While theaters in Phoenix and around the country are closed due to the Coronavirus pandemic, Arizona Theatre Company is finding creative ways to entertain the public.
The organization has pivoted to adapt to the challenges it is facing. It is planning to bring six Mainstage productions back to physical stages starting in January through November of 2021. Those who subscribe to six shows will receive their tickets to the productions once dates are set. All Mainstage plays will use a professional three-camera shoot on Opening Night. Subscribers who are not comfortable returning to the theater in-person will receive a link to watch the taped show.
Arizona Theatre Company also is providing a series of digital content, online workshops and outdoor musical performances in the coming months. Its “Hang & Focus Live” is a weekly Facebook Live show and podcast that involves the community in topics of current importance. The company also is kicking off digital plays, readings, monologues and podcasts including virtual co-productions with six theater companies and various creative minds.
