Council Bluffs residents have a new opportunity to see “The Phantom of the Opera” in a different light.
On Saturday, 21-year-old Donovaughn Daniels is enacting the show in a one-man stage production, at no cost to the public.
From Omaha, Daniels has been a member of Tabernacle Baptist Church in Council Bluffs since birth, along with several members of his family dating back to his great-grandparents.
Daniels will perform the set while his best friend, Allie Gamache, runs technical elements of the show. With a love for theater since childhood, Daniels said he’s been studying the script, reading books behind the scene and comparing productions of the show to see how it was done.
“Sometimes it’s my own imagination. The way I do it, I’m every character, but the main character will be pre-recorded on the screen. I pause at the right times when I am speaking, it’s a fun process,” he said.
Daniels is performing at Tabernacle Baptist Church, 1400 Ave. A., Saturday at 6 p.m.
This is the fourth production he’s done at the church.
“It’s a lot of fun. There’s free food and music, just a good time I think,” he said.
Appetizers, party trays, cookies and punch is available for attendees during the show.
