PHOTO EXCLUSIVE: A Day With Phantom of the Opera's New "Christine Daaé," Samantha Hill
05 Mar 2013
Newcomer Samantha Hill, who previously served as the alternate leading lady, promotes this week to the principal Christine Daaé in Broadway's Phantom of the Opera. A few weeks back she shared a day in the life at the Majestic Theatre with Playbill.com.
Armed with her own camera and a keen photographic eye, Hill invites readers to join her as she takes center stage for the matinee performance of Phantom then returns to lend moral support to her castmates and snap backstage photos at the evening show.
A native of Winnipeg, Hill's Canadian theatre credits include August: Osage County (Jean), The Light in the Piazza (Clara), Spring Awakening (Wendla), Nine (Carla), Cats (Rumpleteaser), Annie (Lily St. Regis), Chicago (Hunyak) and Beauty and the Beast (Belle).
Sierra Boggess concluded her limited engagement as Christine March 2 and Hill assumes the role beginning the week of March 4. Marni Raab returns as the Christine alternate.
