Actors are needed for 8 men and 6 women plus a large Chorus.Rehearsals will usually be three nights a week; smaller parts may not need to be present at all rehearsals. Synopsis:  Operatic singing sensation Christina Joseph leaves a promising career at La Scala and returns to her roots in Nashville, Tennessee, singing back-up at the Country Palace.  There she finds an enemy in an aging country diva and a mentor in a mysterious janitor determined to make her Country Music’s newest star.  It’s a splashy, hilarious Country Western send-up of the classic tale of horror The Phantom of the Opera, filled with irreverent wit, painful punning, and more than a touch of the absurd.Contact:  If you have concerns or questions, please call Pam Schoon at 320-573-2021 or Leonice Prokott at 320-573- 4965.
