Actors Theatre is THE unique theatre in Phoenix and is the only company that produces cutting edge plays that amuse, provoke, educate, and, in general, takes audiences to a higher level. The sad thing is that local and national Arts support is dwindling and ATP was one of the earlier casualties due, in large part, to the fact that they don’t do standard “crowd pleasers” but, rather present challenging, Broadway quality productions. My wife & I have been financial, technical, and production supporters for a number years and only wish that more people that appreciate quality would get on board as well. Phoenix can ill afford to lose a company of this quality and integrity.

To me, theater is essential culture. No where else, save life itself, do we have the chance to watch a story become a living, breathing creature. No where else is the opportunity given to lean forward and add your own energy to the story being told. I introduced my son to theater at an early age and it is one of the things we really enjoy doing as a family.

I see amazing theater at Actors Theatre. Theater that makes me laugh. Theater that moves me. Theater that inspires me to do my very best work.

I admire Actors Theatre's audience. Smart, interesting people who demand smart and interesting plays.

I have such respect for the artists that work there, both on the front and behind the scenes. The support given there is astounding and their commitment to what they do makes me proud to have Actors Theatre on my resume.

I think of the people at Actors Theatre as my people and some of my dearest friends.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I play at Actors Theatre and I get to play with some of the best in the biz. I have been blessed with several opportunities to tell great stories. I have played a cop with an over sized sense of justice and a chip on her shoulder. I have played a nun struggling to find her path in life. And most recently, I got to travel way back in time, don a corset and tell a wonderful story about a little known historical fact. I have done work I am very proud of on the Actors Theatre stage.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I would love it if the shows ran longer than just three weeks. It seems like just as word is getting out a show has already closed.
