Audrey Johnson believed in the power of theatre in the lives of children. She believed that all children, regardless of their financial situation, should be allowed to experience the magic of live theatre. She also believed that there should be no empty seats in any theatre, at any show. Audrey's legacy is to ensure that the arts in Arizona will remain alive forever through generations to come.
