Is The Matthews haunted?
This has been the question for generations.
Summer in the Black Hills is the best. With the return of the comedy melodrama, “The Phantom of The Matthews Opera House,” new traditions for friends and family are created. This show was written for us by Paul Higbee in 1976– FORTY-TWO years!
Good old fashioned belly laughs come from this wonderful cast from Black Hills State University’s theater department. You’re going to love the heckling cowboys and vivacious card girl!
Grab your family and friends and make a night of it. We even have cold beverages at the cash beer & wine bar — water and soft drinks too!
“…In no way was the show based on French writer Gaston Leroux’s classic novel, The Phantom of the Opera… Our show drew more inspiration from Laurel and Hardy and the Three Stooges than Gaston Leroux although, come to think of it, our title was a play on words derived from his title. Sorry, Mr. Leroux.” — Paul Higbee, Playwright
