Les Miserables is one of the theater’s biggest performances of the year. The matinee was on Wednesday, November 15th, during first and second block and cost five dollars per person. The department will also be holding performances Thursday – Saturday at night on November 16th-18th. This costed six dollars a student and ten dollars for adults. The students have put a lot of effort into this production and look to show off their hard work and talent on the stage.
One of the students fully embraced her role in the play. Senior Mckenzie Paquin was cast as the role of a younger boy, so she cut her hair to more realistically play this role.
“I actually think playing as a boy is helping me grow a lot as an actress because it’s really making me conscious of all my body movements and how I act with my fellow actors on stage during production,” Paquin said.
The theater department is hoping to see many students show up and support all of their hard work. “We put a lot of time and effort into the show and hope to see as many people as possible show up.” Senior Wesley Brian said.
This is the departments the first production of the year, so if you went to support they really appreciate it. They also will have a junior musical and a spring play. They had a good amount of support of their first musical and would appreciate it if they could receive the same type of support in upcoming plays.
