Karrie appeared in over 2700 performances in “Phantom of the Opera,” and was twice voted the world’s favorite Phantom by the worldwide Phantom Appreciation Society. He’s also performed in “Jesus Christ Superstar” and “Evita.”

Tonight in Heuvelton, he’ll be accompanied by local performers. Tickets are $20. It’s a benefit for Historic Pickens Hall, built back in the mid-19th century.

He said he will be singing “a mixture of songs from musicals” that he’s been in. “… with anecdotes, and we’ll also be encouraging the local school to bring in their choir. They’ve got two choirs. They’ve got a regular choir, which is about 30 performers. And then they’ve got a smaller choir, which is just special stuff. And they’ve also a lovely young lady with a Welsh name called Caitlyn. And she’s going to come along and do, play Christine to my Phantom. And we’ll go through some of the duets from that, as well, so it’s going to be good fun.”

When asked where he’s singing these days and where his travels are taking him, Karrie said, “Well, I seem to be doing a lot of abroad work. I’m a citizen of Canada. It’s great fun being a citizen of Canada because I can work on both sides of the Atlantic, and I seem to—last weekend, I was closing the ceremony for the Paralympics in London and that was great fun. And then the very next day, I flew over to Canada. Then I came on down here.

“Next week—no, the week after—I’m over in Vancouver doing fourteen concerts on the trot over there. It’s great fun. And then I fly back to UK; I’ve got a concert there. And then I fly off to Germany; I’m doing four days in Germany. And then I come back to UK and I’m doing a pantomime for Christmas.
