I haven't been following this closely so am not sure if it's really a world first. Should be interesting to see how it goes anyway.

I'm pretty sure there have been several amateur productions already? At like those famous High Schools etc.

Yeah, that sounds right. Based on some very quick Googling it seems that Phantom is already "available to academic schools, colleges and universities" - http://www.stageamusical.com/show-portfolio/the-phantom-of-the-opera/ .

Perhaps, if anything, this might be more accurately termed the first community theatre production?
