IT IS quite simply, a blockbuster.

If you’ve never seen it before, and millions have, then now’s your chance.

Broadway’s longest running show, The Phantom of the Opera is the big summer show at Leeds Grand Theatre where it runs from August 9 to Saturday September 15.

“I'm delighted to announce that the spectacular new production of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s legendary musical will be in Yorkshire this summer,” said producer Cameron Mackintosh.

“With an exciting new design and staging, retaining Maria Björnson’s amazing costumes we expect audiences to fall in love with Phantom all over again!”

John Owen-Jones, who has played role in the West End, is cast as the Phantom while Katie Hall, a contestant on BBC1’s I’d Do Anything, is Christine.

“I believe our beautiful auditorium, steeped in history and built in 1878 is just perfect for this production; with that and the new staging it will be a wonderful night out for our audiences,” says Ian Sime, Leeds Grand Theatre’s General Manager.
