Press release from Phoenix Productions

Phoenix Productions, the Red Bank-based non-profit community theatre organization, has announced a new program to benefit other non-profit organizations. Dubbed ”Fundraiser Fridays”, the program allows non-profit organizations to purchase tickets for Phoenix shows at a substantially discounted rate to resell at face value and pocket the difference.

Organizations can thus promote and raise money for their causes while bringing their employees, patrons and supporters an evening of high-quality theatre at the Count Basie Theatre in Red Bank.

“Being a non-profit community theatre organization, Phoenix is no stranger to the importance of fundraising and giving back,” states Cindy Manning, the Director of Group Sales at Phoenix Productions. “Fundraiser Friday is the perfect way to allow other non-profit organizations the opportunity to support their causes as well as providing musical theatre experience productions.”

“If an organization sells 100 tickets at full face value, they can make an easy $1,000 while enjoying a pleasant night at the theatre in Red Bank.”

Phoenix presents four major Broadway musicals each year at the Count Basie Theatre. Their next offering in November  will be White Christmas, based on the immortal Bing Crosby movie. Performances at the Count Basie Theatre in Red Bank come with full-scale sets, costumes, lights and orchestras.
