Returning to the Stage in a Healthy Way
We acknowledge that everything in the world has changed with the worldwide pandemic, and there is perhaps no industry more impacted than the arts. But we’re adapting every single day. We’re working with other theatres and the theatre community across the country to identify creative ways to ensure that after 54 years, Arizona Theatre Company, and THEATRE as a whole, emerges from this health crisis.
At the forefront of all our planning is you, our ATC family, and the desire to reimagine theatre that connects us in healthy ways in the midst of a constantly changing world. We couldn’t make it through this without your support and investment in our future!
Protecting the health of our audiences, artists, and staff is our first priority. ATC follows up-to-date guidelines provided by federal and state health officials city and county health departments. Realizing that requirements may change as the season unfolds, we are committed to flexibility and doing everything we can to meet the expectations of our audiences. Air purifiers have been installed throughout the theatre at the The Temple of Music and Art. Additionally, improvements have been made to the HVAC system at the Herberger Theater Center. Rest assured, information about safety requirements will be communicated as the first show date approaches.
As a League of Resident Theatres (LORT) member, Arizona Theatre Company is among 75 theatres nationwide that work with three national unions to produce plays and musicals with top-quality professional casts and crews. We are benefited by the experience and expertise of our fellow theatres across the country and have actively participated in discussions to ensure the health and safety of our audiences, artists and staff. ATC produces six unique productions each season and is the only LORT theatre in Arizona as well as the only theatre in the country that presents in two cities.
For ticket holders who are unready to return to the theatre, all Mainstage plays will be professionally recorded with three cameras on Opening Night. This means that whether you’re in the theatre or at home, your tickets let you experience the shows.
