Phoenix Players have been busy planning and we finally are able to announce our upcoming shows!
Firstly, we are thrilled to announce that we will be putting on the Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award winning musical Next to Normal, book and lyrics by Brian Yorkey and music by Tom Kitt. Next to Normal is a powerful and confronting musical that deals with one woman’s struggles with mental illness and the effect it has on her family.
Next, we are equally pleased to announce the musical Spring Awakening, music by Duncan Sheik and book and lyrics by Steven Sater. Another powerhouse of a show based on the Frank Wedenkind play of the same name.
Both productions are in association with Hal Leonard Australia Pty Ltd.
Stay tuned for more information regarding these two exciting shows!
