Education and Outreach

Students of today are the artists of tomorrow. ATC’s Learning and Education Programs inspire creativity in schools and across the state in a number of ways, both connected to our stage and beyond our walls. Your generous support makes programs like these possible.


Student Matinees allow us to share the live theatre experience at low or no cost to young people throughout Arizona. With your support of our student matinee program we are able to offset the cost of student tickets, which allows more classes and more schools to attend.

But the learning doesn’t stop when the curtain comes down. Each Student Matinee performance is followed by a post-show discussion with members of the cast and ATC staff, and informative Play Guides are available for teachers to enhance their students’ understanding of each play.


Summer on Stage is a five-week intensive training program in performance and technical theatre that culminates in two fully realized productions performed on the main stage at the Temple of Music and Art. Arizona Theatre Company staff and professional teaching artists selected by ATC lead students through immersive training that contributes to an experience that prepares young people for a creative and engaged life in the arts or in any field!
