The BP Marionettes’ 2015 season launches with May re-staging of Les Miz!

LES-MIS-ADVERT

Next month, the BP Marionettes kick off our busy 2015 season with a re-staging of our critically acclaimed production of Les Misérables at the Queen’s Hall. Running for just three nights, the production coincides with worldwide commemorations of the 30th anniversary of  “the world’s favourite musical”; Les Miz opened in London in 1985.

Les Miz returns for three nights only

After months of attempting to secure performance space following the overwhelming response to our original run last July, the Marionettes’ Les Miz returns to Queen’s Hall for three shows only, Friday 22nd to Sunday 24th May. With a cast and crew of nearly 200 (including two visiting string players from the US, one of whom played for Les Miz on Broadway), patrons are advised that no extensions or television broadcasts are possible.
