The Phoenix Theater Group was formed exclusively for charitable, educational and recovery purposes. The non-profit group promotes the life saving message of recovery from alcohol and drug addiction through live theatrical stage performances.The non-profit group also provides a positive place for recovering addicts, their families, children and friends to meet as they prepare for their theatrical productions. Our performers, stage hands and technical crew are required to commit to the entire show from start to finish as a community. The community is the key our success. All involved are equally important to the success of the show.
Please note: While the community aspect may seem to be self evident it is important to note that many of our members are recovering from a seemingly hopeless state of mind. Many alumni have attributed their involvement in the show to helping them stay sober. This is no small thing.
