Fort Salem Theater Opens Season with ‘Phantom’
Fort Salem Theater is delighted to open its summer Mainstage season with the Rose Center Theater production of Tony winners Arthur Kopit and Maury Yeston’s romantic musical, ‘Phantom,’ running one weekend only. Part-time Salem resident Tim Nelson, artistic director at the Rose Center Theater in Westminster, Ca., will direct. “Every summer we look forward to a trip to Salem to bring one of our winter hits to the Fort Salem stage,” says Nelson. “This year we reprised our popular 2007 production of ‘Phantom.’ We can’t wait to show it off to the Salem audiences.” Nelson has gathered a talented cast, many of whom have been featured in classic musicals the Rose Center has presented over the years in Salem, N.Y. “Expect some real vocal gymnastics,” predicts Fort Salem’s artistic director, Jay Kerr. Fort Salem Theater hosts the Rose Center production of ‘Phantom’ Friday and Saturday nights, June 20 and 21, at 8 p.m., with a Sunday matinee, June 22, at 2 p.m. Visit fortsalemtheater.com or call 518-854-9200 for more information.
