The 2023-2024 schedule presents five mainstage shows – including a big holiday musical spectacular perfect for all ages – with nearly 100 performances at TCA.

2024-2025 Season

Oct. 19-Nov. 3, 2024: “Dial M For Murder

This nail-biting 1952 play by Frederick Knott was later adapted by Alfred Hitchcock into the 1954 film and now comes to Arizona exclusively at ATC in this new adaptation, which has had box office-busting runs at theatres across the country. This clever, fast-paced adaptation adds extra layers of intrigue and emotion to the iconic cat-and-mouse story. Filled with vivid characters, sharp dialogue, and lethal amounts of intrigue, “Dial M” will keep you on the edge of your seat.

Dec. 7-28, 2024: “Scrooge!

Returning from its blockbuster first season for an encore, ATC’s holiday musical extravaganza “Scrooge!” celebrates the season with the beloved story of Ebenezer Scrooge joined by a distinguished cast of more than 24 actors, live musicians and an all-star creative team.

For the best seats, season ticket and flex pass advantage subscriptions are available now at Single tickets go on sale in mid-August. 

Feb. 22-March 9, 2025: “Blues in the Night”

A musical celebration of the blues and its influence on American music, this toe-tapping revue weaves the stories of three women and one man as they navigate love, heartbreak and rebirth. Set in a swanky 1930s Chicago hotel, this emotionally uplifting story features 26 of the hottest torch numbers by blues and jazz icons like Bessie Smith, Johnny Mercer, Harold Arlen, Duke Ellington, Billy Strayhorn, Ida Cox and Benny Goodman, to name a few.

Apr. 19-May 4, 2025: “Bob & Jean: A Love Story”

Lightning strikes and sparks fly when Bob and Jean meet in New York City, 1941. But their instant attraction is cut short as World War II drives the pair thousands of miles apart. While Bob is off to the Pacific as a bomb disposal officer, Jean is headed to boost troop morale as a USO actress. Is their connection strong enough to withstand the winds of war? Travel through their passionate, funny, sometimes desperate correspondence as they navigate battle, Broadway, and the complexities of the human heart.

June 14-29, 2025: “Ms. Holmes and Ms. Watson – Apt. 2B”

Modern-day adventure awaits with the most iconic detective duo of all time reimagined as a gal-pal comedy in “Ms. Holmes & Ms. Watson – Apt. 2B.” Set in present-day London, depressed American divorcee Dr. Joan Watson moves in with the carefree and eccentric Shirley Holmes, only to find themselves entangled in a series of mysteries, all related to a cunning supervillain who remains one step ahead of them.
