About Desert Stages Theatre. A bustling community playhouse, Desert Stages Theatre in Scottsdale, Arizona, is a nonprofit 501 (c) 3, founded in 1995, and delivers performances year round. Four show schedules occur throughout the year: Actor’s Café performances in the intimate, proscenium-style 65-seat theatre; the Mainstage Series in Cullity Hall, an inventive theatre-in-the-round; the On Stage Children’s Series and Next Stage Teen Series – both performed in Mainstage Cullity Hall. DST also operates a theatrical academy, regularly hosts talent shows (Show Your Stuff), and offers a variety of music, dance and other classes open to the community. DST is led by cofounder, executive director and artistic director, Laurie Cullity. Additional cofounders are Joan Thompson and the late Gerry Cullity. Included in each DST season are children’s productions of original scripts, musical scores and lyrics by cofounder Cullity whose works are still relished eight years after his passing. Desert Stages has developed thousands of thespians, young and old, many with compelling personal stories of triumph and major stage success, and all of whom perform at DST for the pure love of the theatre.
