Summer Rock Opera 2019

This summer PHAME will be producing an original Rock Opera, to be presented at the end of August at Portland Opera’s Hampton Opera Theatre. The production will include a variety of roles including lead actors, a movement ensemble, and a choir. Some roles will require an audition. However, the choir does not require an audition, and therefore any PHAME student who wants to participate can have a role.
