Come and hear the people sing the songs of angry men when Thomson-Leng Musical Society stages its performance of Les Misérables.
About 70 young folk aged seven-17 from the theatre group are gearing up for their run of shows at the Gardyne Theatre which starts on September 19.
Twelve-year-old Bethany Macrae has been involved with the theatre company since she was just eight and she is one of two cast members playing the role of young Cosette in this year’s production.
She said: “Les Misérables is one of my favourite musicals so I am really excited to perform it.
“I have been on stage a lot so I am not too nervous about this year’s production.
“My family are all really excited about coming to see it.”
Andrew Watson, 17, will be taking to the stage for the first time as part of Thomson-Leng and will be playing Javert.
He said: “Les Misérables is such an iconic show so it is great to be part of it.
“Rehearsals are really hard work and there is a lot of singing which is quite challenging but it is really rewarding to be improving my range.
“It is also much more classical instead of pop songs which is a fun change.”
Throughout rehearsals, members of the cast have had the chance to learn stage combat.
Robbie Lamond, 17, will be taking a lead role as Jean Valjean and said learning stage combat was interesting.
He said: “It is the first time I have ever done anything like stage combat but it was a really cool thing to do and good to say that I have done it as well.
“I have been part of Thomson-Leng since I was 10 so I am used to performing on stage.”
Recently the principal actors took to the streets of Dundee in costume for promotional images taken by Shauna McHugh.
Louise Middleton, a member of the Thomson-Leng committee, said: “We are really lucky that Shauna was able to take such amazing images of the children.
“Tickets are selling really well for the show and we can’t wait to see the kids on stage.”
Tickets are available from the Gardyne Theatre box office.
