Tucson, AZ---The Fox Tucson Theatre 2021-22 season of shows was announced on June 10th to sponsors and patrons at a special preview event at the theatre. Guests were treated to an exciting sizzle reel of clips introducing a new approach to programming by Executive Director Bonnie Schock. “We built our Return to the Fox season around what people love about the Fox,” said Schock. “Shaping seven performance series that each feature something that the Fox does especially well!”
In particular, the Fox itself is an iconic space known for its grandeur, for the specialness of time spent here, for its exquisite sound, for its history as a film palace, and for a 90- year commitment that started with the Mickey Mouse Club for families and youth. The 2021-22 season features a collection of events in categories or “series” that honor these qualities and make up an overall Fox style. “We are excited to share a remarkable selection of shows in pursuit of our mission to enliven and foster community connections by shaping exceptional, live arts experiences in a celebrated setting,” says Schock. Audiences can easily find shows among their favorites in the following series:
Legends – Legends and icons of the performing arts across an intentionally eclectic mix of genres. From Broadway to Bluegrass, we bring you legendary stars who shine especially bright at the one- of- a- kind iconic Fox.
