I have followed the work of Phoenix Theatre Arts since its inception and always been impressed by the energy, ambition and personality that goes into the teaching program.

Not only are the students challenged to improve performance technique, broaden communication skills and form strong creative bonds with other students – but they are also exposed to a wide range of other opportunities, that the school, tirelessly works to create.

Workshops, showcases, theatre visits and even fully produced productions can play a part in the life of a Phoenix Student. Because of this the students have a full and all-encompassing arts experience. Phoenix is more than a drama class, it’s a thriving community and the atmosphere is joyous and infectious.
