WALLASEY School are staging their own gripping performance of Alain Boubliland Claude-Michel Schonberg’s Les Miserables next week.
The school edition of the musical - performed at Wallasey School, Birket Avenue, Moreton from Tuesday to Thursday, February 11-13 -is set against the backdrop of 19th-century France.
It tells the story of broken dreams and unrequited love, passion, sacrifice and redemption.
Wallasey School’s students have an extraordinary talent for Performing Arts and previous years’ productions have included big box office favourites such as We Will Rock You, Sweeney Todd and Grease the Musical, which they performed in London’s West End as winners of Sky One’s Musical Competition.
The students have been rehearsing hard for the show since the start of the new school year in September.
It will be performed by a cast of over 40 pupils,ranging from all year groups, who were put through a rigorous audition process to secure their part in this year’s production.
A number of pupils will also be carrying out vital roles backstage in costume, staging, makeup, sound and lighting. Joe Dutfield, Head of Drama and Director of the production said: “The performance of Les Miserables promises not to disappoint its audience.
"Myself, and all the staff at the school are really look forward to seeing the culmination of all the student’s hard work and dedication.
"We would encourage everyone to come along and be part of what will be a wonderfully entertaining evening”.
Tickets can be purchased from the school office between 8am – 4pm:
