Pupils from a school in Pinner have received a standing ovation after returning to the stage for a production of Les Misérables.

Students from Nower Hill High School performed the hit musical after two years away from the stage due to the pandemic and audiences were not disappointed.

The show that had been months in preparation from the producers and directors, Alicia Johnson and Julie Ann Gardner, ably assisted by directors Hannah Moriarty and John Taylor, was sold out at every performance.

Following the performance, the school received several emails of praise and congratulations from audience members.

One comment read: “I cried, I laughed and I cried again.  So much talent and the best school production I have ever seen! Huge congratulations to you all.”

Another heralded the performance as the “best amateur production” they had seen, writing: The whole thing was completely phenomenal – from the outstanding solo performances to the rousing chorus numbers, costumes, set and, of course, music.

“I laughed, I cried (yes, actual tears!) – it was fabulous. I have seen the West End performance of Les Mis a few times and I have to say Nower Hill really gave it a run for its money!”

A spokesperson for the school congratulated the cast made up of 126 students ranging from Year 7 all the way through to Year 13.

They said: “We would like to congratulate all who participated in the production in every single aspect, and to thank you all for your kind words, your support and allowing your children to participate.  We really couldn’t be prouder of what they have all learned and achieved.  We also can’t wait to start planning the next one…”
