The Phoenix Theatre - The Art of Language Learning

was founded in 2015 by the English actress, author, producer and director Kristi-Anne Seth.

After 14 years of working and leading The Flying Fish Theatre, (and over 28 years of experience in making English theatre for German schools), artistic differences encouraged Kristi-Anne to take her vibrant writing skills and typical English humour to found The Phoenix Theatre.

Out of the ashes rises a new and energetic theatre.

When setting out to learn English one of the most important factors to successfully do this, is to listen and watch native speakers. The Phoenix Theatre brings you exactly this with a quality and a price you can afford.

We combine creative quality, professional artistic and business practices, educational stimuli and linguistic excellence to bring a cultural, inspirational and educational experience.

The theatre is run by native English speakers to bring you the highest quality English Theatre experience.

Importantly, all our plays are written by native English Speakers. Why settle for anything less?

We motivate. We challenge. We deliver.

While the journey in learning another language takes time and work, watching a performance or taking
part in a workshop from
The Phoenix Theatre provides the inspiration you need to continue.
We aim to inspire, motivate and give strength to reach your goals.
