Auditions for “The Phantom of the Opera House,” written by Germaine Hupe of the Winters Theatre Company, will take place on Sunday, March 25, and Monday, March 26, at 7:30 p.m. in the Winters Community Center and will consist of cold script readings.

Performances will be dinner theater on Saturday and Sunday, May 19 and 20, at the Palms Playhouse in Winters.

The Phantom of the Opera House is a melodrama and interactive comedy.

This melodrama is loosely based upon Winters history. The play includes all the traditional elements of melodrama (villain, hero, heroine, boos, hisses, and cheers from the audience).

The story begins in the present and quickly fades into the 1890s. The action concerns a theatrical family who own the historic Winters Opera House. The plot thickens when a dastardly villain/phantom attempts to create havoc by burning down the Opera House and destroying the reputation of the good family.
