THEATER IN PHOENIX

Celebrity Theatre

Willie Nelson at the Celebrity Theatre

About the Celebrity Theatre:

This theatre in the round lives up to its name. The list of celebrities that have performed here in its over 50 year history is lengthy to say the least. Great names in comedy and music have performed here, including Diana Ross, Billy Joel, George Carlin, Fleetwood Mac, Don Rickles to name just a few. The Celebrity Theatre has also been home to wonderful productions such as the musical "South Pacific" which was the opening show for this theatre back in 1964.

The most unique feature of this theatre which was originally built as a multi-purpose conference center, is the stage which is round and is 30 feet in diameter. It has the ability to rotate, so that even the the theatre has a rather large seating capacity, no one is more than 70 feet from the stage, as the seating completely surrounds the stage. It also has the capacity to turn into a proscenium style theatre, reducing the seating capacity for smaller shows.

Some of the amenities at the Celebrity Theatre include a full bar with premium liquors, as well as three more bars within the theatre itself, allowing for patrons to buy a drink during the performance without missing a beat. There is also a concession on property for snack items such as pretzels and hot dogs. If you belong to the Celebrity Club, you can come by early (several hours before the show) and enjoy the full bar and lounge area which includes some interesting theatre memorabilia on display.
