We might be only just coming into Summer...but panto planning time is already upon us (oh yes it is!).
For January 2023 our panto is Jack & The Beanstalk and will be co-directed by Daniel Westbury and Greg Pearson (returning to directing for Phoenix after a few years break).
So... what do you need to know...
We are looking for anyone aged 11+ , both junior and adults alike, to join the cast for this exciting production. No previous experience is necessary...just bring enthusiasm and a willingness to join in.
Auditions - Sunday 26th June 2022 at The Henrician (formerly the Evesham Arts Centre) from 11am until 5.30pm. We will be running a singing/movement workshop from 11am until
12.30pm, followed by auditions from 1pm. Please attend both(sessions if you intend to audition. If you only want to take part in the chorus you only need to attend the workshop morning session.
Full details of the show, audition parts and how to apply can be found here.
Show Dates - Wednesday 18th to Sunday 22nd January 2023; at the Henrician Theatre.
Rehearsals - will start on Sunday 23rd October 2022 at 2pm at Offenham Village Hall, Main Street, Offenham, finishing at 5.30pm.
The chosen script ... it’s lots of fun; has lots of great larger than life principal characters (including Jack, Silly Billy, Giant Blunderbore, Fleshcreep and Fairy Moonbeam) along with the usual chorus to support them. We are planning to really utilise the chorus and get them involved in lots of scenes; so would love to see as many of you as possible (including adults!) taking part. As ever, everyone over 11 years of age is welcome, it would be great to see both new and familiar faces (young and old!) at auditions, so keep your eyes peeled for further details! We’d love to have a really difficult time making decisions about cast because we know so many of you will give great audition performances.
Any questions drop us an email on email@example.com Looking forward to seeing you all soon!

Our storage unit fire- update!
You may have seen in the Evesham local press that on Sunday 30th May 2021 a major fire engulfed our storage unit at Murcot. We have stored the entirety of Phoenix’s possessions at the unit for over fourteen years; this included many thousands of pounds of technical equipment, hundreds and hundreds of costumes, props and sets. Unfortunately, everything within the unit was destroyed during the fire, along with another four business units attached to ours. The fire was declared a major incident and took over ten fire engines to get under control.
Since news broke of the fire, we have been inundated with extremely kind, generous offers of help, gifts and well wishes. It is lovely to know how much the group means to people in the local community and we would like to extend our thanks to everyone who has reached out to us in the last two weeks.
The group's management committee are working extremely hard to ensure that Phoenix is able to rise from the ashes and produce our next production- The Show Must Go On! In October 2021-Tickets are on sale for this now!
If you are keen to offer your help to the group at this difficult time then please do email: firstname.lastname@example.org although best way to support us, is to buy tickets and come and see our upcoming productions.
