New theater program to benefit nonprofits

Phoenix Productions, the Red Bankbased nonprofit community theater organization, has announced a new program to benefit other nonprofit organizations.

Dubbed Fundraiser Fridays, the program allows nonprofit organizations to purchase tickets for Phoenix Productions shows at a substantially discounted rate to resell at face value and pocket the difference.

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

Phoenix Productions presents four major Broadway musicals each year at the Count Basie Theatre.

The next show will be “White Christmas,” which features 17 songs by Irvin Berlin. The musical will open Nov. 15.
