For 12 years, Prairie Dog Playhouse has tickled funny bones both young and old with original scripts that parody pop culture and classical stories. Just in time for Halloween, the company takes aim at the immortal tale of love and tortured souls with Phantom. The plot weaves the titular half-masked specter’s familiar attempts to win over his infatuation, but the details are askew—instead of a disfigured lunatic, the Phantom is played by Elvis. As the angelic Christine finds herself in danger of being hypnotized by the ghost of the King and forsaking the man who loves her, the people of the opera house have to come together to drive him off with their boos and stern tsk-tsks of disapproval.
