Phoenix Theatre Ensemble Announces 2009-2010 Season logo
Phoenix Theatre Ensemble has announced selections for its 2009-2010 season, with all performances taking place at The Wild Project. The company has also added four new artistic directors -- Brian Costello, Kelli Holsopple, Kathleen Ferman-Menino, and Joseph Menino -- who join current artistic directors Elise Stone, Craig Smith, Michael Surabian, and Amy Wagner.

The company will offer two Mainstage productions. Elise Stone will direct Jean Paul Sartre's No Exit (December 3-13), featuring Kelli Holsopple, Laura Piquado, Joe Menino, and Craig Smith, along with George Bernard Shaw's Candida (May 6-16), directed by Amy Wagner.

Phoenix will also present a reading series of Tennessee Williams plays, including Suddenly Last Summer (September 29-October 4), A Lovely Sunday for Creve Coeur (November 17-22), and In the Bar of a Tokyo Hotel (December 15-20).

The Phoenix-for-the-Family selections will include Goldilocks and the Three Bears (December 5-12), a twisted meta-theater tale of a young diva in training, and the musical of The Three Little Pigs (May 8-15). Both shows are written by Phoenix-for-the-Family playwright in residence, Kathy Ferman-Menino, and music and lyrics for the latter are by Ellen Mandel.
