Running for a record-breaking twenty-eight years, Les Miserables is the longest running musical in the world. A spectacular adaptation to Victor Hugo's epic novel of passion and destruction, Les Miserables is set during the time of the bloody French Revolution. It is a story of pursuit, about a relentless police officer determined to catch ex-convict, Jean Valjean, no matter the cost.
The show is currently in production at the Queen Theatre. The show lasts 2 hours 50 minutes and runs Monday to Saturday with 2.30pm matinees and 7.30pm evening shows. Prices range from £10 for tickets in the upper circle to £67.50 in the stalls. There are also hospitality tickets available, such as the champagne and VIP packages, which are between £125-£180 per person.
There are also special opportunities for children to get behind the scenes, either with their school or their parents. Packages include workshops at £8.50 per student. The children will receive a history of the musical, learn about directing and stage design or get a choral class with vocal warm ups, details on music in relation to the text, and the chance to perform a scene from the play.
There are also backstage tours for £5, and the Miz Kids' Club where children can meet the cast and receive a participation certificate.
