Theater is frequently a family affair in Tucson. After you attend a few shows around town, the cast members will start to look very familiar. But no one takes this concept quite as far as the daVinci Players. Serving as a transitional company—mixing trainees from Studio Connections' acting classes with more seasoned performers—the daVinci Players are just as likely to direct, design and stage-manage a production as they are to appear onstage. Impressively, performances by their talented young actors can sometimes rival what you see at more-established theaters, as they take on wildly different roles from production to production. If this theatrical family gets any more close-knit, they're going to have to move to Arkansas.
