More About Us

Since receiving tax-exempt status in 2014, A/C Theatre Company has produced four alternative/indie musicals- all of which were Arizona premieres! These unique shows have not been over- staged in the Valley, or put up at all. They include; Murder Ballad the Musical, Now.Here.This., Lizzie the Musical, and most recently 21 Chump Street. A/CTC wants to continue to produce underrepresented musicals in Phoenix in order to provide theatre artists, musician, and the audience more opportunities to experience this art form.

"A/C Theatre Company's production is full of passion with a good cast, solid direction, theatrically rich creative aspects, and a superb band."
-Gil Benbrook, PHX stages.com
"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
