outstanding programs designed to give young aspiring artists opportunities
for growth. Each season ATC is fortunate to work with the U of A's talented
faculty members as actors, combat instructors, dialect coaches and
designers. U of A students perform and understudy roles in ATC shows each
year with amazing success. This wonderful partnership also serves area high
school students with programs that include Summer on Stage, The Wasserstein
Project and the Professional Internship Program.
Arizona Theatre Company's 2007 Gala is its major fundraiser of the year to
support education and community-based programs that enhance the theatre
experience and foster artists and audiences for the future.
