One of the stars of Carolina Forest High Schools upcoming production of Phantom of the Opera will be a grand chandelier that is 8 feet wide, 6 feet tall and weighs more than 500 pounds. Wayne Canady, the schools theatre and curriculum specialist, said he worked with ZFX in Louisville, the one licensed company that could create the fixture, which holds more than 25,000 crystals. He said the chandelier is exactly like the one in New York and London, and is modeled after the one in the Paris Opera House.
Performances will be at 7:30 p.m. March 14-17, 20 and 23, and at 3 p.m. March 16-17 and 23-24 at the school, 700 Gardner Lacy Road, Myrtle Beach. Tickets are on sale for $18 and can be purchased by calling 236-7997 or going to www.cfhsshows.com.
