Sweeney Todd is looking for Blood! Blood Drive at Phoenix Productions Rehearsal Center

(RED BANK, NJ) -- Phoenix Productions will be hosting the Central Jersey Blood Bank for a blood drive on October 8th from 11am to 5pm at the Phoenix Rehearsal Center, 111 Monmouth Street, in Red Bank. All who are planning to donate blood are highly encouraged to pre-register by calling (732) 747-0014. For each pre-registration, Phoenix will be giving away a ticket to select performances of their November show, Sweeney Todd, performed at the Count Basie Theatre running weekends from November 11th through 20th.

"Our production of Sweeney Todd, a cutting edge musical about a mad man out for blood and revenge, seemed like a natural fit for us to spotlight the needs of the Central Jersey Blood Bank", says Community Relations Director, Andrea Zawadzky.  "Being a part of our community and finding ways to give back in clever ways that tie into themes of our shows is a win-win. The buzz created from our shows can be easily directed to help other non-profit groups fulfil their missions to better serve our community."

To secure your ticket to Sweeney Todd and make sure you do not miss out on the mayhem hitting the Count Basie Theatre Stage, call (732) 747-0014 and set your donation time.  Donors must be at least 17 years old, weigh over 120 lbs and will need to present current ID at the event.

Phoenix Productions, founded in 1987, is a non-profit community theatre organization based in Red Bank that has produced more than 100 revivals of hit Broadway musicals. More information is available at
