Phantom's New Star

Phantom's New Star

It has been announced that Director of Performing Arts, Dean Chisnall will be starring as the title role in The Phantom of the Opera at His Majesty's Theatre in London from the end of this month. 

Dean will be starring alongside Lily Kerhoas as Christine Daaé and Joe Griffiths-Brown as Raoul, Vicomte De Chagny. Also joining the cast at His Majesty’s Theatre are  Joanna Ampil as Carlotta Giudicelli, Martin Ball as Monsieur Firmin, Helen Hobson as Madame Giry and Millie Lyon as Meg Giry. 

To be cast as the title role in one of the the world's most iconic, successful and beautiful musicals is beyond my wildest dreams.  Phantom is the reason I do what I do for a living and I’m pinching myself every day in rehearsals at His Majesty’s Theatre. Our pupils inspire me every day and I look forward to continuing to lead Performing Arts at Charterhouse and having the nerve wracking experience of Carthusians perhaps coming along to watch Phantom at some point in the not too distant future.  I feel very lucky indeed.  

Dean Chisnall, Director of Performing Arts

Dean has worked in the professional musical theatre industry for the past 19 years, both in the West End and on tour, taking on principal roles in hit shows such as Blood BrothersMamma Mia! and Shrek, in which he played the title role, to name but a few. Dean played the leading role of Jean Valjean in Cameron Mackintosh’s Les Misérables from 2018 to 2023, initially for fifteen months in the West End and latterly on tour.

Dean will continue to work as our Director of Performing Arts during his time in the show and beyond.
