Moonlight Broadway 2016-17

The Phantom of the Opera

November 18-23, 25-27, 2016

Texas Tech University’s Opera Theatre, in cooperation with Moonlight Broadway, will present one of the greatest musicals of the past 50 years, Andrew Lloyd Webber’s “The Phantom of the Opera” this fall.

The production will star Broadway veteran, Texas Tech alumnus and Lubbock native David Gaschen as the Phantom. He will be surrounded by the vocal and stage talents of Texas Tech Opera Theatre students, many of whom have national singing credits.

When asked for a comment, Gaschen replied “I am beyond excited to be returning to Lubbock to perform as the Phantom in The Phantom of the Opera!  I have waited for this moment for twenty long years and now the time has come!  I am so proud to be from Lubbock and an alumnus of Texas Tech University.   A big thank you to Texas Tech for giving me this incredible opportunity.”

Performances are scheduled for 7:30 p.m. Nov. 18-22 and Nov. 25-26, and 2 p.m. Nov. 20, 26-27 in the Lubbock Memorial Civic Center Theatre.

The production will coincide with the Junior League of Lubbock’s annual Holiday Happening.

“The Phantom of the Opera” will feature some of Lubbock’s artistic leaders:

Gerald Dolter, director of Texas Tech Opera Theatre and Lubbock Moonlight Musicals, will stage the show; Maestro David Cho of the Lubbock Symphony Orchestra will conduct; and Yvonne Racz-Key, artistic director of Ballet Lubbock, will choreograph. Set and lighting design will be handled by Timothy Walsh of Texas Tech Opera Theatre. Costumes will be designed and executed by Curtains Up Costumes of Sigourney, Iowa. Sound design will be managed by Moonlight Broadway veteran Brooks Willig of Western Audio. The Texas Tech Symphony Orchestra will play from the pit.

“The stars have aligned in Lubbock,” Dolter said. “This production has been in the works for more than two years. It will be the most significant musical theatre work ever presented on the South Plains.

“Texas Tech Opera Theatre is producing the event with the assistance of Moonlight Broadway. Through such productions as ‘Les Mis,’ ‘Mary Poppins’ and Disney’s ‘Beauty and the Beast,’ Moonlight Broadway has proven that professional musical theater can be produced locally. Texas Tech is happy to have Moonlight Broadway assisting with ‘Phantom.’”

The Phantom of the Opera is presented through exclusive arrangement with R & H Theatricals.

Moonlight Broadway is proud to present the high-flying musical, TARZAN®! Swinging onto the stage of the Lubbock Memorial Civic Center Theatre in January, TARZAN® is based on the Disney film and features all of the popular Phil Collins songs from it, as well as many new ones written by Collins for the stage version. Adapted from the 1914 story “Tarzan of the Apes” by Edgar Rice Burroughs, this Moonlight Broadway production is a classic-with-a-twist.

TARZAN® tells the story of a young human boy (Tarzan) raised in the jungle by a tribe of gorillas after his parents are killed. Never quite fitting in with the tribe, Tarzan is very intrigued by the similarities he discovers between himself and a young naturalist (Jane) he rescues in the jungle. Soon, Tarzan’s loyalties to his gorilla family and the attraction he feels for Jane are tested as he realizes he must choose between the life he has known and a future with Jane. Come see Jane and Tarzan as they swing through the air in the Lubbock Memorial Civic Center!
