Background

Arizona Theatre Company, under the new executive leadership of David Ivers (Artistic Director) and Billy Russo (Managing Director) is the Official State Theatre of Arizona and is the only fully professional producing theatre in the state and the only LORT theatre to operate in two cities.

Founded by Sandy Rosenthal in Tucson in 1967 as the Arizona Civic Theatre, ATC achieved professional status in 1972, when it began hiring Actors’ Equity performers on a modified League of Resident Theatres (LORT) contract. The Arizona Civic Theatre began presenting a portion of its season in Phoenix in 1978, and a year later the name was changed to Arizona Theatre Company. As the professional resident theatre of Arizona, ATC has been performing full seasons in both Tucson and Phoenix to a combined audience of more than 150,000 since 1983.

During the most recently completed 50th Anniversary Season, ATC had a record-breaking year, ending with an operating surplus in the high six figures and setting the organization toward renewed fiscal health. A new Fund for Working Capital has been established to build upon the excitement of the new leadership team and to provide adequate capitalization needed to support a new artistic vision.
