Indiana based, Phoenix Theatre and Cultural Centre presents the best of contemporary theatre in an intimate setting and strives to share all genres of art. Through issue-oriented plays, audience members become aware of social concerns and are challenged to examine their roles as individuals responsible to society. We do not only provoke awareness of our community through stage productions, but through gallery exhibits featuring local, working artists and through our new town hall series, Trail Talks. We want to encourage conversation and civil discourse beyond the content of our productions, so we created a new town hall series, Trail Talks where local professionals can serve on a panel and engage the audience in discussion about important topics currently in our community. The purpose of theater is to catalyze discussion and exchange information; the purpose of the Phoenix Theatre and cultural centre is to foster and encourage such communication and connection.
