I heart Ken Caswell. <3

Sounds like an amazing course. I'd drop everything if I were more inclined to perform or if I was an actor. Even so, just discussing the original production and getting inside info would be worth it. Sadly I begin university around that time and will be financially drained from my upcoming London trip.

But thanks for the invite. I'm sure it will be an invaluable experience for aspiring performers and a great deal of fun for fans alike.

It's going to be a lot of fun. Ken is full of anecdotes and will also be giving a talk about his experiences of the show. There are a load of songs from the original production that were cut which really interest me.

I'll pass on your love to Ken!

If only I was three years older...
I'm rather annoyed that you have to be over 18. I suppose it's to do with health and safety or licensing or something. Still, how are they going to do scenes with Gavroche and Little Cosette?

It's because it isn't a residential workshop so we can't accept under 18's.
We are considering it for next year though depending on demand for it.

This is extremely frustrating

Im would jump at the chance, and weston super mare is easy to travel to for me.

Unfortunately I have already agreed to take part in a production of Spring awakening which clashes with those dates...

How annoying =(
