Friday 20 October
Saltburn 53 Drama Group are back after a much needed summer break with our autumn production – The Phantom of the Opera. The tragic love story of the disfigured musician who falls in love with a beautiful opera singer will be familiar to many through the Andrew Lloyd Webber musical. This, however, is a very different version, adapted from the original novel by Gaston Leroux by Jenna Warren who also directs the production.
Set in the Paris Opera House in the 1880s, the Phantom is played by well-known local baritone Bill Greenwood who, along with a cast of more than 20, will perform the ‘play with music’ at Saltburn Community Theatre from Wednesday 18-Saturday 21 October.
Musical director Andrew Pierce has produced a score that includes music from the period from composers such as Offenbach and Mozart and the result is a spectacle of colour, music and drama – with some deliciously comic moments too.
Tickets are £7 / £5 concessions. Doors & bar at 6.45pm, show 7.30pm. Unreserved seating so do please arrive early.
