About The Gaslight Theatre
That’s right folks, we’ve been around long enough now to have a history! It all started back in 1977 when a young 24-year-old U of A student named Tony Terry Jr. grabbed a few great friends from the drama department and headed to Alaska! Skagway, Alaska to be exact. They founded the “Mighty Moose Melodrama Theatre” and the one and only production was called “Gold Fever! or Danger at Bonanza Creek!” This show was written by Howard Allen, designed and painted by Tom Benson, and produced by Tony Terry. After a long, cold, BUT FUN summer, the troupe said “The heck with this! Let’s head back to the desert!” Shortly after their return to Tucson and with the help of Tony’s brother Tom, they opened The Gaslight Theatre in an old red barn at Trail Dust Town on Tanque Verde Road.
