Preparations are gathering pace ahead of Rydal Penrhos’ eagerly anticipated Dramatic Society performance this spring.
The school’s talented Performing Artists will take the stage for a depiction of the cult French novel Les Misérables, which will take place at the Memorial Hall over three nights from March 28-30, all of which will start at 7pm.
After a 60-strong cast was revealed late last year, those participating have been working hard during a series of rehearsals under the guidance of Head of Sixth Form Leah Crimes, Director of Music Pete Williams and teacher Richard Davies.
These have intensified since the start of the spring term, and in addition to in-school rehearsals, each member of the cast will also be honing their skills on stage at weekly sessions every Sunday from February 17.
Mr Williams, said: “We have been highly encouraged by the commitment show by the cast during what is an incredibly busy time here at Rydal Penrhos, and they are to be commended for their application in learning their lines and specific routines in relation to the performance.
“The level of Performing Arts talent myself, Leah and Richard work with is truly outstanding for those so young, and this is only going to get better as they become more comfortable with what they are doing ahead of what promises to be a sensational show.”
Les Misérables is the longest running show in West End history, it has been seen by 70 million people worldwide in 51 countries and 22 languages.
Set against the backdrop of 19th century France, Les Mis tells an enthralling story of broken dreams and unrequited love, passion, sacrifice and redemption - a timeless testament to the survival of the human spirit.
