Go behind-the-scenes of Wright State University’s production of The Phantom of the Opera.
In the first episode of the Follow the Phantom series, director W. Stuart McDowell discusses the popularity and plot of The Phantom of the Opera. We also introduce you to Casey Jordan, the junior musical theatre major tackling the show’s title role. He gives us an insider’s look at the audition process and show us a sneak peek of the production’s first rehearsals.
Andrew Lloyd Webber’s gothic musical tells the story of a twisted musical genius and his dangerously obsessive love for young soprano capable of giving life to his songs. Winner of seven Tony Awards, the The Phantom of the Opera is currently the longest-running show on Broadway.
Wright State’s production runs May 10-27, 2012. For tickets or more information, call the Box Office at (937) 775-2500.
Look for future Follow the Phantom episodes to join Casey as he becomes The Phantom of the Opera.
