A very visible (not invisible) force in Tucson for over 40 years…
The Invisible Theatre (IT) of Tucson, a 501 C 3 organization, is dedicated to producing quality theatre and arts education experiences for all facets of the community in an intimate setting that showcases local professional talent and guest artists. IT takes its name from the invisible energy that flows between a performer and audience, creating the magic of theatre. Started in 1971 as an arena for local playwrights , the theatre has expanded its programs to include adaptations of classics and recent Off-Broadway plays and musicals, while continuing to encourage new playwrights through both full productions and stage readings.
Under the leadership of Managing Artistic Director Susan Claassen, Associate Artistic Director James Blair, and Associate Producer Cathy Johnson, IT is strongly committed to community service and outreach programs. The company’s current season includes a six play Main Stage season, many special events, Project Pastime – an educational theatre program for the mentally challenged including a video workbook and seminars that encourage community dialogue.
And note that Susan spells her last name as “Claassen” not to be confused with my last name of “Classen”, though we now humorously consider ourselves “cousins”. I recently watched the Pastime Players perform at the Flux Gallery (at Plaza Palomino) and they are a group of talented and fun-loving high schoolers.
