Trinity-On-Main is pleased to announce that Phoenix Theater Company has given up their nomadic ways and has taken up permanent residence at Trinity-on-Main performance center in downtown New Britain, CT. Phoenix Theater has moved props, costumes, set building and their administrative office to the iconic fixture on Main Street. The Phoenix Theater will become the newest in-residence arts organization residing at T-O-M joining The Connecticut Virtuosi Chamber Orchestra, the New Britain Youth Theater, Roy Ryzak Designs (technical theater lighting) and Steve Adams Photography. A sixth organization will be announced shortly.
Previously located in East Hartford and performing at different venues around the state, Phoenix Theater Company now has a permanent home in central CT’s thriving and growing arts center. Founder Chris Ryan is ecstatic to take up residence at Trinity-on-Main and bring Phoenix’s unique brand of theater to New Britain’s flourishing art scene.
Anne Pilla, Executive Director of Trinity-on-Main, welcomes Phoenix Theater Company to New Britain. “With the addition of Phoenix Theater Company, Trinity-on-Main is now able to offer the community a wide range of arts and cultural programming under one roof. From musicals to opera, comedy to youth productions, it’s all here.”
Phoenix Theater Company has been producing plays and musicals since 2004. Recent shows include: “Dracula”, “Parallel Lives”, “Nunsense”, “The Odd Couple”, “My Name is Alice”, “Greetings”, “Evita”, “Cabaret”, and its signature production “The Rocky Horror Show.”
Phoenix Theater Company will tackle an ambitious agenda with four productions this year beginning with “The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (abridged)” on March 4, 2011 running through March 19th.
