The Grand Theatre’s renowned youth mentorship program, the High School Project (HSP) will celebrate its 25th anniversary with the longest running show in Broadway history: Andrew Lloyd Webber’s The Phantom of the Opera.
Lurking in the catacombs, far beneath the majestic Paris Opera House is a notorious masked figure, known as the Phantom. A disfigured musical genius, the Phantom exercises a reign of terror and control over all who enter “his” opera house – including an innocent, young soprano. Mesmerized by her beauty and talent, the Phantom desires nothing more than to see her become a star of the operatic stage and to remain with him at the Opera for all time. And the consequences for anyone who stands in his way? Deadly.
The longest-running show in Broadway history, Andrew Lloyd Webber’s The Phantom of the Opera has thrilled audiences across the globe since its debut in 1986. Based on Gaston Leroux’s 1910 gothic novel, audiences are in for a thrilling night of theatre with this timeless tale of romance and despair paired with an unforgettable musical score.
