About The Show


They got the wrong play, the wrong director, the wrong cast. Where did they go right? Max Bialystock, a smarmy Broadway producer, and Leo Bloom, his mild-mannered accountant, have come up with a sure-fire scheme to make millions! First, sweet talk some little old ladies into giving them their life’s savings. Then, find the script—the most notorious flop in history that will close after the first performance. Only one thing could go wrong: the show is a smash hit! Based on Mel Brooks’ classic film, The Producers is a madcap romp that features scene after scene of delicious, laugh-out-loud comedy, 16 wickedly witty songs, and some of the most gloriously outrageous dance numbers ever put on by Arizona Onstage. It’s the winner of the most Tony® Awards in Broadway history. It’s Mel Brooks at his absolute best. It’s bawdy, irreverent, funny, satirical, shocking, and naughty—all in the way that only Mel Brooks can deliver.

PG-13 - 'The Producers' is an equal-opportunity's Mel Brooks, folks!

Roadrunner Theatre Company presents Triumph of Love

Roadrunner Theatre Company


Triumph of Love

A musical about love, reason, mistaken identity and topiaries

Book by James Magruder

Music by Jeffrey Stock

Lyrics by Susan Birkenhead

Directed by Chach Snook
And starring

Erin Anderson, Jodi Darling, Kit Runge, José "Chach" Snook, Kelli Workman, Tyler Wright, and Jeremy Vega


An anachronistic adaptation of the classic Marivaux comedy of the same name, Triumph of Love is full of delicious deception, gender confusions and all the complexities of l'amour, revealing the beauty, absurdities and bittersweet nature of love.


Along with their hilarious "henchmen," Princess Leonide and the handsome Agis become lost on the messy path to love. One of them loves the other. The other is planning to kill her but unknowingly falls in love with her when she claims to be an on-the-run bride. This, after Agis discovers that she is not a male student, as her original disguise suggested – a disguise that proved convincing enough for another woman to fall in with her.
All of this fun, and we've not yet made it to intermission!


"[It melds]... a bright, comic-book style with a campy, irreverent wit... the broad comedy seamlessly (and quite effectively) gives way to moments of real poignancy as the aging brother and sister open their long-closed hearts to the dangers of love." – Variety


August 4 to August 27, 2017

Fridays & Saturdays at 7 pm and Sundays at 2pm

At Roadrunner Theater, 8892 E. Tanque Verde Rd.


Tickets: $24 General Admission; $22 Students/Seniors; $18 Military/Groups 10 or more

"Show Me the Money"

The Dialogue Workshop

August 1, 2017  7PM - 9PM
Location: The Art Institute of Tucson
5099 E. Grant Road Rm 129 Tucson, AZ, 85712




For beginners to experienced writers –

Discover the essential elements of GREAT DIALOGUE and the fatal flaws that undermine dialogue. 
Learning the basic techniques will instantly improve the emotional impact and quality of your writing.
Writing great dialogue is a combination of having a trained ear (knowing what to listen for) and learning basic technique.  This mini-workshop helps you sharpen your ear, making your dialogue crisp, effective, suspenseful and memorable.  Great dialogue scenes have strong structure which is learnable, and will insure that all your dialogue scenes have maximum impact.

Great films have memorable lines of dialogue:  "You had me at Hello." "Frankly, My Dear, I don't give a damn!" "We'll always have Paris." "We're not in Kansas anymore,"  "Go ahead.  Make my day."  "Houston, we have a problem."  "Life is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you're gonna get." "Of all the gin joints in the world, she had to walk into mine."  These lines stay with us forever!

Writing dialogue is great fun – and writing great dialogue is electrifying!  It can make the difference between selling a screenplay or publishing a book – or having your project remain a manuscript sitting in your file drawer!

Arizona Theatre Company's 2017-18 season First Two Shows: "Chapter Two" and "The River Bride"


From: Steve Carr []
Sent: Friday, July 28, 2017 9:37 AM
Subject: Single Tickets on Sale Aug. 1 for Arizona Theatre Company's First Two Shows: "Chapter Two" and "The River Bride"




            Single tickets for the first two shows in Arizona Theatre Company's (ATC) 2017-18 season, its 51st, – Chapter Two and The River Bride – go on sale August 1.

            Chapter Two, written by Neil Simon and directed by Marsha Mason, will be on stage at the Temple of Music & Art, 333 S. Scott Ave. in Tucson, from Sept. 9-30 and at the Herberger Theater Center, 222 E. Monroe St. in Phoenix, from Oct. 5-22.

            The River Bride, written by Marisela Treviño Orta and winner of ATC's 2013 National Latino Playwriting Award, will run from Oct. 21 to Nov. 11 at the Temple of Music & Art and from Nov. 16 to Dec. 3 at the Herberger Theater Center.

            Single ticket prices range from $25 to $73 in Tucson and $25-$80 in Phoenix and can be purchased at the box offices at the Temple of Music & Art and the Herberger Theatre Center or online at

            Chapter Two marks Mason's return to ATC after directing last year's blockbuster hit, An Act of God. The play is Simon's semi-autobiographical comedy written as a tribute to Mason, his second wife, who was nominated for an Academy Award and won a Golden Globe for playing the lead role in the film.  The story is about a recently widowed writer, George Schneider, who is introduced by his press-agent brother to soap opera actress Jennie Malone.

