Stroud High School presented a stunning rendition of the timeless classic, Les Misérables.

This school edition production showcased the talent and dedication of students and staff, bringing Victor Hugo’s masterpiece to life on stage. Les Misérables, set against the backdrop of 19th Century France, tells the story of redemption, love, and the resilience of the human spirit.

Chloe said: “I’ve dreamed a dream of putting on this show since I performed in it myself at school many moons ago, but it wasn’t until I heard the talents of the school orchestra that I knew it was possible, under the fantastic music department’s guidance. The cast, musicians and crew were so dedicated to making this the best show we could. It really was like working with professionals and I’m so proud of them all.”
