Over the past couple of years, The City of Tempe created and adopted a new citywide Arts Plan that calls for diversifying the offerings at Tempe Center for the Arts. In order to implement this new arts plan, The City of Tempe significantly limited Childsplay's performance weeks for upcoming seasons. The proposed schedule did not allow for us to serve the 80,000 students, teachers and families that see our onstage performances each season. Moving to The Herberger Theater Center (HTC) allowed us continue to serve this large audience. Childsplay is thrilled to be back at HTC, having been one of the original resident companies in the building. We are proud to be joining a wonderful family of Herberger resident companies including Arizona Theatre Company, Arizona Opera, Arizona Broadway Theatre, Center Dance Ensemble and iTheatre Collaborative.
The Childsplay Theatre Academy will remain at our Campus for Imagination and Wonder at 900 S. Mitchell Drive in Tempe. This will remain our home for our classes, administrative offices, rehearsal halls, and prop and costume shops.
