The Haunting of the Viking Opera was a spoof of the famous play, The Phantom of the Opera, except it had Viking penguins in the cast. It first premiered in May 2009 and has had 4 encores.
It's the day before the opening of "The Viking Opera", and things aren't going smoothly. A mysterious "glowing ghost" has everyone too afraid to continue rehearsing. Helga, the leading Viking lady, hasn't even practiced for her solo! Can this mystery be solved in time? Find out in...
It starts out with two penguins named Hector and Helga. Hector, the director want Helga to sing her solo, but Helga refuses to sing because she's afraid a ghost is haunting. Hector tries to snap her out of it and wants her to sing. Helga then sings, but an eerie moan fills the stage. It wasn't Helga- the two think it was a ghost! Helga sings a high note, which buries the ghost in an avalanche. It turns out it was only the costume designer, Moneek. He tangled himself in there accidentally. No ghost after all!

Hector Alright everyone, it's time for Helga's solo. From the top!
