The Phantom of the Opera - Nelson Premiere
Sun 8 Apr - Sat 21 Apr
The winner of seven Tony Awards, including Best Musical, The Phantom of the Opera has been seen by over 100 million people in 144 cities in 27 countries. The Phantom of the Opera is the longest-running show in Broadway history, still currently running in London and New York. In 2018, The Phantom of the Opera finally comes to Nelson!

The Phantom of the Opera tells the story of a masked figure who lurks beneath the catacombs of the Paris Opera House, exercising a reign of terror over all who inhabits it. He falls madly in love with an innocent young soprano, Christine and devotes himself to creating a new star by nurturing her extraordinary talents and by employing all of the devious methods at this command. Its sensational, smash hit score includes “Think of Me”, “Angel of Music”, “Music of the Night”, “All I ask of You”, “Masquerade” and the title song “Phantom of the Opera.”

Following in the footsteps of sell out seasons of Les Misérables, Annie, the Sound of Music and many others, the Nelson Youth Theatre Company presents The Phantom of the Opera at the Theatre Royal Nelson in April 2018! Strictly limited season - don’t miss it!
On the drawing board:

A series of comedies and one act plays in Term 2,  Disney's Aladdin perhaps in Term 3, and Annie Warbucks in Term 4 2018
