Diversity and Inclusion

Almost Famous Theatre Company is committed to cultivating a culture of inclusion. We celebrate each individual’s unique gifts and applaud growth in an environment that is built upon trust. When one of us grows, all of us grow. We strive for diversity in our leaders, staff members, performers, volunteers, and audience members. Art, especially theater, is a reflection of life so we must honor and represent all parts of our world.

Community Outreach

We believe in giving back to the communities we serve. We partner with other non-profit organizations to expand awareness of the arts, create synergy between our missions and provide resources to those in need. Whether it is supplying set pieces, microphones and costumes to other theaters, to coaching at-risk youth to discover their talents and gain confidence, to bringing joy to seniors in assisted living, we serve our community on and off the stage.

Non-profit organizations we have partnered with in the community:

Arizona Humane Society
National Kidney Foundation of Arizona
Arizona Women's Board
Cocopah Middle School
Cowgirls Historical Foundation
Florence Crittenden
Jewish Family and Children's Service
Renewal Performing Arts
