Phoenix Theatre's new "Theatre for Young Audiences" program announces four Saturday performances of an original play:
Public Performances
January 31 at 11 a.m. & 1 p.m.
February 7 at 11 a.m. & 1 p.m.
Join us on a magical journey and explore themes that students can adapt to their everyday lives such as acceptance, courage, and friendship. This brand-new theatrical experience will connect the love and value of reading, with exciting characters and opportunities for audience involvement and learning. 
The Magic Books based on Grimm’s fairytales, leaps seamlessly from page to stage, bringing to life themes of acceptance, courage and friendship as Phoenix Theatre’s brand new Theatre for Young Audiences program. This endearing and inventive show is an original production written by Phoenix Theatre’s own Producing Artistic Director, Michael Barnard, and Resident Dramaturge, Pasha Yamotahari. In The Magic Books traditional fairy tales are given a modern twist as beloved storybook characters from ‘Little Red Riding Hood’, ‘The Frog King’ and ‘Sleeping Beauty’ come alive onstage. The characters of the different stories overlap and interact with each other in fresh, fun and innovative ways singing original songs, dancing, and providing the audience opportunities to participate in the action.
The Magic Books opens January 13 and runs through February 8. Inquire about field trip opportunities or ticketing for public shows by calling 602.889.5293 or by visiting phoenixtheatre.com/fieldtrips.
