Art and Design Technology staff get to work on Les Misérables set

Two creative departments at Rydal Penrhos are working incredibly hard to lend their support to the upcoming Dramatic Society performance.

With rehearsals now in full swing for the eagerly anticipated three-night production of Les Misérables from March 28-30, staff and pupils working within the Art and Design & Technology department are busy creating the backdrop that will further enhance the efforts of the 60-strong cast.

This involves spending considerable time constructing a specific set for the iconic French novel, with Head of Art Mark Sherrington and Design & Technology Head Phil Sutton now pressing forward with ambitious plans from the show’s main organisers with a view to bringing their creation to life.

Director of Music Pete Williams, said: “The outstanding work to create the set for our Dramatic Society productions tends to get overlooked by some, but we are immensely grateful to the tireless commitment of Mr Sherrington, Mr Sutton and everyone involved.

“They give up a lot of their own time to ensure we have the best possible backdrop for the performance, which is going to be one that you will not want to miss.”

Les Misérables is the longest running show in West End history, it has been seen by 70 million people worldwide in 51 countries and 22 languages.

Set against the backdrop of 19th century France, Les Mis tells an enthralling story of broken dreams and unrequited love, passion, sacrifice and redemption - a timeless testament to the survival of the human spirit.

Ticket information and where to purchase will be released in the coming weeks.
