After pivoting to virtual and outdoor performances during the COVID-19 pandemic, Phoenix Theatre Company is preparing to return to the indoor stage this June.
Guests will be welcomed back with a summer series that kicks off June 2 and features productions of “Becoming Dr. Ruth,” “Daddy Long Legs” and “Pump Boys and Dinettes.”
Two months later, the 2021-2022 theater season begins with a production of “Steel Magnolias” on August 18.
The season’s full 10-show lineup has yet to be announced, but will feature Broadway favorites, stories of perseverance, family and inspiration, according to a press release.
“We are unbelievably grateful to welcome back audiences to our home,” Michael Barnard, producing artistic director, said in the release. “Our stages may have been darkened, but our spirits are undimmed.
“Over the last year, we’ve faced creative and financial challenges and what’s lifted us up is our community.”
Phoenix Theatre Company also plans to continue its Festival of New American Theatre and produce the world premiere of “Million Dollar Quartet Christmas.”
“These shows will lift your spirits while creating memories you and your loved ones will cherish for years to come,” Barnard said.
Tickets for the summer series are available online.
For the 2021-22 season, current season ticket holders can purchase tickets now. The general public will be able to purchase tickets beginning May 31.
Seating will not be socially distanced, but face masks and temperature checks will be required for all patrons and staff.
