Landfall NC property owners and the entire Wilmington NC community have a chance to enjoy a fascinating theater experience this week only. Thalian Association, due to the on going renovations at the historic building that houses their theater, is presenting PHANTOM:The American Musical Sensation on September 24th through the 27th at The Kenan Memorial Auditorium. Shows are at 8:00PM with a 3:00 PM matinee on Sunday. Based on the Gaston Leroux novel Phantom is a completely different musical than Andrew Lloyd Webber’s “Phantom of the Opera,” with its own music and a storyline that has the Phantom as the hunted rather than the hunter. This production first appeared in Houston in 1996 with lyrics and music by Maury Yeston, and book by Arthur Kopit.
Our local production is directed and choreographed by Debra Gillingham with music direction by Jonathan Barber. Kenan Memorial Auditorum is a state of the art, 1,016 seat facility and the perfect venue for this production. Tickets are $25 for VIP seating and $20 for general admission. There are also discounts available for student and senior groups. Call 962.3500 or log onto www.uncw.edu/kenan for more information and tickets. This a theater experience that Wilmington, NC will be talking about for a long time and one that you definitely do not want to miss!!
