“Professional Theater in Tucson”
Reviewed 25 January 2013

The Arizona Theater Company benefits from the ability to hold performances in both Tucson and Phoenix (the latter a much larger city). Performances are sometimes created by the ATC; others are shared with other professional theater companies elsewhere in the nation. Some of the performances (generally six per season) are more appealing to us than others, but the sets and acting are with few exceptions excellent. The renovated period building where performances are held, the Temple of Music and Art, is itself worth the trip. Prices are reasonable both for season tickets and for single performances.

“You will always have a quality theater experience”
Reviewed 6 January 2013

ATC programs a variety of themes, some traditional, and some contemporary. They push the envelope in their programming, but always in a thoughtful way. Regardless of what you see, you'll have something to talk about. The set design, lighting, and sound are always top notch - without exception. I attend about 3 times each season and am always glad I went.

“Enjoyed Jane Austin's Emma”
Reviewed 1 January 2013

We purchased seats on line and found them to be excellent. The mid-sized theater provides comfortable seating with good views of the stage. The musical production was performed well--the songs were cute and humorous as is the play. All of the characters were well-chosen for the parts they played, but the actor playing Emma was exceptional. Enjoyed the afternoon performance & would purchase ticket to another performance when in Tucson.

“Emma”
Reviewed 22 December 2012

We went to Tucson to see a new production of Emma at ATC. ATC has a beautiful, old and restored theatre which was a perfect place to see a lovely musical.

“First Rate Theater”
Reviewed 13 December 2012

I've been a subscriber at the ATC for years and, probably like any theater company, they've had hits and misses. But even the plays I didn't like were very well done. The quality of the acting, directing and staging is always excellent. I highly recommend the ATC.