            Both are trying to come to terms with starting from scratch, and, through their friends who are determined to see the two happy again, the pair meet and begin a whirlwind romance.

            The River Bride takes place once-upon-a-time in a fishing village along the Amazon where two sisters struggle to find their happily-ever-after.  The Times Standard called The River Bride a "mesmerizing, magical tale of heartbreaking romance. A shining example of what live theatre is all about."

            Helena is dreading her sister Belmira's wedding. The groom, Duarte, should have been hers! And she knows that her sister only wants to escape their sleepy Brazilian town for an exciting new life in the city. But, three days before the wedding, fishermen pull a mysterious stranger out of the river – a man with no past who offers both sisters an alluring, possibly dangerous future.  Brazilian folklore and lyric storytelling blend into a heart-rending tale of true love, regret, transformation and the struggle to stay true to your family while staying true to yourself.

            The River Bride, directed by Kinan Valdez, will be followed by a new production of Man of La Mancha (directed by David Bennett, choreography by Kathryn Van Meter) in Tucson, Dec. 2-31 and Phoenix, Jan. 5-27, 2018; Outside Mullingar (directed by ATC Artistic Director David Ivers), from the author of Doubt and Moonstruck, in Tucson, Jan. 20-Feb. 10 and Phoenix from Feb. 15 to March 4; Low Down Dirty Blues (directed by Randal Myler), in Tucson March 10-31 and in Phoenix, April 5-22; and The Diary of Anne Frank, directed by ATC Artistic Director Emeritus David Ira Goldstein, in Tucson April 21 to May 12 and in Phoenix, May 17 to June 3.

            Season ticket packages are now available. Build-your-own subscriptions for 3, 4 or 5 play packages and Flex Passes also are on sale.  Season-packages in Tucson range from $135 to $345 and in Phoenix from $135 to $435.

            For more information, visit or call the box office in Tucson at (520) 622-2823 or in Phoenix at (602) 256-6995.

Artifact Dance Project

An ancient story of heroism...
American jazz at its finest...
Inside the mind of an artist...
Three new choreographers...

...four world premieres for the 2017/2018 Artifact Season.

Season subscriptions on sale NOW! 
Single tickets on sale August 9th.











October 12-15, 2017
Artistic Director Ashley Bowman choreographs the world premiere of Judith, a story of heroism, struggle, power and spirituality. Art Historian Kevin Justus collaborates with Bowman to adapt the ancient story of the "Book of Judith", one of the Apocrypha/Deuterocanonical books of the Bible, dating back to the 2nd century B.C. Known for fusing contemporary movement, acting, and narrative, Artifact tells the tale of Judith, who goes against the great general Holofernes, commanded by the ruthless King Nebuchadnezzar.  Ilaria Guerra dances the role of Judith.


November 16-19, 2017
Rooted in downtown Tucson's historic arts warehouse district, Artifact Dance Project continues its series of collaborations with local bands. For this fall concert, singer Rebecca Carlson and musician/composer Chris Black come together to perform iconic American jazz songs from the past to present day.  The choreography and essence will capture New York City during the 1940s.  




MARCH 22-25, 2018

Artifact Dance Project takes on the life and spirit of the legendary artist, Frida Kahlo, in a moving collaboration with musicians Lane Harmon and Roger King, who brought the project to choreographer Ashley Bowman. Frida's powerful artwork and complicated journey with her partner, painter and muralist Diego Rivera, influences the staging, music and costuming. Claire Hancock dances the role of Frida and actor David Alexander Johnston takes on the role of Diego Rivera.


MAY 3-6, 2018
Three up-and-coming choreographers premiere original works in an intimate studio concert. Working with Artistic Director Ashley Bowman, they will push creative boundaries, providing an exceptional opportunity for the audience to experience this next generation of talent.  Choreographers include Allie Knuth, Samuel Kraus and Nate Myer.

FALL PRODUCTION: Hansel and Gretel by Engelbert Humperdinck


The Arizona Rose Opera Company will be holding another round of auditions on

Saturday, July 29th

from 12pm to 1pm for our upcoming production of Hansel and Gretel

This is an open call for all singers with operatic training.


Auditions will be held at the 

Arizona Rose Theatre in the Tucson Mall

(Lower Level by Macy's and across from the Container Store)



Peter (Father): Baritone.  Father of Hansel and Gretel, a local broom maker who works hard and loves his family.

Hansel: Mezzo soprano.   Young boy, older brother to Gretel.  Must be able to move well and dance.  Doesn't always think things through--very carefree.


Please come with a short (approx. 32 bars) operatic selection in English.  The selection may be from Hansel and Gretel.

Auditions will be acapella,  but you may bring an accompaniment track on a phone, ipod or CD if you prefer.

Hansel and Gretel is a classic fairy tale opera about two young siblings who lose their way in the forest. This production is set during the Great depression, and incorporates elements of magical realism.  After meeting a grizzled mountain man (The Sandman) and an effervescent pixie (The Dew Fairy), the children encounter the evil Gingerbread Witch.  But of course this fairytale has a happy ending, and after the witch is defeated the children reunite with their parents.

***All singers are offered a small stipend.  Show dates are September 29, 30, and October 1st.  Please email with any questions and to schedule an  audition slot.
