PHOENIX THEATRE SEEKS NEW SCRIPTS FOR ANNUAL HOLIDAY SHOW
Indianapolis — The Phoenix Theatre is celebrating the winter holidays the best way we know how — with the fourth production of A Very Phoenix Xmas 4: Our Stockings Are Stuffed! Do you have a twisted sense of humor? Is there a holiday that you feel just doesn't get the attention it deserves? Maybe you need to channel that crazy energy you get from spending a little too much time with family... Well, we want YOU to send us your musings, be it in the form of a sketch, a short video, or a song. Is movement theatre your passion? We want your work too!
Phoenix Theatre of Indianapolis seeks submissions from writers for its annual alternative holiday production: A Very Phoenix Xmas 4: Our Stockings Are Stuffed. Submissions should be comedic reflections on any or all of the winter holidays: Christmas, New Year's, Winter Solstice, Kwanzaa, or Hanukkah. There is an eight-page, six-character limit for each piece submitted. Writers should send submissions via e-mail or regular post. Submission deadline is midnight, October 1st. All questions and submissions should be directed to Producing Director Bryan Fonseca, Phoenix Theatre, 742 N. Park Ave., Indianapolis, IN 46202 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
We will select 10-12 sketches to comprise A Very Phoenix Xmas 4: Our Stockings Are Stuffed, November 27th through December 20th on the Phoenix Mainstage.
Thanks to the generosity of Duke Energy, our CheapSeats performances are expanding to Thursdays and Sundays, so our prices for the 2009-2010 Season will be $15.00 per person on Thursdays and Sundays. In response to the economy, and because we know that there are only so many entertainment dollars to go around, we are offering a discounted rate of $20.00 per person on Fridays and Saturdays (down from $25.00 last season). The Phoenix will continue to offer a youth rate of $15 for those 24 and under. We won't be selling FlexPasses this year, since all rates are discounted from our standard prices, so tickets are available now for all shows in the 2009-2010 season. Tickets for the new season may be purchased by calling the box office at 317.635.PLAY (7529) to charge by phone and will be available to purchase on-line at phoenixtheatre.org beginning August 10, 2009. All seating is general admission on a first-come, first-served basis. Performances are Thursdays at 7:00 pm; Fridays at 8:00 p.m., Saturdays at 8:00 pm. and Sundays at 2:00 pm. Doors open ½ hour prior to curtain for seating. The Phoenix Pub, located inside the theatre, offers beer, wine, soft drinks, coffee, and bottled water, as well as treats, and all refreshments may be taken into either theatre and consumed during the performance.
