Bringing the joy of live theatre into the wider community
What is Wagon Tales?
The term wagon tales comes from the olden days in theatre when traveling troupes of actors and actresses would bring their plays into a town in a wagon, bringing the joy of live theatre to small towns and villages. The Phoenix Players Wagon Tales involves a series of clever skits based on Aesop’s fables performed by an experienced troupe of young actors in a variety of venues in the community. It is designed to bring the joy of live theatre out of the formal theatre environment and into places where lives can be uplifted by the performing arts, such as nursing homes, hospital children’s wards, and senior facilities. The show is about 45 minutes in length, following by interaction between the young performers and their audience.
How to book Wagon Tales
Wagon Tales is available for day and evening bookings for any group or care facility. We bring everything we need and only need a small space to perform with chairs for the audience. The show is offered for free, but a donation to offset the cost of the project is always appreciated. For further information, call 810-588-3662 and ask for Sandy Jordan or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Be a patron of this community outreach
In order to provide Wagon Tales, we need business sponsors to help offset the costs of the traveling, sets, props, and costumes. For a $150 tax deductible donation, we will include your business name and logo on all of our advertising, posters, programs and in a place of prominence wherever we perform. This is a wonderful way to help bring joy to those who need it, and to show that you support and care about your local community.
With special thanks to our sponsor
