Phoenix Theatre Company was first established in Congleton in 2019, by four founding members who were passionate about having a community theatre hub that specialised in plays, delivering workshops, theatre experiences and the opportunity to help people build on their skills and passions for theatre. We also wanted to provide an organisation that was accessible, non-judgemental and professional to its local community.
Phoenix Theatre Company aims to perform two plays each year to inspire and entertain the audiences of Congleton and the surrounding areas.
We believe at Phoenix that everyone should have access to live theatre, whether that being the chance to perform on stage, experience the runnings of a community theatre or to be an audience member, we strive to provide these opportunities to our community, no matter what.
