Colette heads for Chelsea!

Phoenix Theatre choreographer Colette Murray

We are proud to announce that our wonderfully talented Choreographer and Dance Teacher, Colette Murray BA Hons, CBTS (RAD), FDI (ISTD), has been appointed to the management position of Programme Co-ordinator with The English National Ballet School, based in Chelsea, London.

Everyone at Phoenix Theatre and Phoenix Youth Theatre will be sad to see her go after six years of stunning choreography but we are all very proud of what she has achieved and know that she will go from strength to strength in her new position.  Aberdeen's loss is London's gain!

Good luck, Colette!

The show ran from Tuesday 8 March to Saturday 12 March and is the third time Phoenix Youth Theatre have been asked to provide performers for the hit West End show.

Phoenix Theatre is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year!

From 1991's Annie to 2016's Legally Blonde, the company has been honoured to entertain the audiences in the North East for a quarter of a century!

We have also seen a number of our young stars go on to great things on the West End and in TV land, such as Call the Midwife's Laura Main, who was our original Annie back in 1991!

The last 25 years have been a roller-coaster ride that would be difficult to put into words. But that's just what Phoenix Theatre's Jonnie Milne had to do, when he was interviewed by the Evening Express this week! Read the full story here.

Happy Halloween wedding for Fiona and Keith

The wedding of Phoenix Theatre performers Keith and Fiona Elliott

Congratulations and best wishes to Phoenix stalwarts Fiona Milne and Keith Elliott, who celebrated Halloween by becoming the new Mr and Mrs Elliott.

The happy couple met through Phoenix and it was love at first sight when Fiona - who has been a part of the company for over 15 years - first laid eyes on Keith when he turned up to help at Phoenix Youth's 'Annie' in 2010.

Their wedding was a beautiful affair and all of the guests had a fantastic time celebrating the occasion. Everyone in Phoenix Theatre and Phoenix Youth Theatre wishes Fiona and Keith health, wealth and happiness going forward.
