Les Misérables - “The best CCHS production ever....”

Last week, our talented students wowed audiences with four fantastic performances of the longest running West End musical – Les Misérables. It is difficult to put into words how proud we are of all those who were involved, a tremendous number of hours and dedication went in to making the production what it was. The standing ovation after every performance was thoroughly deserved by the whole cast, technical team and all the staff who gave up their weekends, and numerous additional hours, to help ensure the production was the masterpiece it became.

Instead of trying to express how we all feel about this fantastic production, we would like to share with you some of the quotes taken from emails we have received and the comments left on our social media posts.
“They were all very professional, I forgot I was sat in a secondary school watching children as young as Year 7, it was another level.”
“Absolutely fabulous! Pure West End, a first class production! The costumes were amazing. Thoroughly enjoyed it. Not only was it entertaining, but opened up doors into the world of literature and history for the young minds who wanted to know more. Thank you hugely!”
