Doomed romance is students' next big show
If you enjoyed Les Miserables chances are you will enjoy the musical show Miss Saigon, which was written by the same composer and lyricist.
Strode College students are staging this ambitious musical production at Strode Theatre from February 26 to March 1, one of the first few amateur productions of the show which only became available last summer.
Miss Saigon, produced originally by Sir Cameron Macintosh, is based on Puccini's opera Madame Butterfly. It tells the story of a doomed romance in 1970s Saigon between a Vietnamese bar girl and an American lieutenant serving in the Vietnam War.
The Lecturer in Performing Arts at Strode College and director of the show, Charmaine Bray, is anticipating an exciting and moving night's entertainment.

She said: "Miss Saigon is a thought provoking and dramatic musical drama.
"It is a wonderful show to watch and a fantastic and challenging show to perform, particularly as there is no dialogue only song and our student band will be performing the whole show live.
"Students and staff are working really hard to deliver a quality production and there will be a lot of talent on stage, behind the scenes and in our band."
Ellie Curtis, aged five, a member of Razzamataz performing arts school in Street, will be joining the Strode students on stage as the character Tam, son of Kim the Vietnamese bar girl.
Ellie is taught at Razzamataz by Strode student Ollie Perry who plays John in the show.
