The Rogue consistently produces inventive, engrossing theatre. They don't just 'produce a play.' They work for a deep understanding of social, political, personal conditions referenced in the play and come up with an evening of superb entertainment. After each performance the cast and director come...More

My husband and I discovered the Rogue last year and have since seen 3 different plays. Every time we come we are blown away by the skill of the actors that perform here. The sets, costumes, and music are always fabulous. The theater is small...More

The Rogue productions are often provocative in a very good way, always well acted and staged. This is the only house in Tucson that seems to understand that its audience wants more than mere "plays" but wants to think, too.

The Rogue has a small, intimate theater which means there are no bad seats. Serious drama, classic plays, modern works, and comedies round out each season. Reasonable ticket prices.

This small theater, affiliated with the University of Arizona, is innovative, intimate, and overall excellent theater. 2014-15 is their 10th anniversary, and their offerings are interesting.

Thank you for the kind words about our theatre. We are not, however, affiliated with the University of AZ in any formal sense. We are neighbors on University Boulevard, many students and faculty audition and are cast in our productions, and we have produced plays...More
