Students of today are the artists of tomorrow.

ATC’s Education programs inspire creativity in students across the state in a number of ways,
both connected to our stages and beyond our walls.

ATC Teen

ATC Teen is  a program designed with the student in mind.  We are actors, directors, writers, designers, improvisers, and theatregoers. ATC Teen brings together a diverse group of teens aged 13-18 from the Tucson area. We write, direct, and perform in our own productions, see plays from local theatre companies, explore different ATC departments through interactive workshops, and get a behind-the-scenes look at what happens at Arizona Theatre Company through workshops and interactions with professional artists.

Our mission is to teach and create world-class theatre about what it means to be alive today – inspiring curiosity, sparking empathy and joy – bringing all Arizonans together.  ATC Teen is designed to encourage the next generation of theatre audiences and professionals, preparing them to think critically and creatively about the world they live in through experience-based programming.

We offer:

  • Teen Artist Series of plays performed in a professional theatre setting
  • Student run events and fundraisers.
  • Two free tickets to Teen Preview Night for ATC productions
  • Educational events
  • Monthly theatre workshops designed just for ATC Teen members
  • And much more!

ATC Teen Members: To become an ATC Teen member, follow the link below, fill out registration form and submit the $50 membership fee. All members have the opportunity to participate in the monthly meetings and up to four projects per year, but your level of involvement and the amount of time you commit to ATC Teen each month is up to you.
