Desert Foothills Theater Announces Productions, Events for November and December

Scottsdale, AZ, October 16, 2019 --( The Desert Foothills Theater announces several productions and events for November and December.

Irving Berlin’s musical tale of Annie Oakley, “Annie Get Your Gun,” will be performed weekends Nov. 8 through 17. Renowned in the Wild West as a sharpshooter, Annie meets her match, both romantically and professionally, in the form of fellow ace gunslinger Frank Butler. While Annie and Frank are performing as part of the famous traveling show headlined by the legendary Buffalo Bill, the two compete and flirt, with plenty of ups and downs along the way.

Performances are at 7:30 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays with 2 p.m. matinees on Sundays at the Main Stage of the Cactus Shadows Fine Arts Center, 33606 N. 60th St., Scottsdale, 85266. Tickets are $15 for youth 3-12 years of age and $25 for everyone 13 and older.

“We are grateful to Phyllis and Peter Strupp, our season sponsors, and Dennis Gougion of Golf Fore Charity for sponsoring this fun musical,” says Tia Wooley, managing director of the Desert Foothills Theater. “Also, we have auditions scheduled for ‘Then There Were None’ on Saturday, Nov. 16, from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. The ‘Honk! Jr.’ audition workshop will be Saturday and Sunday, Nov. 23-24, 1-4 p.m., with auditions for ages 8 to 18 on Saturday, Dec. 7, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and Sunday, Dec. 8, from 2 to 6 p.m. More details are available at”

In December, the Theater will present the holiday classic, “Yes, Virginia, There is a Santa Claus.” On Christmas Eve, 1897, in New York City, eight-year-old Virginia is left pondering whether or not Santa really exists after a series of unhappy events. Meanwhile, a young newspaper editor also struggles against tough holiday times as he is faced with losing his job if he can't find his writer's voice by morning. Even though they don't know each other, the spirit of Christmas is about to bring these people together, creating in the process an unforgettable and cherished part of classic Christmas folklore.

Auditions for “Yes, Virginia, There is a Santa Claus” will be held Sunday, Nov. 3 from 10 a.m. - 1 p.m. at the Holland Community Center. The production will be presented Friday and Saturday, Dec. 20-21 at 7 p.m. and Sunday, Dec. 22, 2 p.m., in the Holland Community Center, 34250 N. 60th St., Scottsdale 85266. Tickets are $20 for general admission seats.

The award-winning Desert Foothills Theater has been presenting live performances in the far north valley since 1975. For tickets and more information about upcoming events, visit or call 480-488-1981.
