It’s hard to pick just one! My top three are Chris Isaak, Old Crow Medicine Show, and Lila Downs.

Favorite song lyric?
“Texas is hot, I can be cold. Grandma cried when I pierced my nose” Kacey Musgraves

What’s something interesting about you?
My personal TikTok page went viral after I posted a video talking about how much I love my mom. As silly as it is, I now have a decently sized community on there and get to work with some incredible brands.

Where is the best place you’ve traveled to and why?
Asheville, NC. It’s a cool art town tucked into the middle of the Appalachian Mountains. Every summer I have spent there has been memorable. They have some of the most delicious food and talented musicians on every street corner! It’s walkable, and they have the perfect weather, I only have great things to say.

What was the first concert you attended? OR What’s the best concert you attended?
My first was Warped Tour & the best hands down was Night One of the Eras Tour. As a LIFELONG Taylor fan, it was so amazing to finally see her in concert.

What’s the last book you read?
The last audiobook I finished was Fairy Tale by Stephen King and the last physical book was The Seven Year Slip by Ashley Poston.

If you could write a book about your life, what would the title be and why?
“A 20 Somethings Guide to Decoding Taylor Swift Lyrics & French Bulldogs”
As a member of the Swiftie community for the last 18 years, I’m great and cracking easter eggs and deciphering lyrics. I’m also OBSESSED with my dog. He is the best little guy and subsequently, I am now obsessed with all French Bulldogs.

What’s your favorite Instagram account?
Fox Tucson of course, but some other close favorites are Jordanhughesphoto, Petrafcollins, TaylorNation, Rodarte, & Jil Sander.




This spring the Fox Tucson Theatre is the recipient of significant grant funding supporting new and exciting developments in the KITT (Kids in the Theatre) program. Support from Angel Charity for Children, Downtown Tucson Partnership, The Hazen Family Foundation, The Stocker Foundation, and the National Endowment for the Arts will enable the Fox to greatly expand existing youth programming, create new initiatives, and deepen impact now and into the future.

“We’re so proud to carry on the Fox Tucson’s nearly 100-year commitment to kids that started with the Mickey Mouse Club. Today, we are building a robust, inclusive, family-centered program that is responsive and relevant to community needs. It is thrilling to have local, regional, and national funders all recognizing the impact that the Fox’s education and community engagement programs have on Tucson’s youth and families! We are excited to partner with so many grantmakers, leveraging nearly $110,000 of charitable support to ensure that the 24-25 Kids in the Theatre program of school shows, family shows, and summer kids activities are the absolute best yet,” said Fox Executive Director Bonnie Schock.

Under the leadership of Fox Outreach and Education Manager Jordan Wiley-Hill, school shows at the Fox reached an all-time peak this year. Beginning in 2018, the Fox had one school matinee show that was attended by several hundred students. In the 2023/24 season the program grew to 8 performances and served over 8,000 students and educators. For the 2024-25 season,10 school-time performances are planned. In addition, in 2024 thus far, there have been 14 different opportunities for students and artists to connect via workshops and discussion groups.

Most of this season’s KITT events included additional accessibility components, including ASL interpreters (plus Mexican sign language for the bilingual show!), audio description, and Spanish-to-English language translation. The majority of the students served are from Title I (underserved) schools. Teachers frequently reported that for many of their students it was their first time experiencing live performing arts.




Hi, I’m Christa, I’ve worked at the Fox for 6.5 years and am our graphic designer. However, one of my new favorite job duties is to connect our shows to community partners. For instance, I just learned how to fly from the ceiling…. Maybe you missed an episode? Click here for all my Tucson adventures!



Best Seats in the House

Love Seats were a beloved part of the Fox Theatre since it opened! We believe these are the best seats for any show or classic film. You can see everything happening and you get to sit cozily next to your favorite person. We always want to note that when you click to purchase seats to a show, the loveseat is for two!

Fun fact, the love seats were removed at some point in the ’40s, with one of the stated reasons being the youth were being too amorous.  Luckily for everyone (young and old!) they were lovingly restored to the Fox when the theatre was re-opened in the early 2000s.

Expansion Project


Tucson, AZ – The Fox Tucson Theatre Foundation is pleased to announce the successful closing of two significant real estate transactions. The transactions mark a major step forward in realizing a bold vision for a potentially transformative redevelopment of the corner of Congress Street and Stone Avenue.

As part of a larger expansion plan, late last week the Foundation closed on the purchase of the historic Fox Tucson Theatre at 17 W Congress from Rio Nuevo downtown redevelopment and revitalization district, along with the Arizona Star Building at 30 N Church Avenue (the organization’s administrative offices), and a strip of property connecting the two buildings (the theatre’s loading dock). On Wednesday, 12/28, the Foundation subsequently closed on the purchase of the properties along Stone Avenue immediately adjacent to the historic theatre. The new acquisitions include 1 W. Congress (the now unoccupied, former Bruegger’s Bagels downtown location) and 13, 17, 25 and 27 N Stone Avenue (three empty storefronts and the current location of Rae’s Place Downtown Market), connecting Congress north along Stone Avenue to the Bank of America building.

At its December 7 meeting following a year of planning and research, the Fox Board of Directors unanimously approved moving forward with the property purchases. At the same meeting, the Board authorized launch of the quiet phase of a capital campaign aimed at raising an initial project budget estimate of roughly $21 million over a 3 – 5-year campaign. The immediate funding goal is focused on meeting a generous two-million-dollar matching pledge challenge offered by Rio Nuevo. The Board has engaged Alexander|Carrillo Consulting to lead the quiet phase of the capital campaign, expected to unfold over the next 12 – 15 months. Long-time Tucson fundraising experts Laura Alexander and Phoebe Chalk-Wadsworth bring decades of experience to the project and will work closely alongside Fox Board and staff.

“We’ve set forth a bold vision,” said Fox Board President Brent Davis, “one that we believe will secure the legacy of the Crown Jewel of Tucson as not only an iconic, historic building; but, also as an enduring, flagship arts organization at the heart of downtown Tucson.” With this plan, the Fox will be capable of better serving the needs of current audiences as well as the generations to come with greater artistic program diversity, next level patron services, dynamic food and beverage experiences, and much more; all in ways that complement and extend what the Tucson community loves about the irreplaceable historic treasure.

“The opportunity to purchase these adjacent properties presented a once-in-a-lifetime, seize-the-day moment to invest in the long-term future and ultimate sustainability of the Fox,” said Fox Board Expansion Committee Chair Nancy March. “We were thrilled to receive such an enthusiastic response from so many when the initial concept was presented in October.”

Since then, the Fox Board and staff leadership have been focused on finalizing this pivotal property acquisition phase. With the properties now acquired, the project can move ahead with next steps. Immediate project priorities include active fundraising, ongoing work with stakeholders to refine program use plans, advancing the preliminary conceptual renderings into more concrete stages of design development, and additional reviews, input, and a recommendation for approval of the design by the Tucson/Pima County Historic Commission.
