Taree Arts Council’s production of Les Misérables is drawing plenty of favourable comment.
“Miracle at the MEC” is how Hugh McCrindle describes Taree Art Council’s production of the highly acclaimed musical.
Hugh, 89, is a veteran stage performer who appeared in Taree Arts Council’s first production on the Manning Entertainment Centre stage when it opened in 1988.
So when Hugh is impressed about a production, it carries a lot of weight.
“I’ve never been so enthused about anything before,” he said.
“Since the opening of My Fair Lady at the MEC to its current production, the almost professional Les Misérables, Taree Arts Council has certainly gone from strength to strength.
“Its current production is one of the finest I have ever seen at this excellent venue.
Hugh attended the first matinee with an almost full house and was “blown away by the professionalism of the whole show.
Taree’s Maurie Stack says: “Take a bow director Gayle Cameron and musical director Don Secomb. You have produced the best show - amateur or professional - we have ever had on the MEC stage. And that is saying something.”
Les Misérables is on at the Manning Entertainment Centre from November 2 to 18. Tickets from www.themec.com.au, phone 6592 5466 or at the customer service desk at Stockland Forster.
