For All

Here at Arizona Theatre Company in the Learning and Education Department, we strongly believe that theater education is for everyone. Whether its an audience member engaging more deeply with a shows themes or an actor who wants to learn to be a teacher, we have programs for continued learning that might be a good fit for you.

Post-Show Discussions | Teaching Artist Apprenticeship | Internships | Veterans Playwriting Project| Request a Teaching Artist


Led by a member of ATC staff, post-show discussions are lively conversations between actors and audience about the play and its performance. Post-show discussions are offered after select regular performances and all Student Matinees.
