Chelsea Middleton and Steve Ash lead The Phantom of the Opera

Director Steve Pavis says, ”I have literally been both humbled and blown away by the talent that has come forward to be a part of this show – including 10 new cast members. Those on stage are supported by experienced lighting, sound, and projection teams, and backed by makers of some 100 costumes, and incredible set constructors. They are justifiably proud of four 3.5 meter high, 3-sided “toblerones” which fluidly move and rotate to create impressive scene changes.

“The audience, of all ages, will be transported into the realms of each show’s story. With such a wide variety of music, its hard to predict which song one might be humming when leaving the theatre. But I’m sure the songs will be playing in your head.”
