LilyRoze Studios will serve as an all-in-one television, film, music, art, fashion and dance production center. It’s the brainchild of 22-year-old playwright and college student Nadia Matthews.  Known for her entertaining plays, Matthews has even made an appearance on the “Tyra Banks Show.”

“I want to create a Hollywood type atmosphere where Memphians can work and train like professional entertainers,” said Matthews.

The 2,500 sq.-ft. building will include a mini movie theatre, photography studio, fashion/modeling, mobile computer lab, green screen, conference room, dance/fitness studio, recording studio, stage/runway, lounges, art gallery, gift shop, concession bar, and Wi-Fi.

LilyRoze studio will offer training for children starting at three years old, and welcomes any adults looking for something to do in their free time.

“This is also a great place for those inspiring entertainers looking for a way to get their name out there,” said Matthews. “Internships and volunteers are also welcomed. They will have the opportunity to assist the production and office staff with a variety of tasks,” said Matthews.

The grand opening will run from Sept. 17 through Sept. 22, with the studio open from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. for studio tours and registration each day.
