Desert Stages Inc.

Scottsdale's Premier Community Theatre

Our Story

Scottsdale Desert Stages Theatre is an award-winning, non-profit performing arts theatre in Old Town Scottsdale. Desert Stages was established in 1995 by Laurie Cullity, the late Gerry Cullity and Joan Thompson. Desert Stages is committed to offering high-quality entertainment for the entire community and prides itself on providing a creative and inclusive environment where actors can learn, grow and thrive. Many Desert Stages alumni have gone on to work as professional actors in New York and Los Angeles but, no matter what a child aspires to, the training, education and experience they receive at Desert Stages will assist them on their journey.

Following 10 years in their current location, Desert Stages will move to their new theatre space within Scottsdale Fashion Square in late Spring of 2017.

Scottsdale Desert Stages prides itself on the creative, inclusive and joyful nurturing of each of its actors and the exhilarating experience these actors bring to their Arizona community with each and every performance.
