I love Phantom Of The Opera and I love the muppets so I figure why not incorporate the two?

However, I have a writer's block at the moment so I can only think up of what muppets will be recast as the characters.

Here's my ideal casting.

Phantom....... I can't think of who should play him. Someone give me an idea
Christine Daie.....Janice
Carlotta............Miss Piggy
Raoul.........Floyd
Piangi.......Kermit (with a fat suit on, of course!)
Meg Giry....Prarie Dawn
Madame Giry.....Mildred
Joseph Buquet....Zoot

And I'll be the narrarator! But give me an idea of who should play the Phantom!

In my opinion, Uncle Deadly is (and forgive the really bad Muppet-worthy pun) dead-on to play The Phantom of the Opera. Of course, I don't think a white half-mask will make him look any less hideous!

I'm gonna go with Gonzo as well.

And Pepe and Rizzo can play Andre and Firmin (or in this case Vermin)

Well... At the moment Gonzo leads 2 to 1.
But I'm here to lend my support to my fellow Muppet fiend. Uncle D for the Phantom, hands down. Yes, that means you too Thing.
And it's a half mask the Phantom wears? Always thought it was more of a full mask covering his face but stopping at the nose. Oh well, live and learn.
Happy Frightday the 13th!

I'd say gonzo cuz i don't really see the phantom as a really evil character, just misunderstood.

Gonzo would be a good Phantom, but then we may have to cast Camilla as Christine. And that's kinda..............well...........weird.
But then again, It may work!
