Santa Monica High School Performing Arts presented THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA - Spring 2024

We hope you were able experience the thrill of the most haunting love story ever told and one of the most beautiful and spectacular productions ever presented by Samohi Performing Arts. This performance will go down in the history books as one of the most ambitious shows to be staged at Barnum Hall. With sold out shows both weekends and overflow seating in the balcony, it was one of the most well attended musicals in the last 10 years.  The audiences loved it!

The amazing set, lavish costumes, fabulous choreography, gifted actors and talented pit orchestra. Over 150 Samohi students have worked tirelessly to bring this production to life. With the help of a small army of volunteer parents and guardians as well as SMMUSD Staff. 


THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA has won over 70 major theatre awards including 7 Tony’s and Best Musical. It is the longest running Broadway Show in history ending its run in 2023. Andrew Lloyd Webber’s romantic, melancholy and soaring score will haunt you long after the curtain drops. 

Based on the classic novel Le Fantôme de L’Opéra by Gaston Leroux, THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA tells the story of a masked figure who lurks beneath the catacombs of the Paris Opera House, exercising a reign of terror over all who inhabit it. He falls madly in love with an innocent young soprano, Christine, and devotes himself to creating a new star by nurturing her extraordinary talents and by employing all of the devious methods at his command.
