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.
