Some cast members of the Broadway touring company of “Phantom of the Opera” will perform a one-night-only cabaret of standard musical theater songs, as well as some new and rarely heard tunes, this Monday at Theatrical Outfit’s Balzer Theater at Herren’s.

Cast members have performed on Broadway and in national touring companies and have sung with pop stars and opera companies around the world. They have also sung at the Spoleto, Aspen and Eastern Music festivals.

The associate conductor for the National Tour of “Phantom” and former conductor for the National Tour of  “Evita,” David Robison, will serve as musical director and pianist.

Songs will include “Can’t Help Lovin’ Dat Man,” “All That Jazz,” “Dirty Old Man,” “Sit Down You’re Rockin’ the Boat,” “Send in the Clowns,” a “Merry Poppins” medley, and other tunes by the most popular Broadway composers. No songs from “Phantom of the Opera” will be performed, and some songs may include strong language or address adult themes.

Phantom cast members expected to perform include Dara Adler, D.C. Anderson, Kelly Jeanne Grant, Luke Grooms, Michael Scott Harris, Satomi Hofmann, Juliette Javaheri, Anne Kanengeiser, Silvio Scambone, Pamela Shandrow, Kim Stengel and Elizabeth Welch.

The production is a benefit for Synchronicity Threatre’s Playmaking for Girls, a community outreach and mentor program for underserved tweens and teens.
