St Thomas More Presents LES MISÉRABLES SCHOOL EDITION TM – Performed entirely by students.
A musical by ALAIN BOUBLIL and CLAUDE-MICHEL SCHÖNBERG.
School Edition specially adapted and licensed by JOSEF WEINBERGER LIMITED on behalf of MUSIC THEATRE INTERNATIONAL and CAMERON MACKINTOSH (OVERSEAS) LIMITED.
Last week over 100 of our students participated in a five night run of the “Les Miserables” School Edition*. After months of rehearsals, the culmination of all of the students’ and staff’s efforts was a spectacle with sell out audiences and standing ovations. The students’ dedication was a tribute to the school, and many of the audience members (including Directors of the St Thomas More Partnership of Schools Trust) have expressed their positive feedback on the exceptional quality of both performance and technical elements.
Staff would like to pass on their thanks to the family members who supported the students through the whole process; from rehearsing songs in the kitchen, to making wonderful costumes and providing lifts. Thanks to the PSA who provided opportunities for refreshments for all of the performances, and contributing towards the costs of the show. We would like to thank the finance office, resources, and facilities staff who help to support the practical running of the show, and thank Mr Roberts and the Art Department who helped with props production.
The production would not be possible without the commitment and dedication of a large number of staff who dedicate their free time to the school production each year. Thank you to Mr Roberts for his sound design, Mr Hodgson for his work as assistant musical director, Mr Olsen’s producing, Mr Strachan’s role as technical director and lighting designer, Mrs Olsen’s direction and Miss Caffull’s amazing musical direction.
Last but not least, we would also like to thank our students for their tremendous efforts, and commitment, in making the production such a success.
We are looking forward to next year already!
