“Phantom of the Opera” is coming to Lone Star College-CyFair this spring with auditions for emerging professionals being held this fall from 5 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 10 in the Main Stage Theatre.
“Winner of seven 1988 Tony Awards, including The Best Musical, Andrew Lloyd Webber's masterwork ‘Phantom of the Opera’ has become the most popular and longest running musical in the world,” said Alex Qian, LSC-CyFair’s artistic director of vocal activities. “Its heart-taking story and heart-melting songs have made a lifelong memory for many audiences and being part of the show has been the dream of the many emerging professional singers.”
Reservations are required to schedule an audition time for this Lyric Opera performance on stage at LSC-CyFair. Selections should be in English, preferably from the "Phantom of the Opera,” and an accompanist will be provided.
