Brighton Theatre Group Youth will be bringing Miss Saigon, the dramatic reworking of Puccini’s Madame Butterfly, to the Brighton Corn Exchange from Tuesday, January 29–Saturday, February 2.
Directed by Michael Burnie, this schools edition of the musical involves a cast of over 50 young people aged between three and 19 years old and contains performances of stage classics Bui-Doi and Why God Why? from a host of talented young musical theatre students living in and around Brighton.
With performances well beyond their years, the youngsters deliver the pathos and drama of a thought provoking and heart-breaking romance between Kim, a local Vietnamese girl (played by 15 year old Jade Kennedy from Hove), and an American GI (played by 17 year old Ollie Wray from Brighton) set against a backdrop of the horrors of the war in Vietnam.
Tickets: matinee from £14 (£12 concs); evening from £16 (£14 concs)
