Broadway Returns to Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts
SCOTTSDALE, Arizona — Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts is excited to welcome fresh faces and veteran Broadway talents during its 2021–22 season. Scottsdale Arts ONE Members have a chance to grab their favorite seats before tickets go on sale to the public on Friday, April 2, 2021.
