Franc D’Ambrosio will bring his newest one-man show to Leach Theatre this month as part of Missouri S&T’s 2009-10 Campus Performing Arts Series.
The artist, who wowed the Leach Theatre audience last year with his Broadway show, returns to present Hollywood, featuring songs from the silver screen. D’Ambrosio will perform at 2 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 15, in Leach Theatre of Castleman Hall.
Tickets are $35 for adults and $25 for students. Leach Theatre is offering a $5 per ticket discount for groups of 10 or more. The first 75 tickets for Missouri S&T students are free.
Tickets are available online, or from the Leach Theatre Box Office. Box office hours are 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday. Call 341-4219 for more information.
D’Ambrosio’s Hollywood showcases his breathtaking voice and charismatic stage presence as he illustrates the Hollywood story with such classics as “Singing in the Rain,” “Some Enchanted Evening,” “As Time Goes By” and “Moon River.”
Best known for his role as Phantom in Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Tony Award-winning The Phantom of the Opera, D’Ambrosio portrayed the character nearly 3,000 times, earning him the title “The World’s Longest Running Phantom.” As part of this performance, he will reprise the role of Phantom to perform two songs from the opera with selected talent from the community.
Leach Theatre will offer discounted tickets through its “Back Row Club” one hour prior to the event, should tickets remain for the show. The seats in the last row of the theater will be sold for $10 each prior to the performance.
This performance is sponsored in part by Terry Harris of Andrew Garrett Inc. and the Phelps County Regional Medical Center Medical Group. Additional funding for the Missouri S&T Campus Performing Arts Series is provided by the Missouri S&T Endowment for the Performing Arts, the Missouri Arts Council and the Maxwell C. Weiner Endowment for the Performing Arts.
