Mission: Actors Theatre of Phoenix presents contemporary professional theatre that amplifies the cultural conversation of our communities with powerful and innovative programming. Our vision is to be known as the most significant progressive voice in art and culture in Metro Phoenix. Our company will be a model of sustainability that supports a healthy and vibrant community through our artistic productions. We will be leaders in creating dialogue about contemporary issues.
Actors Theatre is unique in that they are a professional company that does plays that you wouldn't necessarily call mainstream. Phoenix doesn't have anything like that and it desperately needs it. I could tell you how personally their productions have moved me to tears ("OPUS" and "NEXT FALL" come very quickly to mind), made me laugh while thinking ("BOOM!"), or just laugh ("FOX ON THE FAIRWAY"), but what I would rather tell you is that AT gives to Phoenix far more than it takes. It is my strongest hope that they are able to stay around for a long long time.
