Three stars from Andrew Lloyd Webber’s The Phantom of the Opera will perform Nov. 29-30 to raise money for Hurricane Matthew recovery efforts. “The Three Phantoms” will be at the Duke Energy Center for the Performing Arts in Raleigh in Memorial Auditorium. The event will also be hosted in Wilmington on Nov. 30 at the University of North Carolina-Wilmington’s Kenan Auditorium.
All proceeds will benefit N.C. Baptists on Mission’s flood recovery and relief efforts for North Carolinians impacted by Hurricane Matthew. Craig Schulman, Ciaran Sheehan and Mark Jacoby are established Broadway veterans with significant Broadway credits. They have appeared in starring roles in shows such as Les Misérables, Finian’s Rainbow, Ragtime, Carousel, Jekyll and Hyde, Wicked and many others. In addition, all three have performed the role of “Phantom” in Webber’s masterpiece, Broadway’s most successful show ever. The three Phantoms are donating their time and talent to raise funds for the people devastated by Hurricane Matthew.
“We want to raise the absolute most money that we can for the victims in North Carolina,” Schulman said. “Seeing the destruction and devastation has touched us all.”
The proceeds will be used to purchase building materials for volunteers to rebuild homes. There is a VIP ticket that includes admission to a reception after the show that will include a meet and greet with the stars at the Raleigh event.
Ticket prices range from $20-$100.
