"The Phantom of the Opera" Plays in 2011
Western Nevada Musical Theatre Company season tickets are now available for 2011, featuring the grandeur of Andrew Lloyd Webber's The Phantom of the Opera. The longest running show in Broadway history will come to Carson City next November in its northern Nevada Premiere.
"Ever since I surveyed this show, people have been calling to buy season tickets," said producer/director Stephanie Arrigotti. "People are very excited - seats are selling quickly. Many are buying them for friends for holiday giving."
The show in its full Broadway format includes the now-famous numbers "Think of Me", "Masquerade", "Music of the Night", "Primadonna" and "Angel of Music." The company has booked with Flying by Foy in Las Vegas to handle the special effects of the chandelier.
"It will be, by far, the most vocally and technically demanding show we have ever produced," commented Arrigotti, who has produced 86 shows for the company. "I've already started working with technicians and set builders - it should take us a whole year to build this production."
The production will play at the Carson City Community Center weekends, November 4-20, 2011.
"But first things first. We have two amazing shows opening before that one," says Arrigotti.
Also slated for 2011:
"Good Vibrations," a high spirited oldies revue, including classic hits like "Great Balls of Fire," "Poison Ivy," "Love Potion Number Nine," "Dancin' in the Street" and the Glee version of "Lean on Me". Presented on Valentine's Day weekend (February 11-13) to provide entertainment for a perfect celebration, this show plays for one weekend only at the Carson City Community Center.
"Oklahoma!", Rodgers and Hammerstein's ground-breaking show that changed the face of American musical theatre. Set in Oklahoma territory just after the turn of the century, the high-spirited rivalry between the local farmers and cowboys provides the colorful background against which Curly, a handsome cowboy and Laurey, a winsome farm girl, play out their love story. Some featured numbers include "People Will Say We're In Love," "Oh, What a Beautiful Mornin'" and "I Cain't Say No." The production comes to the Carson City Community Center weekends, May 6-15.
WNMTC enjoys enthusiastic support from patrons throughout Nevada and California. Season ticket-holders come from near and far in California and Nevada, including Wellington, Fallon, Penn Valley, Susanville, Reno and, of course, Minden, Gardnerville and Carson City. Some travel from as far away as San Jose.
Season ticket packages range from $45 to $60. Tickets may be purchased by phone or in person at the Performing Arts Office of Western Nevada College, 775-445-4249.
