Arizona Theatre Company’s mission is to create world-class theatre about what it means to be alive today –
inspiring curiosity and creativity, sparking empathy and joy – bringing all Arizonans together.
Arizona Theatre Company’s vision is to transform the lives of every Arizonan through the power of theatre.
Known as Arizona’s State Theatre, Arizona Theatre Company is celebrating 54 Years. Each year more than 130,000 people experience world-class theatre at the historic Temple of Music and Art in Tucson, and the elegant Herberger Theater Center in downtown Phoenix.
Each season of high-quality productions reflects the rich variety of world theatre – from classic to contemporary plays, from musicals to new works. Audiences enjoy the rich emotional experience and joy that can only be captured through live theatre. ATC is the preeminent professional theatre in the state of Arizona. Under the direction of Artistic Director Sean Daniels and Managing Director Geri Wright, ATC operates in two cities – unlike any other League of Resident Theaters (LORT) company in the country.
ATC shares the passion of the theatre through a wide array of outreach programs, educational opportunities, access initiatives, and community events. With more than 800 Education & Engagement activities through the schools and summer programs, ATC focuses on teaching Arizona’s youth about the creative power of dramatic literature and how it can enrich their own lives in multiple ways
ATC reaches far beyond the metropolitan areas of Tucson and Phoenix, enriching the theatre learning experience for current and future audiences.
