Great American Playhouse
Located in beautiful Oro Valley, Arizona an evening at The Great American Playhouse is always a treat for the whole family.
Get to the Theatre plenty early. As you arrive for the evening’s performance, you will be greeted by glamorous ladies and dapper gents. They link their arms through yours and chat with you as they escort you to your seat.
The show starts before the curtain goes up, so come early and enjoy the entertainment before the first act. Drinks and free popcorn help provide early arrivals the energy to laugh and sing during the entire show.
In addition to all original, outrageous musical comedies we offer musical parodies of classic movies, TV shows, and Broadway hits, with a melodramatic twist! Each show also features a high-energy variety show we call ‘The Olio’ following the play with more singing, dancing and comedy. It’s 2 shows in 1!
From the time you enter the theatre, you escape to a place with no worries of everyday life. While you are waiting for the start of the show, you will be treated to a dazzling display of piano pyrotechnics playing music to sing-along. Leave your inhibitions outside!
When the show starts, be ready to boo and hiss the dastardly villains who justly deserve our scorn. Cheer for the wholesome heroes and innocent heroines, because they truly deserve our praise. The Great American Playhouse actors love audience participation. Who knows, maybe you’ll be dragged on stage! Sing along and tap your feet to the music of the olio performers who make sure that no-one gets bored between acts.
A variety of tasty food selections are optional and can be ordered right at your table. The menu includes pizza, cheese crisps, sausage and meatball sandwiches, ice cream treats, beer, wine and soft drinks.

Boasting the largest seasonal subscriber base in the performing arts in Arizona, ATC is the only resident company in the US that reaps the benefits of a two-city operation.

Widely regarded as the “Crown Jewel” of Downtown Tucson, The Fox is right in the center of Tucson’s cultural hub and has an intimate connection with the history of performing arts in Tucson. The Fox has become an important symbol of the recent resurgence of a thriving city center and continues to make strides adding to the economic growth of the downtown area and Tucson as a whole.
The Fox Tucson Theatre Foundation was incorporated in July of 1999 and was formed for the express purpose of returning the theatre to the community. The foundation generates community interest and investment in the past, present and future of the theatre by sustaining a place that offers high quality performing arts, cultural activities and films in order to inspire, excite, entertain, engage and educate guests from all over Southern Arizona.
The Foundation is an Arizona 501(c)(3) non-profit organization formed out of the citizen’s group known as the Fox Theatre Revival Committee, which began looking at ways to save the theatre in 1997. This group was composed of people who wanted to see the theatre restored, and re-opened. The stated mission of the Foundation is the purchase, restoration, renovation, and operation of the historic Fox Tucson Theatre, located at 17 West Congress, in downtown Tucson, Arizona. The Foundation is guided by a professional staff and is overseen by a volunteer Board of Directors. For further information on the theatre, contact the Foundation office at 520-624-1515.
