Since 1996, the Buckman Performing Arts Center has inspired the Memphis arts scene through creative programming that features a rich variety of internationally renowned artists, dancers and musicians. Buckman audiences have come to expect the unexpected, while reveling in the daring and provocative offerings they find on The Rose Theater stage.

With a reputation as a home for eclectic music and contemporary dance in the most intimate of settings, it is the premiere performance venue uniting the Memphis community through the visual and performing arts.

The William H. Rose Theater seats between 288 and 328 in a sloped floor arrangement. The decorative and acoustically engineered wall treatments create a rich blended acoustical tone in the theater. A complex system of catwalks, rigging and adjustable lighting support a variety of performances. The main stage area has a resilient “sprung”  high-quality, wood floor, as well as a sectional marley covering for the dance performance.

Buckman’s also offers opportunities for all ages to participate in the arts! Join them for one of their exciting classes including piano, voice lessons, a variety of dance classes and acting.
