Bury St Edmunds based choir the Voice Squad will transform the stage at The Apex into 1970s Vietnam for its 21st anniversary production of Miss Saigon (school edition) this weekend.
The hit West End musical, penned by the writers of Les Misérables, is set during the Vietnam War and features a romance between an American GI and Vietnamese bar girl.
Birgitta Kenyon, founder of Voice Squad and musical director, said: “The cast of the Voice Squad is in a state of massive excitement, as show weekend approaches. Miss Saigon is our big production of the year, and it also marks the 21st anniversary of the creation of this group of talented and fearless teenagers.
“All 40 of them have been in intensive rehearsals for the past ten days, putting together energetic and beautiful oriental dance routines and epic belting West End ballads and chorus numbers. Yesterday marked the long-awaited arrival of the helicopter, and we can’t wait to get our performance up and running.”
“The show may be coming to the West End next year, but we’ll have got there first,” she added.
Performances will take place at 3pm and 7pm on Saturday and Sunday. For tickets, visit email@example.com or call 01284 758000.
