CEO & Board of Directors

From Our CEO

Welcome to the 2023-2024 season!

We couldn’t be more excited to see that you and many people like you are buying tickets and are gathering together to see amazing shows by resilient performing companies, including our Resident Companies, Childsplay, Arizona Opera, and iTheatre Collaborative.

I’ve heard it said that “the joy of living is in being together.” Right now, there are more than 300 reasons to be together through performances and events that are on sale on our website, HerbergerTheater.org. There are also many opportunities to be together for free performances and engagement opportunities outside the walls of the facility.

The Herberger Theater Center has put together a fantastic season of free outdoor programming that includes artists that are as diverse as our community. You don’t want to miss our First Friday Live series, our Performance Pop-Up series, the annual Festival of the Arts, and our many Art Gallery exhibits.

The Herberger Theater Center is THE place to find fantastic performing companies, incredible artists, engaging events, amazing performances, and diverse experiences that ignite emotion, stimulate conversation, and inspire connections with the arts.

I appreciate you and I’m so glad we are together at the Herberger Theater Center.

Enjoy the performance!

Mark Mettes
