Other Companies - Theater is alive and well in the Southwest!
New Mexico and Arizona are home to extraordinary and dedicated theatrical talent. Some of the regional and community companies dedicated to making theater accessible to all are listed below. SCCT welcomes information about other groups.
ATC's productions exist in the here and now, but after a while they are no more, only to remain in the memories of the people who experience them. Imagine a few hundred people viewing a van Gogh, and then it gets lit on fire and is no more; that's what we kind of do. There is this sense of urgency to create the production the best you can in the time you have. That's when this idea of collective art kicks in. We all take part in creating the productions, and I do mean everybody, from the bookkeepers to the props artisan to the actors. There is no one individual who is responsible for the creations, but a collective of very talented individuals coming together working on the same story, same project, same dream, creating a work of art that lives in the here and now for our wonderful audience.
