Built in 1989 as a project intended to help revitalize the Phoenix downtown area, the Herberger Theater Center has grown into a well-loved arts space and performance venue. Three resident companies share the space: The Arizona Theatre Company, Center Dance Ensemble, and iTheatre Collaborative. Some of their outreach programs for children include Theater Camp and Wolf Trap, the first focusing on homeless, abused and neglected teens and the second on preschool-aged children.
