Stage Left Productions


Stage Left Productions (SLP) started out as a lifelong vision of Founder and Artistic Director, Cody Dull. With a rich and extensive background in theater arts, working on countless productions over many years, Cody not only loved the work, but his skills and savvy in building theater programs and drawing community support were undeniable. Growing a youth program from 10 to 100 children within months and producing sold-out shows a year and a half in advance gave him the confidence to step out on his own and inspired him to make his vision a reality by launching Stage Left Productions in 2016.


In its first year, SLP launched four productions, drawing more than 1,800 attendees. Robust community interest led SLP to add a second performance space the following year, doubling the number of productions and attracting more than 2,700 attendees. Building upon this momentum, in 2018, SLP made the move to a permanent location in Surprise, AZ, securing more than $850,000 in donor support to transform the modest space into a beautiful, 80-seat theater.


Since its launch, SLP has created nearly 75 shows, earning numerous AriZoni Awards for outstanding community theater, engaging nearly 600 children and adults in performing and production, and drawing nearly 30,000 attendees. SLP produces more than 13 shows annually, attracting nearly 6,000 attendees each year. Our mission is to provide an outlet for creative community involvement while seeking to produce quality entertainment.
