Arizona Broadway Theatre
Theaters & Cinemas in Peoria, AZ
When construction started in late fall 2004, ABT's founders - Kiel, Cassandra, Ronald and Penelope Klaphake - expected the theatre to be completed by September 2005. Construction delays, however, caused a slight detour on the theatre's way to settling in at 7701 W. Paradise Lane. We forged ahead and opened our 1st show, Anything Goes, in a huge pavilion (okay tent) at the Peoria Sports Complex. Our patrons experienced food prepared in a dugout kitchen, an range of daytime and nighttime temperatures, baseballs landing on the roof, and street sounds at the most inopportune times.
