Opening night saw a packed audience glued to their seats as the young thespians took them on a journey through 19th century France, following the intertwining stories of a host of characters as they struggle for redemption and revolution.

The main characters put on an outstanding performance, ably supported by the rest of the cast.

Artistic director Lavinia Colclough is helped by a production team of more than 60. The sell out show runs till Friday night.
