Local thespians Matt McAuley and Richard Vines banded together with the Dysart Community Education Department to conceptualize Ghostlight Theatre on the tenets of entertaining and educating the community with the dramatic arts.

Meanwhile, Ghostlight Theatre’s summer camps prepare budding thespians aged 10–18 for their moments in the spotlight.

For 37 years, Marilyn's Academy of Dance has set shoulders and feet a-shimmy with a limb-limbering roster of fun classes. Fleet-footed pupils unveil their latent rhythmic prowess in a plethora of styles, involving disciplines drawn from hip-hop, tap, jazz, ballet, and MacGyver's second season. Classes meet once per week for four consecutive weeks and welcome dancers ages 3 to adult, creating a fun environment full of first-timers alongside more experienced movers. Along with 10–15 other greenhorns, learn how dancing can unlock inner vaults of self-expression, discipline, and the mechanics of movement before moving on to more advanced steps and sultry glares.

Like the opposite of eyelids, the curtains at Scandalesque open to a dream world of garish costumes, pyrotechnics, circus arts, and sensuality. This nexus of fantasy and real life is produced in-house and performed by Scandalesque’s troupe of professional burlesque artists. Leading them, cofounders Lady Fontayne and Pyrrha Sutra, as they're known on stage, strive to curate an atmosphere where outlandishness flashes atop proper technique and artistry. When the troupe isn’t pushing the envelope and toppling mailmen, they’re teaching burlesque, adult-dance, and fitness classes throughout the week.

Originally established as the Phoenix Players in 1920, Phoenix Theatre operated out of the Phoenix Little Theatre for almost 30 years before settling into its current location. The 1952 building would become the core of the city’s cultural area, later drawing such establishments as the Phoenix Art Museum and Phoenix Library. The company’s current performance space does little to draw the audience’s attention away from the stage, save for the crisscross of industrial railings that support the catwalks and the retired jerseys of older playwrights.
