The Complete Script of
or, the Dark Side of the Symphony
A concert for family audiences with music by Bach, Beethoven, Tchaikovsky, Massenet, Mozart, et. al.
Story and lyrics by Justin Locke
The Children's Concert was a smashing success. "Phantom" works so much better out here than the "traditional" children's concert format. I've never had a young audience be that attentive or involved in a concert.
--Stephen Bednarzyk, Music Director, Guam Symphony Orchestra
It was hysterical. The kids squealed and cheered through the Beethoven 7, and were SO IMPATIENT with Shamrock Jones and his inability to remember Mr. Whatshisname. The audience was engaged, truly involved... I watched some of the older kids with attitudes and/or doubts: "I'm here...but I'm probably not going to like this." They glowed, giggled and guffawed, and ate it right up.
--M.C.E., staff with Bremerton (WA) Symphony
