Les Miserables at the Arts Club

Comments 3 by Rebecca Bollwitt

Thanks to Susan Boyle, a contestant on the TV show Britain’s Got Talent our local production of Les Misérables has seen a increase in ticket sales.

The Arts Club Theatre Company would like to give Susan Boyle her first kiss. Over the past three days, ticket sales have doubled for their production of Les Misérables, featuring “I Dreamed a Dream”, the powerful ballad that blew away Britain’s Got Talent judges and made Susan Boyle an internet sensation.

Sara-Jeanne Hosie, the accomplished actress who will belt out the song as Fantine in the Arts Club production, has been inundated with emails of the clip from friends and family. “I’m excited that, with her spirit and incredible voice, Susan Boyle has connected people to the beauty and power of this song. But mostly it’s a relief that if I get hit by a bus, the Arts Club knows exactly who to ask to replace me!”

The 40-something who lives at home with her cat wowed global audiences this past week. As a result over over 30 million people have flocked to YouTube to check out her moment of glory and Vancouverites were reminded about how magical this theatrical masterpiece truly is.

    I’m taking Robyn in June. 4th row center orchestra. They have an under 30 category for ticket prices 🙂

    I saw it at the QueenE a couple years ago. Wonder how much different this production of it will be since the Stanley is a bit smaller 😉
