Hattiloo Theatre TicketsThis Season

Board of Directors


On the shoulders of giants. . .

Every great organization has great leders. Hattiloo is governed by a magnificent volunteer Board of Directors. Our board is a diverse cross section of the Memphis professional scene and includes some of the most respected, accomplished, and influential people in the area. Despite their busy lives and countless other commitments, the members of the Board have graced Hattiloo Theatre with 100% participation. We are extremely grateful for their generous service and commitment to Hattiloo's mission.
