‘The Phantom of the Opera’

March 02, 2011

Dear Editor,

What a gift the music department of Brandon High School gave our community recently!

The production of "The Phantom of the Opera" was phenomenal. Having seen "The Phantom" two times in Toronto, I can truly say that this presentation, directed by Dr. Deborah Wolfe-Sebetic, did not dissappoint! The operatic theme of this musical might have caused problems for any cast. But this cast and crew handled it beautifully, right down to the falling chandelier! Congratulations to the leads who were amazing: Phil Reed as The Phantom, Shardae Rudel as Christine, Matt Yettaw as Raoul and Nicole Ladd as Carlotta. And what would a BHS musical be without the fine accompainment of Joy Miska-Tahaney and instrumental director, Russ McMartin and his pit orchestra?

I enjoy the musical every year and this one was involved, especially the students who worked so hard. I look forward to next year's productions! Jerrie Vollbach
