A huge fan of Les Miserables, I’ve just bought my tickets for the Honiton Community College performance on Saturday 16th July 2011. I’m taking my daughter Natasha who’s nine and her best friend and her Mum. Apparently it’s the school’s version so we’ll see how much gets cut out, how long it is and hopefully they’ll include all the famous songs. I saw the west end version years ago with my other half Dan. I spent most of the performance in tears (it was amazing!) while my husband fell asleep. Funny how people have such different opinions of things – like musicals.
I loved this musical so much, I chose to sing ‘On My Own’ as part of the end of summer school student performance at the East 15 Acting School in 2003. Everyone had to choose a song they liked and sing in front of the class. Very very nerve wracking, but an extremely fulfilling experience back in my acting days. I know tickets are selling fast – but if you fancy it, give the college a call on 01404 42283. The show is on Thursday 14th, Friday 15th and Sat 16th July and tickets are just £5 each. Highly recommend seeing it.
