Laura / South Devon Player

Extra last special performance at the Palace Theatre, sponsored after being "spotted" doing our previous show run of this production, by a London photographer and film-maker who wants us to reach bigger audiences.

Les Miserables: The Memoirs of Jean Valjean is a dramatic new 3 hour show based directly on Victor Hugo's novel. Suitable for the whole family, this brings this classic tale of love, redemption and revolution to life in a thrilling new production written by our secretary, and premiering with the South Devon Players.

This is a huge production, the biggest by far that we have ever undertaken, it has attracted positive interest & compliments from Hollywood celebrities, and our press release is featured on one of the biggest Broadway websites in their "international" section.
All in all, a show not to be missed!

Tickets are £3 each, pleasecall after Oct 3rd 2013 to book.

The South Devon Players are an award winning, small, family-friendly, completely non-profit, community theatre / amateur dramatic group based in the beautiful fishing port of Brixham; Devon (in South West England) and we perform theatre shows around Torbay, and South Devon, based on historical events, usually local history & legends although we sometimes do also cover wider historical events.

Founded in 2005 with the proceeds of a car-boot sale, then winning the Torbay Together Arts In The Community Award in 2010, and appearing on BBC1 national television in 2012-2013, the majority of our shows and projects are about local history and mythology of the South West, and are written by local authors. It is part of our ethos to promote the history of Brixham, Torbay and South Devon. We sometimes deviate to perform plays based on famous classical stories or other wider historical events, but our main focus is, and will always be, the history of the Southwest.

Shows are performed in community venues – church halls, and community centres, in order to be able to keep ticket prices affordable for everyone, and bring theatrical experience to a wider audience. We also do our best, where possible, to support other local non-profit events or entertainment groups working within the community.
