The Festival of New American Theatre

January 3, 2024 to January 21, 2024

The southwest’s premiere new theatre works festival — trust us, it’s a process.

Hosted annually by The Phoenix Theatre Company, the Festival of New American Theatre amplifies new voices and expands the canon of American theatre. Returning for its 26th year, the Festival will continue our time-honored commitment to the development of new works, playwrights, and performers as well as showcase a variety of events that allow artists of all kinds to see their work come alive onstage. This year’s festival will feature: a play reading, two musical readings, two Composer Lyricist Cabarets, Choreography Lab, First Draft Series, New Work Design Panel, and the 24-hour Theatre Project. The 26th Anniversary will also feature collaborations with Spotlight Youth Theatre and Arizona State University. This is a behind-the-curtain opportunity to witness how a production goes from the page to the stage!
