Arizona Theatre Company is 50 years old and continues to bring great professional plays and theatre to Arizona audiences, both in Tucson and Phoenix. It is well worth getting season's tickets, as it is often heard from those that go regularly that they've seldom seen a bad show at ATC. Classic works and new plays, comedies, musicals and dramas, as well as award-winning productions. Along with great acting, you will also find that ATC does set design, costumes and other technical aspects with perfection in mind. You will walk into the theatre eager for the curtain to rise and for the show to start. Whether you see something thought provoking, moving or simply fun, all the productions bring the same professionalism and quality to the stage.
THIS IS A LIST OF THE ATC 2018/2019 SEASON SHOWS
ERMA BOMBECK - AT WIT'S END:
November 15 - December 2, 2018 - This is a wonderful tribute to writer and journalist Erma Bombeck. She used her wit and humor to share the world of the housewife and mother with the world and her truth was a revelation!
THE MUSIC MAN:
January 5 - January 27, 2019 - This tale of con and hope, and the power of music and make-believe continues to reach us and make us smile. Return to the wonderful music and charm of The Music Man.
