Phoenix Showcase to be a Christmas Spectacular

We’re delighted to finally confirm that our full school showcase that was planned for March 2020 will now take place on Sunday 12th December 2021 – book the date out now!

It seems an awfully long time ago that all of our theatre school classes had finished their final rehearsals and we were all set to meet up at Saffron Hall on Sunday 15th March 2020 for our first ever showcase at the Saffron Walden venue. In a noticeably short space of time the national situation deteriorated, the Premier League suspended all fixtures and with a little more than 24 hours’ notice we regretfully cancelled the event. We were ahead of the game as always – on Monday 16th Boris Johnson told people to avoid theatres and our industry shut down with immediate effect.

At the time we all assumed it would be over quickly and set a new date for July 2020 and how naive that now appears to be! After numerous rebooks we were hoping to stage a showcase in early July this year but unfortunately Saffron Hall have informed us that regardless of the national picture they will not be able to stage un-socially distanced events until after the summer break.

Starting as soon as we return to actual classes in April and taking full effect from September onwards, we will commence preparations for a spectacular Christmas Showcase that will take place at Saffron Hall at 5pm on Sunday 12th December and involve all students from our Primary, Intermediate and Senior classes.

Finally, they’ll get their chance to take centre stage at this fantastic venue!

Anyone who had tickets booked for last March will be contacted by the venue and given the option to move to the new date. As soon as tickets are available, we will post the link on our website and social media channels. All current students will receive an email in the next few days to confirm details.

We can’t wait to get back to doing what we do best – staging some live theatre!
