TALENTED pupils from Backwell School are preparing to stage a new interpretation of the greatly loved musical Les Miserables.
Audiences can catch the tale sacrifice and redemption set in 19th century France.
Ex-convict Jean Valjean is hunted for decades by ruthless policeman Javert after he breaks parole.
When Valjean is shown mercy and kindness by a priest, he vows to help others and agrees to care for factory worker Fantine’s young daughter – a decision which changes their lives forever.
The show involves more than 100 students from years seven-13 in performance and production roles and the choreography, costumes and scenery capture the feel of the turbulent time in France.
