Over the past 15 years, Bethel University’s Renaissance Theatre program has captivated audiences throughout West Tennessee. With past musical performances such as Mary Poppins, Hairspray, The Little Mermaid, Smokey Joe's Cafe’, and Les Miserables, Phantom is the next in a long line of large-scale productions. Renaissance Theatre is once again partnering with the Dixie Carter Performing Arts Center to present five performances of the show.

“We know that there is an expectation and an excitement surrounding a show that is this well known,” says Aubrey Doyle, director of Renaissance theatre. “We plan to meet and exceed expectations of what a college theatre program can do with this classic musical.”

The Phantom of the Opera is one of the most well known musicals of all time. Broadway has recently announced a closing date for February of 2023. After Phantom closes, it will have played 13,925 shows during its run on the Broadway stage.

With timeless songs such as “The Phantom of the Opera”, “All I Ask of You”, “Masquerade”, and “Music of the Night”, audiences are sure to fall in love with The Phantom of the Opera all over again. Renaissance Theatre will bring this show to life with elaborate costumes, an incredible set, and tremendous energy that you can always expect from this theatre troupe.
