 “Kopit & Yeston’s Phantom” at the Fireside Theater

For over a century, audiences have been captivated by the tragic story of the disfigured genius who makes his home in the cavernous underground of the Paris Opera House and falls in love with Christine - the beautiful soprano he can never have. Hailed as “the finest PHANTOM of them all,” Arthur Kopit and Maury Yeston’s moving version digs deep into the life of this tortured soul in a show filled with romance and mystery, thrills and excitement, and of course, their lyrical and luxurious music.

 “Rise Up, O Men” at Circa ’21

“Rise Up, O Men!” is a brand new musical featuring the men of the church and your favorite church basement ladies. As these hard-working farmers discuss their scrap lumber piles and the benefits of solder vs. weld, they unintentionally disrupt the order of the kitchen. But that’s what happens when you let roosters in the hen house! Rise Up, O Men! shows us a couple of days in the life of a small rural Lutheran church circa 1964.
