AFTER more than 25 years of packed performances on Broadway and London, The Phantom of the Opera is finally here.

The upcoming Ipswich Musical Theatre Company production will provide audiences with the opportunity to see a local take on the Andrew Lloyd Webber classic.

Ipswich performer Robert Shearer will star alongside Lauren Innes-Youren, who plays Christine. Company musical director Brenda Ryan said The Phantom of the Opera was a timeless story of seduction, despair and obsession.

"The spectacle of this production will electrify the stage. Add to this the unforgettable tunes like Think of Me, All I Ask of You and Masquerade and it's a night of theatrical magic."

Performances are at the Ipswich Civic Centre on September 12, 13, 19 and 20, with a matinee at 1.30pm on September 14. For ticket information, phone 3810 6100.
