Phoenix Ensemble’s upcoming 2014 season cements the company’s reputation for staging innovative and challenging productions.
The ensemble will again push boundaries with a showcase of popular music, a theatrical drama, a much-loved musical and one of the most popular Andrew Lloyd Webber musicals of all time, all staged at the Pavilion Theatre in the Beenleigh Showgrounds.
Phoenix Ensemble Artistic Director Maria Grills said the season offered plenty of choice for regular audiences and should also attract new visitors to the boutique theatre.
“Our 2014 line-up gives theatre fans a chance to see a wide variety of shows that will again reflect the Phoenix vision of quality performances, innovative staging and commitment to excellence – all at an affordable price.”
