High school sophomores, juniors, and seniors and prospective transfer students are invited to the ASU Tempe Campus on March 16th from 4-9:30pm for the ASU Theatre Experience 2019. The event is free and includes a behind-the-scenes tour of ASU theatre facilities, workshop, and a pizza dinner with current ASU theatre students. Participants will also receive free tickets to the ASU MainStage show, Ajax, and attend a post-show talkback with the director and members of the cast–a unique opportunity to learn all about how the show was created!

NOTE: NEW PROCEDURES:
ALL participants (students and teachers) must register individually. ASU staff will provide supervision while students are on campus. This event is for students and teacher chaperones only.
Also NEW this year:
ALL participants must sign an electronic Liability Waiver via DocuSign. Minors under age 18 must also have the signature of their parents/guardians in order to participate. Teachers whose students or their parents do not have an email address or internet access should email [email protected] to discuss other options. ASU is committed to conservation; therefore, no paper forms will be accepted at any time.
Ajax Written by Sophocles Translated by John Tipton Directed by Kristin Hunt
In the aftermath of the Trojan War, Menelaus and Agamemnon name Odysseus the greatest warrior, awarding him the armor of the fallen hero Achilles. Furious at being passed over for this honor, Ajax vows murderous revenge in this timeless tragedy of madness and violence.
ASU’s production of Ajax incorporates punk music and culture as a storytelling backdrop, aiding in the creation of a concert-like theatrical experience.
