Congratulations to Hannah Jones who was the lucky winner of our #LesMisFan competition, drawn on Monday 13 August 2018.

Hannah spent the afternoon at the TSB Showplace on Wednesday 15 August, as part of our Schools Programme.

Students enjoy a moment on stage with Les Miserables choreographer, Alannah Matthews, and cast member Jesse Pearson.

Students from Taumarunui High School, Opunake High School, Sacred Heart Girls’ College and Spotswood College attended an afternoon of workshops including a backstage tour of set and props, stage lighting lesson, learning some of our choreography, stage makeup demonstrations plus a Q&A session with our Production Manager, Andy Spindler, and some of our lead members of cast.

Students then attended (and participated) in vocal warm ups with the cast before taking their seats front of house to enjoy the performance.

Hannah, along with her friend Megan, thoroughly enjoyed the show and were excited to meet our Marius (Ben Paterson) and Cosette (Kimberley Fenton) up on the stage afterwards.

Our Schools Programme continues on Thursday 16 August with Waitara High School, New Plymouth Boys’ High School, New Plymouth Girls’ High School, Francis Douglas Memorial College and St Mary’s Diocesan School all involved.
