New Phoenix Theatre Announces Change for 2019 Season


(Fort Myers, July 2019) Quality takes time. The New Phoenix Theatre, Southwest Florida’s newest community theater, is excited to announce changes to their inaugural season. Why excited? As building permits have all been secured, the theater’s contractor has provided a construction calendar that finishes the theater’s construction in November 2018. As such, New Phoenix has shortened its season from six to four productions to accommodate the building schedule. The beautiful new 96 seat theatre, located on McGregor Boulevard south of College Parkway, will mount its first production, Scott McPherson’s tragicomic play Marvin’s Room in January 2019. Auditions for Marvin’s Room will be held on Saturday, November 3, 2018. The remaining plays for the season are the Jerry Herman musical, La Cage aux Folles, Michael Cristofer’s moving The Shadow Box, and Neil Simon’s hysterical farce, Rumors.
