LSC-CyFair presents 'The Phantom of the Opera'
The Lone Star College-CyFair Drama Department will perform Andrew Lloyd Webber's famous Broadway musical "The Phantom of the Opera" on stage from Friday, April 27 through May 6.
"All the singers in this show work very hard to learn their parts, but they enjoy the process as they observe how important the teamwork will be for a major musical production. They are encouraged to broaden their musical awareness and to develop musical, technical and staging mastery through daily class and rehearsals," said Alex Qian, artistic director of vocal studies, in a news release. "I am so pleased that they are able to stretch themselves to such incredible dimensions. This show will provide wonderful experiences for all of us."
Along with the student actors in the performance, student welders at the college and employees with the Center for the Arts production team worked to create the centerpiece chandelier for the set. The 350-pound collapsible steel prop is 5 feet tall by 8 feet wide by 4 feet deep.
"The chandelier is a character in 'The Phantom of the Opera,'" said stage director Matthew Albrecht. "It has to come to life at the beginning of the piece, crash and rise again."
All performances will be at 7:30 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays and at 3 p.m. Sunday in the Main Stage Theatre in the Center for the Arts building, located at 9191 Barker Cypress.
Admission is $15 and $10 for seniors. For tickets and information, call 281-290-5201 or visit www.LoneStar.edu/boxoffice.
