Go Behind-the-Scenes at THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA with Creating the Magic Event

On May 22 leading NYC arts education nonprofit Inside Broadway (Executive Director, Michael Presser) and the Broadway production of The Phantom of the Opera will present a special Creating the Magic program offering an exclusive, behind-the-scenes look at Broadway featuring the Phantom Broadway cast & production crew. These exclusive 70-minute programs will be offered to over 2,500 NYC public school students at the Majestic Theatre on 5/22 at 11:00am and 2:00pm. Since 1982, Inside Broadway has impacted the lives of nearly one million New York City public school students with its one-of-a-kind theatre arts and education programs that enrich, educate and foster new generations of theatergoers.

Providing a truly unique experience, on 5/22, Inside Broadway's Creating the Magic program will be presented to thousands of New York City public school students who will get a behind-the-scenes look at the inner world of Broadway and learn about career opportunities in the theater. From exciting set, lighting, sound & prop demonstrations, musical performances from the cast and a Q&A session, attendees will have an exclusive look at a Broadway show featuring members of The Phantom of the Operacast and production crew.

"It's a great honor to be able to present this long-running & classic Broadway production in our Creating the Magic series" says Inside Broadway's Executive Director Michael Presser.

Celebrating an unprecedented 30 years, The Phantom of the Opera is the longest-running show in Broadway history. Based on the 1910 novel by Gaston Leroux, which has been adapted into countless films, The Phantom of the Opera follows a deformed composer who haunts the grand Paris Opera House. Sheltered from the outside world in an underground cavern, the lonely, romantic man tutors and composes operas for Christine, a gorgeous young soprano star-to-be. Audiences agree, having packed houses for over 12,500 performances - and no end in sight.

Inside Broadway, established by Michael Presser in 1982 in cooperation with The Shubert Organization, today reaches over 70,000 New York City students in over 100 public schools each year. Their programs include an annual Equity musical production that tours to schools as well as a wide range of educational programs that allow participants to interact with professionals in the field and experience theatre hands-on in the classroom.

Programs of Inside Broadway are funded by the NYC Department of Cultural Affairs, New York City Council, New York City Department of Education, and numerous foundations and individuals.
