A gripping thriller from the author of Dial M For Murder.
Don’t let Susan Hendrix’s quaint Greenwich Village apartment fool you; hidden within is a treasure for which conmen would kill. Susan, tragically blinded in an automobile accident, unwittingly becomes the key player in a dangerous game threatening all she holds dear. Employing disguise and deception, two crooks become increasingly desperate and depraved, but must wait until dark to play out this classic thriller’s chilling conclusion. Spellbinding theatre as only ATC can do it.

The perfect blend of music, mayhem and murder! In this hilarious 90-minute tour-de-force, 2 performers play 13 roles—not to mention the piano—in a witty and winking homage to old-fashioned murder mysteries. Currently running off-Broadway to critical raves and packed houses, The New York Times calls Murder for Two “INGENIOUS! A snazzy double-act that spins out a comic mystery animated by funny, deftly turned songs.” You won’t want to miss this killer musical comedy!

It’s April 27, 1994. In Yorba Linda, California, the five living Presidents – Gerald Ford, Jimmy Carter, George H. W. Bush, Ronald Reagan and Bill Clinton – gather in a conference room to wait for the start of Richard Nixon’s funeral. A loving, witty and touching speculation on what may have happened at this true-life event, Five Presidents gives us a humanizing and unforgettable look at five great men trying to find relevance after being the most powerful people in the world.

ATC’s first ever production of Shakespeare’s poetic masterpiece.
Jealousy. Prejudice. Betrayal. And the chance that true love could actually conquer all. Romeo and Juliet comes to vibrant life through the inventive talents of award-winning director Kirsten Brandt and designer David Lee Cuthbert, whose state-of-the-art scenery, lighting and projections bring new life to the warring world of the Capulets and Montagues. Romeo and Juliet like you’ve never seen before!
“Bold, ambitious, and stirring...Brandt has become a disciplined and inventive theatrical storyteller.” – San Diego Union-Tribune
Written by Herbert Siguenza
Based on the writings of Pablo Picasso
Tucson: April 4 – April 26, 2015

The work of Pablo Picasso forever changed the way that the world looks at art. This one-man show, written by and starring the astonishing actor and artist Herbert Siguenza, will forever change the way that you think about Picasso. In a performance that explodes with color, Picasso’s most intimate thoughts rip through the air with each thundering brushstroke as Siguenza creates six new masterpieces live on stage in this Arizona premiere. He rages, dances, takes a bath, admonishes, philosophizes, scolds – and paints, right in front of you.
“...an utterly engaging portrait of an artist at work. Don’t miss it!” – SDGLN
