The legendary, unforgettable musical, The Phantom of the Opera at  Her Majesty’s Theatre has extended its London run until 28 April 2012.

Andrew Lloyd Webber’s masterpiece The Phantom of The Opera, continues its unprecendented West End run.

Based on a classic French thriller about a terrifying and legendary figure who emerges from the depths of The Paris Opera House and manifests the mythic opera ghost in terrifying reality. With some of the most lavish sets, costumes and special effects ever to have been created for the stage, The Phantom of the Opera is a musical phenomenon.

It received its world premiere at Her Majesty’s Theatre in London on 9th October 1986 and has since played over 9,500 performances in London. Worldwide it has been seen in 90 cities and has won more than 50 major theatre awards.

Now in its 23rd year in London, the unforgettable musical THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA traces the tragic love story of a beautiful opera singer and a young composer shamed by his physical appearance into a shadowy existence beneath the majestic Paris Opera House.

A newly installed state of the art digital sound system now makes Andrew Lloyd Webber’s spine-tingling score sound better than ever. The combination of opulent sets, beautiful costumes and fabulous special effects creates a theatrical experience not to be missed.

Phantom of the Opera in North American high schools and colleges

It has been announced by R&H Theatricals that they are now accepting applications for Phantom of the Opera performances by high schools and colleges across the USA and Canada, beginning September 2010.

R&H Theatricals, an Imagem Company and a division of The Rodgers & Hammerstein Organization (RHO), is proud to announce that high schools and colleges in the USA and Canada will soon be able to perform the most successful musical of all time, THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA. Applications to perform Andrew Lloyd Webber’s international musical phenomenon are being accepted starting today, June 3, for performances beginning September 1, 2010.

“Andrew’s passion for bringing young people into the musical theater is so deeply felt,” notes RHO President Ted Chapin, “that he has authorized us to release PHANTOM to schools even while it continues to thrive on Broadway and all over the globe. We always believed that school performances of PHANTOM would bring out the best in each and every student, and the pilot productions we saw across America more than confirmed that belief.”

Anticipating the release of PHANTOM to schools, R&H Theatricals created a pilot project working closely with RUG (Lloyd Webber’s Really Useful Group). In the 2007-8 academic year, PHANTOM was presented — in full productions and in its entirety– by two colleges and four high schools: Baldwin-Wallace College, Berea, Ohio; Elon University, Elon, North Carolina; Carroll Senior High School, Westlake, Texas; Nyack High School, Nyack, New York; Fairfield Senior High School, Fairfield, Ohio; and Capital High School, Charleston, West Virginia.

PHANTOM was “a once-in-a-lifetime experience,” said Stacie Martinsen of Carroll Senior High School. “It helped our department’s recognition level go through the roof, and the number of kids who wanted to be involved in theater after PHANTOM nearly doubled.” PHANTOM was “more profitable and [received] far more media attention than any other show we’ve produced,” said Mindy Reed of Fairfield Senior High School. “It helped gain respect from the community for our theatre program.” It was a “wonderful opportunity” for Baldwin-Wallace College, said administrator Scott Plane. “There was a great deal of ‘buzz’ about this piece that generated a kind of energy we don’t usually experience, which helped our program grow. I’d recommend PHANTOM to any school that wishes to push themselves; it’s ultimately extremely rewarding.”

R&H Theatricals has been representing North American performance rights to Lloyd Webber’s musicals since 2001, with SUNSET BOULEVARD being the latest title to be released (for professional customers only at this time), joining CATS, JOSEPH AND THE AMAZING TECHNICOLOR DREAMCOAT, JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR, EVITA, ASPECTS OF LOVE, BY JEEVES, SONG & DANCE — and now, THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA.
