Showbiz Christchurch presents
April 17–28, 2009
Once again, Alan Boubil and Claude-Michel Shönberg, the creators of Les Misérables, have chosen a subject which combines superb musical theatre with the timeless themes of love and self sacrifice.
Opening in Saigon amidst the turmoil of the last days of the Vietnam War, an American GI and a Vietnamese girl fall in love, only to be separated during the dramatic fall of Saigon.
Their struggle to find each other over the ensuing years ends in tragedy for her and a fighting chance for the child he never knew he had.
Raw and uncompromising, Miss Saigon is an intensely personal story of the losses and sacrifices made in a world gone mad.
The show opened in London in 1990 to wide critical acclaim and has now been seen by over 31 million people in 18 countries. The show now comes to Christchurch for its New Zealand Premiere, on stage for a limited season at the Isaac Theatre Royal from April 17th, 2009.
“One of the greatest stage musicals ever written”…..you simply cannot afford to miss this epic musical production!
This show portrays the harsh realities and the tender emotions of war and its consequences, and parental guidance is recommended for children under 13.
