Les Misérables School Edition November 2018

Les Misérables School Edition November 2018

“Do you hear the people sing?”

Chelmsford Young Generation are celebrating 50 years of shows with an unforgettable performance of Les Misérables School Edition. With over 100 international awards, Les Misérables is an epic and uplifting story about the survival of human spirit. Performed by the amazingly talented and award-winning youngsters of Young Generation, this is a show that you must see.
Les Misérables School Edition features one of the most fantastic scores of all time including ’I Dreamed a Dream’, ‘Stars’, ‘Empty Chairs At Empty Tables’ and some of the most memorable characters to ever grace a stage. Following NODA Awards and Nominations for ‘Into the Woods’ and ‘13’, Jimmy Hooper returns to direct Les Misérables School Edition, with Musical Direction from Bryan Cass.



Chelmsford Young Generation is a music and drama society (charity registered) for young people aged 8 to 18, established in 1968. Boys and girls work with professional directors to perform two shows each year at the Civic Theatre and the Cramphorn Theatre in Chelmsford.

The fact that Young Gen work with professional directors allied with the hard work and dedication from the young people on stage and the myriad of volunteers who help out with the many aspects of putting on a great show, from the wardrobe department through to the set builders and backstage crew, allows the society to produce performances of the highest calibre.

Being a member of Young Gen gives young people an extremely wide range of life skills. Working as part of a dedicated team of people of all ages from diverse backgrounds, gives the “Young Genners” a unique opportunity to grow in confidence on an individual basis as well as being part of a group that strives, not only to put on tremendous shows but to have fun and develop new skills while doing so.
