Broadway smash hit will play November 4-20
Western Nevada Musical Theatre Company will top off its 2011 season with the grandeur of Andrew Lloyd Webber's The Phantom of the Opera. The longest running show in Broadway history will come to Carson City weekends, November 4-20, in its Northern Nevada Premiere. Showtimes are: 7:30 p.m. on Friday-Saturday, Nov. 4, 5, 11, 12, 18 & 19, and 2 p.m. on Saturday-Sunday, Nov. 6, 12, 13, 19 & 20
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.
Mark Williams will play the Phantom and Maria Arrigotti will play Christine. Other leads include Emzy Burroughs as Raoul, Jen Coogan as Carlotta, Teddy Medlyn as Piangi, Nick Favero as Andre, Jim DeZerga as Firmin, Christina Bourne as Madame Giry, and Danita Bayer as Meg.
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," said Stephanie Arrigotti, who has produced 86 shows for the company. "I've been working with technicians and set builders - it has taken us a whole year to build this production."
The musical will play at the Carson City Community Center weekends, November 4-20. Tickets may be purchased by phone or in person at the Performing Arts Office of Western Nevada College, 775-445-4249. Pricing: $22 - general admission; $20 - students and senior citizens; $18 - youth age 18 and under.
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.
