TRADITION! Nobody can do Fiddler like a Jewish Theatre! We can’t think of a more appropriate show to kick off our 20th Anniversary Season. At the turn of the last century, in the little village (shtetl) of Anatevka, Tevye, a poor dairyman, tries to instill in his five daughters the traditions of his tight-knit Jewish community. Faced with ever-present threats of pogroms from Tsarist Russia, changing social mores, intellectual ideas brought in from afar, Tevye struggles to hold on to his century-old beliefs.

Arizona Jewish Theatre Company Has A New Home!

AJTC feels fortunate to have entered into a 3-year facilities agreement with Paradise Valley Community College to perform at the Center for the Performing Arts. PVCC’s $6 million, 25,000 square foot Center for the Performing Arts opened October 13, 2005. A fully professional, multi-use theater, the beautiful facility seats nearly 300 patrons and incorporates a 25-musician orchestra pit, a full fly system, comfortable dressing rooms for up to 30 actors, as well as state-of-the-art lighting, sound and audio/visual systems. The auditorium has comfortable seats, is climate controlled and offers 10 infra-red hearing devices.

The theater’s 1000 square foot lobby contains a box office and concession counter and also functions as an art gallery. Just outside the building is a new outdoor amphitheatre, which will be used for a variety of concerts and programs.

The CPA sits on the east end of the campus, off 34th street, just south of Union Hills. The facility is easy to reach by the 51 or the Loop 101. There is
ample parking, including handicapped spots, within 25-100 feet from the door.

The performing arts community at PVCC is excited about the new arrangement too. “PVCC students will have a professional theatre company in residence from whom they can learn and gain invaluable experience,” states Dr. Christopher Scinto, division chair of PVCC’s Fine and Performing Arts Department.

Ultimately the biggest beneficiary of AJTC’s new home will be the Northeast Valley itself. “The community will benefit by having access to professional theatre in their own backyard,” Scinto said.
