Bringing Theatre to All Arizonans
Arizona Theatre Company puts our artists and audience at the heart of all we do. ATC’s performances bring people together on our stages to experience essential stories about what it means to be alive today, from reimagined classics to contemporary plays, original works, and innovative musicals fostering continued conversation beyond the theatre walls.
Founded in 1966 and celebrating its 54th season, ATC is led by The Kasser Family Artistic Director Sean Daniels and Managing Director Geri Wright. ATC operates in two major cities, unlike any other LORT theatre in the country and is recognized as the official State theatre.
Each season, ATC collaborates with world-class artists to create productions and programs about what it means to be alive today, inspiring curiosity and sparking joy, bringing all Arizonans together.
ATC shares the power of theatre through a variety of outreach programs, educational opportunities, access initiatives, and community events. Including our nationally recognized ATCteen program and National Latinx Playwright Award, ATC focuses on training artists, audience, and community members about the creative power of theatre reaching far beyond the metropolitan areas of Tucson and Phoenix, enriching the theatre learning experience for all.
