THE HISTORIC Y: We've got it going on!



The Scoundrel & Scamp Theatre

We are pleased to announce the opening of The Scoundrel & Scamp Theatre at The Historic Y in October 2017. The S&S challenges and invigorates our community with theatrical works ranging from classics to new and provides a space where local artists and cross-generational audiences alike explore deep and provocative questions regarding self, tribe, life, death and what it ultimately means to be human. S&S strives to cultivate the next generation of theatre artists through collaboration, imagination, inquiry, and training. For more information, please visit https://scoundrelandscamp.org.

Community Volunteer Fair at The Historic Y, February 19, 2018

100s of social and environmental activists and others frustrated by the current political climate came to The Historic on President's Day to make connections and find out ways to get involved and make a difference. More than 70 organizations seeking volunteers were on hand to tell people about their missions.  Beer, snacks, music and camaraderie were enjoyed by all in the lovely lobby and courtyard of The Historic Y.  

Similar to our first Fair on Presidents’ Day 2017, participating organizations were both social and political, with an emphasis on fighting for equality and social justice and protecting the environment and vulnerable populations and causes.  

Following the Fair, there was a staged reading of Monica Bauer's political play, "The Real Machiavelli" in the Scoundrel and Scamp Theater.

The Historic Y Gathering of Friends

The Historic Y celebrated The Dark Days Of 2017 on December 21 from 5 to 10 pm with a Gathering of Friends, a festive gathering featuring local food, beverage and music in appreciation to those doing exemplary work in the arts, education, human rights, social and environmental justice and helping professions.  

The Historic Y, as the leading sponsor, organizer and host of the Annual Gathering of the Greens, in an effort to appeal to a greater number of artists, activists, progressives and professionals making a difference in Tucson, rebranded it’s annual get-together “The Historic Y Gathering of Friends”.  The party had the same format, look and feel as the old Gathering of the Greens, but was sponsored primarily by The Historic Y and its tenants but be for both them and the communities with whom they work most closely.  In addition to the many “green” organizations which had participated in the past, there were many people dedicated to the arts, education, social justice, human rights, and other fields represented by tenants of The Historic Y in attendance, some who were visiting The Historic Y for the first time.
