Young cast captivates Doncaster in Les Mis production
Talented young actors aged six to 19 took Doncaster by storm with their recent production of Les Miserables.
Members of the Tickhill-based Carrnival Academy of Theatre Skills took to the stage of Doncaster Little Theatre over six nights to give their interpretation of the iconic show, and received standing ovations each evening.
Director Simon Carr pulled together a great cast combining gifted young performers from his theatre groups.
The show also included live music under the direction of musician Simeon Lowe, 17.
He paid tribute to the hard work of all the performers who took part in the show.
Some of the many reviews received included the following comments:
‘Absolutely fantastic performance by cast and crew! Congratulations to each and every one of you. A sheer delight to watch, so professional, you make hearts sing!’
‘We have just left Les Mis. We are so lucky to have such talented young people in Doncaster. A credit to the town.
What a talented bunch of young people, on a par with the West End.’
‘From start to finish I was captivated and every single cast member put their heart and soul in to the whole performance. Suffice to say I was in floods of tears by the end! My first time seeing them but definitely not my last! They were amazing!’
‘We had no idea how professional and talented the members of your group would be. We went through all the emotions experienced when seeing the stage show in London and were moved by all the performers from the smallest child to the very talented young men and women who played the lead roles. Credit to you all. Absolutely brilliant!’
