Discover the Extraordinary World of Arizona Theatre Company – A Great American Regional Theatre
Welcome to Arizona Theatre Company, where we don’t just stage productions … we create cultural experiences that resonate far beyond the curtain. As a vibrant nonprofit and the Official State Theatre of Arizona since 1966, we are a hub where creativity thrives and art takes center stage.
Setting the gold standard for artistic excellence and innovation, ATC is Arizona’s sole LORT (League of Resident Theatres) professional nonprofit regional theatre. Guided by the vision of Executive Director Geri Wright and Kasser Family Artistic Director Matt August, each season we assemble a team of world-class artists dedicated to delivering exceptional theatrical experiences to the communities of Tucson and Greater Phoenix.
Our impact goes beyond the footlights. With a commitment to outreach, education, and community engagement, ATC reaches over 130,000 patrons annually through mainstage productions, student matinees, and community initiatives – including our National Latine Playwrights Award and Festival. We believe in the transformative power of art, and our education programs ignite young minds, sow seeds of inspiration, and cultivate the artists and audiences of tomorrow.
Join us as we share the magic of theatre, transcending boundaries and connecting with schools, communities, and curious minds. Arizona Theatre Company is not just a place for entertainment; it’s a cultural cornerstone, a catalyst for creativity, and a testament to the enduring power of the arts. Come be a part of the experience!
