The renovated Marroney Theatre reopens this week with the debut of Sweeney Todd by UA School of Theatre, Film & Television, celebrating the newly christened stage named in honor of one of our most beloved alumni, actor Craig T. Nelson.

The theatre has new seating, state-of-the-art screening equipment, and a sound system. These updates will allow the venue to double as one of the most technologically advanced film screening rooms in Tucson. Plus, there are upgrades to the east entry, lobby, box office, and restrooms.

β€œThe reopening of the Marroney Theatre marks an important milestone for the Arizona Arts Master Plan,” said Andrew Schulz, vice president for the arts. β€œWe have upgraded a space used by generations of theatre students and soon by our film students as well.

All of this was made possible thanks to the generosity of private donors as well as university leadership who provided critical matching funds.
