It has been doing live Tucson theater for almost 36 years. Tucson has been the home for the Gaslight Theater since in 1977. The Gaslight Theater Tucson actually began in Skagway, Alaska. A few University of Arizona drama students got the idea of doing theater in Alaska! Skagway, Alaska to be exact.
The eventual Gaslight Theatre troop founded the “Mighty Moose Melodrama Theatre”. There was only one production during that one summer in Alaska. By the end of the summer, the troop headed back to Tucson Arizona. Arizona is Warm!
Shortly after getting back, the Gaslight Theatre Tucson openned in a red barn in Trail Dust Town on Tanque Verde Road.
Some ten years later, the Gaslight Theater Tucson moved to a new location. The old Jerry Lewis Theatre on corner of Broadway and Kolb. The building was refurbished and a little diner was added at the location. “Little Anthony’s Diner” is adjacent to the Gaslight Theater Tucson location.
The Gaslight Theater and Little Anthony’s Diner provide a great place to have some fun. The Gaslight is truly a down home comedy theater set in a western theme. The Gaslight Theater Tucson has the look of a western saloon of the late 1800’s.
The main stage of the Gaslight Theater Tucson is elevated. There are additional areas on either side of the main stage. The area to the right holds the band. The band at the Gaslight Theater typically has an awesome rag time piano, a drummer and some strings.
