Cameron Mackintosh says of the School Edition, "The Future of the theatre is all about developing and nurturing a passion for musicals and plays among the young. This is where the new audiences will come from. And I believe "Les Miserables", which tells a story of so many committed, impassioned young people, should provide a thrilling theatrical learning experience for teenagers across the UK" The Schools Edition will be generally available for performance from November 4th 2002. Any school can apply to stage this edition with the provisos that no performance must take place on school premises. Adapted byTim Kelly.CompanyWestern College Players.
