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.
