The Huntingdon-based youth drama group will be bringing a touch of the West End to town next month with its version of the award-winning musical Les Miserables.

The show features a talented young cast of 80 from more than 20 schools as well as a 17 piece semi-professional orchestra.

Les Miserables has played continuously in the West End since October 1985, telling the story of Jean Valjean, a French peasant, and his quest for redemption after serving 19 years in jail for stealing bread for his starving sister’s child.

Valjean decides to break his parole and start a new life after a kindly bishop inspires him with a tremendous act of mercy. But Valjean is relentlessly tracked by police inspector Javert.

Director of Spotlight Productions Graham Wilkinson said: “For Spotlight’s 10th anniversary production, it felt only fitting that we should perform the longest-running musical of all time.

“Since May of last year the group has worked tirelessly to raise money needed to stage the show, and the set, the largest we have ever created, is currently under construction in an aircraft hangar.”

INFORMATION: Tickets are on sale. Adults £9.50, concessions £8.50 from www.spotlight-theatre.co.uk or by on 07745 522271. Les Miserables will be staged at the Performing Arts Centre, Hinchingbrooke School, April 8-12 at 7.30pm.
