Since it began in 2010, Scottsdale Musical Theater Company has always offered discounts to veterans and military personnel and their families to all of their productions.

The theater has also donated hundreds of tickets through VetTix – a program that offers free tickets to events to veterans and their families through a lottery system – more than any other theater company in the Valley, according to a press release.

SMTC is dedicated to making low-cost or free tickets available to veterans for each production.

“Going to the theater has always been a great escape for anyone seeking great entertainment and to be transported to other places,” stated Associate Producer Hector Coris in the release. “Having spoken with many veterans who have attended our productions, they are so grateful for the opportunity to get out for an evening with their loved one and see a show. If we can make that experience affordable to them, that is just a small token of appreciation for their service to our country.”

For Sondheim on Sondheim, SMTC is offering $20 tickets for military personnel and their families. Using the code “MILVET02” veterans and military personnel can call 602-909-4215 or order online at to buy discounted tickets.

Weaving actual video interviews with the legendary composer himself, “Sondheim on Sondheim” provides a fresh perspective into Stephen Sondheim’s illustrious career from his biggest hits to his earlier works and earlier versions of songs from his famous musicals, stated the release.

The cast of eight will present some of Mr. Sondheim’s best–and obscure–songs.

This is the first time this show, first produced on Broadway in 2010, has ever been presented in Arizona.

This limited engagement is to take place Oct. 29-31 at Tempe Center for the Arts, 700 W. Rio Salado Parkway in Tempe. Regular tickets are $32-$42 and may be ordered at 602-909-4215 or through the SMTC website

The performance schedule is 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 29; 7:30 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 30; and 2 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 31.
