Actors and actresses have their costumes; the set is built. Les Miserables opens tonight at 7 p.m.
The cast of Les Miserables has been preparing for the show for about two months now.
“I’m very excited,” stated freshman Shaylee Artus, who is performing in the ensemble.
The show runs tonight, tomorrow and Saturday. All evening performances start at 7 p.m. On Saturday there is also a matinee at 2 p.m.
Cast and crew members have been rehearsing after school for weeks and weeks, using every minute to get ready for tonight’s opening. Earlier this week they were still working on last details.
“I am excited but there is still a lot of TOW to do before the show,” stated director Clint Klose on Tuesday.
Eileen Riley, another member of the ensemble, said then, “It’s scary that the show is in two days.”
Students involved in the production have made strong bonds and have been helping each other out along the way. “There are so many talented people around me that have gotten me to improve,” said Riley, a freshman.
“It’s something fun to do after school,” exclaimed Artus, watching the cast rehearse a scene.
Friday night’s show is already sold out. People hoping to get tickets for later performances should call (603) 717-7670 or buy tickets at the Music Office at Concord High School.
People can buy also buy tickets at the door if seats are still available. Tickets cost $15 per adults and $12 for students and seniors.
“It’s going to be great,” said Artus.
