LES MISÉRABLES – School Edition – reactions to last night’s performance…

Last night was the opening performance of Reading School’s production of Les Miserables (School Edition) in collaboration with Queen Anne’s School, Caversham. 

Featuring a cast and crew of over 40 students and an 11-piece professional orchestra the run got off to a fabulous start which was acknowledged by a standing ovation at the end.  The show features some outstanding vocal performances as well as a clutch of well-known songs including ‘Master of the House’, ‘On My Own’, ‘I Dreamed a Dream’ and ‘Bring Him Home’.  The production runs through till Saturday evening (with a matinee performance) and tickets are available from www.trybooking.co.uk/hma    

Testimonials after the opening performance from parents and staff include:
