Pendle Hippodrome Youth Theatre is proud to announce its cast for the forthcoming “The Phantom of the Opera” production which will be performed from February 18th to 21st.

Andrew Lloyd Webber’s “Phantom of the Opera” is one of the world’s most successful musicals still running professionally around the country, featuring the well-known songs “Phantom of the Opera”, “Masquerade”, “Music of the Night” and many more.

Press officer Jackie Edington said: “The story tells of the mysterious masked figure who terrorises anybody who interferes with his obsession of nurturing Christine Daae, a young chorus dancer who he has devoted his attention to make her the star of the opera.

“The youth theatre are excited to be one of the first amateur theatre groups to stage such a prestigious show and have been working extremely hard this year and already have created a sense of the macabre.
