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.
I often post here on my phone, so please excuse issues with grammar, paragraphing and spelling :).

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?
