“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.”
“Encouraging individuality, confidence, and imagination whilst building solid foundations are the key to great training. The students at Phoenix are passionate, enthusiastic and have an incredible work ethic which comes from the dedication and expertise of Phil Dale and his staff. I am so proud to become a Patron of Phoenix Theatre Arts”
“Phoenix encourages all students to be individual and grow as imaginative and sensitive artists. The focus on building confidence and skills in a nurturing environment make Phoenix the place to be for learning the craft of theatre and the arts. This is largely down to Phil Dale and his team of dedicated staff, to whom each student and audience member owes a huge amount of credit. I am truly honored to become a Patron for this fantastic organisation.”
