The Phantom of the Opera - National Tour

A spectacular new production of Andrew Lloyd Webber's classic.

The Phantom of the Opera and Sister Act National Tours Shift Appleton Dates

Due to a change in the national touring schedule for The Phantom of the Opera, the Fox Cities Performing Arts Center announced on July 11 that the show’s Appleton engagement will now take place from June 11 through June 22 and will remain part of the 2013-2014 season. The Andrew Lloyd Webber musical was originally scheduled to play the venue from January 8 through January 19.

As a result, the national tour of Sister Act has altered its performance dates. The musical comedy will now play Appleton from May 6 through May 11; it was originally scheduled to run from May 27 through June 1.

Following an acclaimed sell-out tour of the United Kingdom, Cameron Mackintosh’s spectacular new production of The Phantom of the Opera arrives in the U.S., featuring a brilliant new set, costume design and staging. The story centers on the thrilling love triangle between the mysterious Phantom, Christine and Raoul and includes the beloved songs “Music of the Night,” “Think of Me” and “All I Ask of You.” Casting has yet to be announced for the tour.

Sister Act is a musical comedy (based on the hit film) that focuses on disco diva Deloris Van Cartier, who witnesses a crime and goes into hiding in a convent. Under the suspicious watch of Mother Superior, Deloris helps her new “sisters” find their voices as she unexpectedly rediscovers her own. The show features music by Tony, Grammy, and Academy Award winner Alan Menken (The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast) along with lyrics by Glenn Slater. The cast includes Ta’Rea Campbell as Deloris Van Cartier, Hollis Resnik as Mother Superior, Kingsley Leggs as Curtis Jackson, E. Clayton Cornelious as Eddie Souther, Florrie Bagel as Mary Patrick and Lael Van Keuren as Mary Robert.

The rest of the 2013-2014 Kimberly-Clark Broadway Across America series includes Memphis, Flashdance, Wicked, Ghost the Musical and Beauty and the Beast.
