Look no further than LaRita Shelby if you’re in need of a voice to express the understanding that theater is a vehicle for telling stories and that “our stories give us the power to transform ourselves and others.”
Shelby, former Memphian, actress, singer, writer, broadcaster and media professional, has been named honorary chairperson of the second biennial Women’s Theatre Festival of Memphis (WTFM) August 7-9.
“I got my start in the theatre in Memphis and received exemplary training,” said Shelby, who has appeared on the air, on stages and on screens around the globe. “I accept this honor with a charge to build domestic and global cohesiveness within the creative community, and to forge new alliances among those in the creative and performing arts.”
