The Phantom of the Opera comes to StARTS

THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA is presented by arrangement with The Musical Company, LP.

Students at The Academies of Bryan Station High School are having a "once in a lifetime" opportunity. They're currently in rehearsals for the longest running Broadway Production of all time, Phantom of the Opera, directed by Kala Chaffin. This is such an impressive opportunity for these students for so many reasons. Currently, the rights to perform Phantom of the Opera are on restriction which means only certain schools could be granted the rights to perform this production. No other professional theatre companies, other than the Broadway tour can perform this production. The theatre department is collaborating with the IT academy for all the marketing, and with the engineering academy for some of the scenic construction. All costumes, set, lights, props, and sound are designed and constructed by the technical theatre class taught by Mrs. Chaffin. StationArts students in our orchestra program will be playing the music via a live pit directed by Kelly Mayes. Performers have been receiving extensive vocal training by former opera singer, Kristine Lyon. This is a production our community won't want to miss.

Show dates: 4/25-4/27 @ 7pm and 4/28 @ 3pm

Tickets are $5 for students and $7 for adults.
