Thousands of arts lovers and more than 50 of the Valley’s arts groups — from opera companies to children’s theaters to dynamic modern dance troupes — flock every year to the Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts for a full day of season sneak-peeks and an eclectic array of short performances.
It’s the only event of its kind in the Valley. And it’s free.
Today’s eighth annual Expo features 15-minute performances by Scorpius Dance Theatre, Southwest Shakespeare Company, Citrus Valley Playhouse and more than a dozen other groups — including performers from the Arizona Renaissance Festival. The Jester’Z improv troupe will perform between acts.
Meanwhile, in the Scottsdale Center atrium, attendees are invited to browse arts groups’ information booths for details on upcoming shows and opportunities to buy tickets and subscription packages.
