Phoenix Theatre Opens 31st Season with 'VANYA AND SONIA'; Continues 'CheapSeats' Program
As Phoenix Theatre of Indianapolis moves into the 31 Anniversary Season and Celebration. "[The 30 goal was to see as many old friends as possible, and revisit wonderful moments in our past. We are certainly moving forward with a renewed sense of community and an even more focused vision of our future," says Producing Director and Phoenix founder Bryan Fonseca.
The Phoenix Theatre 30th Anniversary Celebration weekend included an opening night reception after the 2013 season opening show, Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson, a Q and A with three generations of artists and a large audience of artists and patrons, a family picnic, and an evening reception at the Arch at Chatham Gallery venue that included music, dancing and cocktails and was free to Phoenix artists, board members, designers and staff. "All events over that celebration weekend were meant to be a thank you to everyone who made the last 30 years possible, and we certainly fulfilled that mission," says Fonseca, who is a founding member of The Phoenix Theatre and Producing Director since its creation 30 years ago.
"People came from as far away as California and Texas to revisit past productions and renew friendships," continued Fonseca. "It was a wonderful celebration that continued throughout the entire season."
It is the goal of The Phoenix Theatre to be the best ticket value in town for live, professional theatre. Our ticket prices were the same from 1999 to 2009 - with the exception of one year due to inflation. Since then, we even lowered our prices when we felt the recession might keep people from investing in Live Theatre.
This season, Phoenix CheapSeats will continue to be available. CheapSeats performances will be the entire opening weekend of each show and not just on Thursdays throughout the run. $18 for CheapSeats for opening weekend; First Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday; $28 for all adults, all remaining performances after opening weekend Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays; $18 for individuals Age 21 and under.
