Students wow audience with three nights of performances

It’s a novel that has been transformed into one of the most famous West End shows and an award winning movie entertaining for generations.

But this week it was students in Queen’s Park who took on the task of performing Les Miserables (Les Mis).

The production has been in the pipeline for around a year and more than 60 students from Queen’s Park Community School took to the stage for a three night performance.

Natalie Moore, a drama teacher at the school in Aylestone Avenue, directed the production.

She said: “Putting on a school production is one of the most enjoyable things about being a drama teacher.

“It is also incredibly hard work and incredibly stressful but most of all it is incredibly rewarding.

“What is most striking about the students here at QPCS is how much they care about the work that they produce and more touchingly how much they care about each other.”

Set in 1815 and culminating in the 1832 June Rebellion in Paris, Les Mis follows the lives and interactions of several characters,

The production was performed for three nights this week.
