todd, Merrily We Roll Along, Sunday in the Park With
