Phantom–The Las Vegas Spectacular is pleased to have donated 850 tickets to local troops from Nellis and Creech Air Force Bases, many who have recently returned from Iraq and Afghanistan, as part of the “ticket match” military promotion (Picture above: Colonel Steven Winklmann, Anthony Crivello -“The Phantom,” Brigadier General David Thompson, Kristi Holden -“Christine,” Colonel Steven Garland, Andrew Ragone -“Raoul” – Photo credit: Michael Morales / Cashman Photo).
For every full priced ticket purchased by the public, Phantom-The Las Vegas Spectacular donated one ticket to the brave men and woman of Nellis and Creech Air Force Bases. Troops of all ranks and ages, from the Wing Commander to the Airmen, attended the show over four dates this Fall.
On Friday, October 15, senior leaders from Nellis Air Force Base, including Wing Commander Colonel Steven Garland, Vice Wing Commander Colonel Steven Winklmann and Senior Representative Brigadier General David Thompson, attended the show with approximately 100 troops and their families. Following the show, the leaders went backstage to meet and thank the cast for the generous donation that has allowed hundreds of troops and their families to see the incredible show. The cast and crew of Phantom, in addition to the producers, are honored to have the troops attend as their special guests and are beyond grateful for their service and dedication.
