A/C Theatre Company
A/C Theatre Company produces alternative/commercial theatre focusing on contemporary stage musicals underrepresented in Phoenix. A/CTC presents accessibly cool theatre to connect both mainstream and progressive audiences, fostering the exchange of collaborative energy between artists and the community.
More About Us
A/C Theatre Company was founded in July of 2014 by a team of local theatre collaborators to increase the variety of musical theatre available to Phoenix audiences. Focusing on contemporary and infrequently produced shows, A/CTC is a response to theatregoers increasing desire for under-represented, alternative musicals.
What does A/C stand for?
For us it means "Accessibly Cool", referencing our mission to provide mainstream audiences the Alternative/Commercial" musicals missing from the Valley musical theatre menu.
Since A/CTC's inaugural 2015/16 season we've produced four Arizona premieres, "Murder Ballad", "Now. Here. This.", Lin Manuel Miranda's "21 Chump Street", and "Lizzie". We opened Season 3 with "Hedwig and the Angry Inch" co-produced with Phoenix Theatre and next month we present the film noir style musical "Gunmetal Blues" with a score by local composer Craig Bohmler.

"A/C Theatre Company is a new theatre troupe that, like its geographical location, is the Phoenix that has risen from the ashes of companies that have sadly fallen before it. With talent seen either on stage or working behind the scenes of previous productions under different banners, A/C Theatre Company - a name, we're told, can mean several things, including Alternative Commercial, Artistically Collaborative or the more literal Air Conditioned theatre - has arrived with a modicum of fanfare presenting contemporary stage musicals that are considered underrepresented in Phoenix."
"How wonderful that A/C Theatre has the strength and chops to keep working and introducing us to new material. It is well worth the immersion into these characters' stories and music for an upcoming evening out." -Jennifer Haaland, Mesa Performing Arts Examiner
