About Hattiloo Theatre

Hattiloo Theatre, a 501(c)3, non-profit organization was founded in 2006. It's named in honor of Ekundayo Bandele’s two daughters: Hatshepsut (Hatti) and Oluremi (Loo). The theatre opened on September 22, 2006 in a small store-front in the Edge District of Memphis, TN.

After eight years operating with a three-person staff, staging eight productions each season, in June 2014, Hattiloo moved from its 75-seat theatre to a newly-constructed facility, debt free, and established a $500K endowment. Also, in 2016, Hattiloo entered into a lease with the City of Memphis and converted an 8,000 square foot head-start school into the Hattiloo Technical Theatre Center. In 2017, the theatre purchased and opened HattiHouse - a residential space for guest artists and interns.

As the only freestanding Black repertory theatre in five surrounding states, Hattiloo has developed a strong regional audience and is known for offering high-quality programming and performances engaging over 5,000 people each year. The artistic vision, programming and successful business model has made Hattiloo a sought-after resource nationwide.

Formatting How-To

Bold & Italics

You can make text italics or make text bold by surrounding it with underscores or double asterisks.

    _italicized text_
    **bold text**

Lists + Paragraphs

Create a bullet list by simply beginning each line with a hyphen (aka "dash") and a space. Numbered lists are similar: begin each line with a digit, dot (aka "period"), and space. Here they are working in tandem with paragraphs:

    I've been doing musical theatre for a long time. Here's some of my favorite roles:

    - "Laurie" in _Little Women_, 2015
    - "Chad" in _High School Musical_, 2010
    - "Jimmy" in _Thoroughly Modern Millie_, 2007

    Notice that sweet empty line after my list, and also after each paragraph? They are important, as you will see in a moment.

    1. I will eat all your green M&M's.
    2. I never practice at home.
    3. Kissing scenes are the best.

Leave an Empty Line

After every paragraph or list (but not after each individual item in a list), press Enter twice. This double line break starts a new paragraph or list.


The text you want to be clickable (like this) is wrapped in square brackets, while the full web address, including the http:// is wrapped in parentheses. There is no space between the closing square bracket and the opening parenthesis, like so:
