Student of today are the Artists of tomorrow. ATC’s Learning & Education programs inspire creativity in students across the state in a number of ways, both connected to our stages and beyond our walls.
Whether you are looking for an immersive summer experience, or a theater to be involved in throughout the school year, we want you to make Arizona Theatre Company your new artistic home.
ATCteen is a free learner-driven interdisciplinary theatre education program. Our mission is to provide quality experiential learning opportunities while empowering strong leaders, developing empathetic artists, and allowing our students to explore their unique passions. Teen members can curate their educational experience by picking from a variety of classes and activities or designing their own projects.
As an ensemble,ATCteen produces two to three shows each season, at least one of which is a student written work. ATCteen shows are led by teen artistic teams comprised of student designers, technicians, directors, choreographers, music directors, conductors and more. The program is led by our ATCteen Council: a small group of dedicated students who help make the executive and artistic decisions for the program including show selection, class topics, and how we engage with the company and community.
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!
