Come Celebrate Our 30th Anniversary!









Join us Saturday, February 24th at the Count Basie Theatre for the celebration of our 30th Anniversary with an evening of music and memories. This one-night-only celebration features over 100 Phoenix alumni and a bevy of songs and dances from our first 30 years and also features musical numbers from classic and current Broadway hits that could be our next 30 years. This fast-paced musical event is hosted by Olivier Nominee and Broadway star Jared Gertner who was last seen on the Phoenix stage in our 1999 production of Jesus Christ Superstar.

We’ve assembled a spectacular creative team helmed by Producer Brian LaRue, Writer and Director James Grausam, and Music Supervisor and Conductor Joe Wajda with additional music direction by Phoenix favorites Beth Moore, Andrew Mackirowski, Amy Fredericks, and Bob Sammond. Our choreography team includes Kelly Gemellaro, Rachel Wasser, Alex Acevedo, Jessica O’Brien, and Nicole Ceballos with scenic design by Ashley Cusack, Costume Coordination by Joanne Penrose, and Stage Management by Carolyn Stefanelli.

Tickets for this event are $42 (Ticket Master)
