It’s been almost two decades since Andrew Lloyd-Weber’s popular musical ‚ÄúPhantom of the Opera‚Äù was first performed in London.
On Feb. 7-8 in Steilacoom, the Phantom returns. Sort of.
Actually, since this is the West, it’s called ‚ÄúPhantom of the Horse Op’ry.‚Äù A spoof on that celebrated production, POHO is ‚Äúvery campy, and quite funny,‚Äù according to Virginia Yanoff. She and Samantha Foyil are co-directors for the production by Steilacoom’s Pioneer Middle School drama club students.
The two-fer production also features ‚ÄúMy Miss Right.‚Äù
‚ÄúMy Miss Right‚Äù is a comedy – romance in which a young girl provides a rock star with ‚Äúsome good advice about being a successful human being,‚Äù Yanoff adds.
The curtain rises at 7 pm in in Steilacoom High School. Donations are accepted at the door. For more information, contact Pioneer Middle School at 983-2400.
