Phantom of the Opera lauded

The Phantom of the Opera was absolutely fabulous. I got a front row seat dead centre.

Dear Editor:

The Phantom of the Opera was absolutely fabulous.

I got a front row seat dead centre.

They had a cast of more than 100 kids, 85 costumes with several costume changes. The singing was good quality. Three hours just flew by.

I loved it, the production sold out every night.  If it hadn’t, I’d probably go again.

They paid royalties to Phantom of $3,000.

Last year or the year before, they did Grease.

This school works very hard. It’s amazing to see the talent in such young people and they have truly remarkable teachers and instructors.

The community definitely supports and appreciates their hard work.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the people who worked, supported and donated to Summerland Secondary High School for the production of Phantom of the Opera.

A special thanks to the creative staff at the high school for having the foresight to take on such a challenge.  Students you all deserve to take a bow or curtsy.

I look forward to your future plays.

Laurinda Dorn
