Phantom Of The Country Opera

Phantom of the Country Opera

From the publisher Music Theater International:

The Phantom of the Opera gets a little bit country in Phantom of the Country Opera. Featured in the Festival of New Musicals, sponsored by the National Alliance of Musical Theatre and produced nationally and internationally, Phantom of the Country Opera is a splashy, hilarious Country-Western send-up of the classic horror tale.

Operatic sensation Christina ("Chrissy") Joseph leaves a promising career and a devoted boyfriend at La Scala and returns to her roots in Nashville, Tennessee, singing backup at the Country Palace. Her mother has passed away, and she wants to make it as a country star, like her mother always wanted. In Nashville, she finds an enemy in an aging Country-Western diva and a mentor in a mysterious janitor who is determined to make her country music's newest star. When mysterious things start happening at the Opry, Chrissy finds out that there's more going on backstage than she first suspected.

Filled with irreverent wit, painful punning, sly contemporary references and more than a touch of the absurd, this shameless romp will have audiences tapping their toes and rolling in the aisles!

The Upstage Players produced "Phantom Of The Country Opera" in the summer of 2013.
