Phantom set to enthrall at Her Maj

A FLAWLESS production of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Phantom of the Opera is set to open at Her Majesty’s Theatre on Friday. 

The Courier had an exclusive preview of the show last night, taking the opportunity to watch the talented cast put on their first full-dress rehearsal.

It did not disappoint, with a few features – which we’ll keep secret – sure to impress punters come Friday. 

Director Steven O’Neil said all elements had come together for what is sure to be an unforgettable show. 

“There is the beautiful music of Andrew Lloyd Webber, the stellar cast of Ballarat’s leading talent and Her Majesty’s is set to be pushed to her limits,” Mr O’Neil said. 

Remaining tight-lipped about the more ‘special’ aspects of the show, Mr O’Neil said the audience could expect first-class entertainment. 

He said tickets were selling fast, but there were still some prime seats available.
