Gallery: Cast of pupils from Framlingham put passion into classic musical Les Mis�rables

PUPILS at a Suffolk school will take to the stage today for the last of three performances of a classic musical.

The adaptation of Victor Hugo’s Les Mis�rables, set in 19th-century France, is being played out by youngsters at Thomas Mills High School, in Framlingham.

The tale of passion, sacrifice and redemption has been a stage hit for years and an adaptation is due to bet a big-screen release next month.

It charts the journey of French peasant and paroled prisoner Jean Valjean and his search of salvation while pursued by a police inspector, Javert.

The curtain falls on the Thomas Mills production this evening, following two nights of performances to sold-out audiences.
