Students of Monmouth Comprehensive School’s Expressive Arts Faculty are in for a bustling season as they prepare for their production of ‘Guys and Dolls Jr’, with tickets available on TicketSource for shows running from July 8 - 11.

Earlier this week, over 150 students showcased their talents during the annual summer showcase held on Tuesday. The event featured soloists from exam classes, the cast of *Guys and Dolls Jr.*, the cast of *Les Misérables*, the school choir, the string ensemble, the orchestra, the percussion ensemble, and the River Road Band. The highlight of the evening was a performance by Florence Hills, the winner of Monmouth’s Got Talent. The showcase was well-received, with an audience of over 200 people in attendance. The school extends its gratitude to students and parents for their unwavering support.

Members of the cast of *Les Misérables* also performed at the Raglan Music Festival, opening its annual street party on Sunday, June 9th. The students captivated the audience with a selection of songs from the show, culminating in a rousing rendition of "Do You Hear the People Sing?" that thrilled all who attended.

In addition, five students are set to perform as soloists at the Chepstow Male Voice Choir’s summer concert on June 29th. They will be performing alongside the choir, the Gwent Music Harp Ensemble, and various other musical acts, promising an evening of exceptional entertainment.

Furthermore, the cast of *Les Misérables* 2024 is set to travel to Birmingham on Friday, July 5th, to perform at the National Festival of Music for Youth, joining thousands of musicians from across the country. The students were selected for this honor following their impressive performance at the regional festival held at Monmouth Comprehensive School in March. They have been rigorously preparing a new 12-minute medley for this prestigious event. Music for Youth is renowned for providing exceptional opportunities for young musicians, with the ultimate highlight being the Schools Prom at the Royal Albert Hall later in the year.

It’s a busy but rewarding time for the students of Monmouth Comprehensive School, and the school is immensely proud of their dedication and achievements.
