The York Orchard Musical Theatre Company presents The Phantom of the Opera, an Amateur Youth production by arrangement with The Really Useful Group Ltd.

York Phantom of the Opera

Tonight I’m excited to be heading to this local production of The Phantom of the Opera.

This has long been my favourite musical and the popular show is now in its 30th year in the West End.

This much loved musical features music by Andrew Lloyd Webber and lyrics by Charles Hart with additions from Richard Stilgoe.

I’ve not seen anything by this group before but I heard a lot of good things about their production of Jekyll & Hyde the Musical last year.

Hopefully they’ll do the show justice. By the looks of their Facebook page, it should be impressive. We’ll let you know how it is!
