Windsor pupils bringing Les Mis to life

One of the world's most popular stage shows is to be brought to life by The Windsor Upper Schools Music Department.


Pupils at The Windsor Boys' School and Windsor Girls' School are preparing for the big challenge of performing Les Miserables at the end of the month.

It will feature 60 pupils and is being staged in the main hall at the Boys' School in Maidenhead Road.

The cast is working under the direction of James Manwaring, who is director of music at the schools.

He said: "Music has become a way of life for some of the pupils. But Les Mis is probably our biggest challenge yet. We carried out the auditions in the summer and started rehearsals at the start of term.

"We are rehearsing twice a week and on Sundays. We are bringing in professional musicians to play, but some of our pupils will be in there with them."

You can see Les Mis at the school from November 26-29, starting 7.30pm.

Tickets cost £12 for adults and £8 for students.
