Support Local Theatre

This post is (mostly) for my Arizona friends who frequent my blog. However, the message really is universal: Whenever you can, support your local theater. These are people who bring a lot of joy to their audiences.  Most certainly do not perform on stage (and assist behind stage) for the money, but it sure does help!

The local theater that I like to support is The Arizona Theatre Company. They perform at The Herberger Theater in downtown Phoenix, which is a cozy theater with red velvet seats and three beautiful stages. 

I remember when The Herberger was being built over 30 years ago, so I have been visiting this theater since the beginning and have seen wonderful productions over the years.

Just recently, I saw The Music Man.  Clearly a period musical but the Arizona Theatre Company kind of put a new spin on an old piece.  It was delightful.  And I'm a total sucker for a musical.

Upcoming productions include August Wilson's Two Trains Running, American Mariachi, and then finishing out the season with Things I Know To Be True

I know where I'll be the next few months. Maybe I'll see you there? :)

This is a late comment but I just want to add my voice to yours. We are fortunate to one professional theater company, four community companies, and three college theater programs in the Greater Dayton Ohio area. I support and enjoy them all.
