By Chloe Rabinowitz. Originally Published on

Arizona Theatre Company has unveiled its 57th season. From gripping mysteries to heartwarming love stories to joyful musicals, this season is set to be a celebration of memorable storytelling.

“The year that lies ahead for Arizona is going to be challenging on a number of fronts. I want ATC to be a bastion of relief, joy and communion for our audiences” says ATC Kasser Family Artistic Director Matt August. “This season offers a place for people to put their emotions, and leave their anxieties and find each other as neighbors and as a community. It’s a space to laugh, to love, to remember, to unite and to find peace. I am excited for ATC to be an agent for civic wellness with this thrilling season of plays and musicals.”

The 2024/2025 season will open with the classic thriller Dial M for Murder, newly adapted for a modern audience by Jeffrey Hatcher (Wait Until Dark, Holmes and Watson, Tuesdays with Morrie, Jekyll and Hyde). Passions, plot twists, and revenge come together to create the painfully perfect thriller to leave audiences on the edge of their seats from beginning to end.

Next up, ATC’s holiday extravaganza, Scrooge!, returns for its second year to welcome the magic of the season. Created by Oscar and Grammy-winning and Tony-nominated composer Leslie Bricusse (Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory), and brought to life by an all-star cast and creative team, this musical spectacular is quickly becoming a cherished holiday tradition in Arizona. ATC’s Scrooge! brings the beloved story of Ebenezer Scrooge to life in this unique musical rendition perfect for the whole family.

To kick off 2025, ATC opens Blues in the Night, a toe-tapping musical revue highlighting some of the greatest Blues artists of all time. Written by Tony and Olivier Award-nominated playwright Sheldon Epps, Blues in the Night weaves together the lives of three women as they share their stories of love, heartbreak, and triumph through 26 of the best Blues songs ever written.

The season continues with the World Premiere production of Bob & Jean: A Love Story by Pulitzer Prize- and Tony Award-winning playwright Robert Schenkkan. Inspired by the courtship of his own parents, Schenkkan forges a story of love amidst adversity during the tumult of World War II. Bob & Jean: A Love Story is a stirring romance that reminds us that destiny and a bit of hard work have the power to bring us back to the ones we love.

Finally, Ms. Holmes and Ms. Watson – Apt. 2B by Kate Hamill closes out the season with a modern “gal-pal” twist on Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s iconic detective duo. This adventure comedy takes our dynamic duo through hilarious hijinks as they uncover multiple murder mysteries plotted by a cunning supervillain who remains always one step ahead.
