Havant Dynamo Youth Theatre celebrated it’s 30 anniversary last year, and have decided to put on a classic production of street urchins and social injustice, in recognition of its achievement.

Performing tomorrow, and between January 12-14, the theatre company is putting on Les Miserables, Schools Edition.

The musical is based on the novel by French author Victor Hugo, and was written by Claude-Michel Schonberg.

Set in France in the early 19th century, it follows the story of a convict Jean Valjean, and his life after he spends 19 years in prison for stealing bread, and trying to escape because of it.

The school edition cuts a considerable amount of material from the original show. It is divided into thirty scenes and, although no critical scenes or songs have been removed, it runs 20 minutes shorter than the official West End production.

Dynamo Youth Theatre is a performance youth theatre group based at St Faith’s Church Hall, Havant, providing drama, music, and dance experiences for 65 young people aged between 11-18.

Performances run tomorrow, and between January 12-14 at 7.30pm, with a matinee on January 14 at 2.30pm.

Tickets cost £7 to £9 from Havant Dynamo Youth Theatre on (023) 9245 4244 or go to dyt.org.uk.
