Nearly Naked Theatre

Map & Directions 100 E. McDowell Road
Phoenix, AZ 85004


Phoenix New Times' Description

The “naked” in nearly naked doesn't refer to the actors' state of dress, but rather to the nakedness of the theater itself. This not-for-profit group of local artists, actors, writers and more aim to strip theater of the pressure to conform leaving just the essentials. The black box theater troupe feeds on providing Valley theater-goers with thought-provoking, at times risque, shows such as Spring Awakening, the Great American Trailer Park Musical and Hurly Burly. Damon Dering, the troupe's founding artistic director, is an Arizona native who wanted to break out of the viscous cycle of same-old-same plays and inability to push the boundaries. He founded Nearly Naked Theater with two friends and for years they bounced around from theater to theater, facing censorship for their content. Now you can find them as the resident troupe of the Phoenix Theater Little Theater and we're happy this colorful troupe finally has a place to call their own.
