Phan Does Les Mis - Jan/Feb 2017

Postby TheRandomPhangirl » Sat Feb 04, 2017 12:57 am

It happened. After literal *years* of asking to do Les Mis at my school, this year (my last year), the headmaster said yes. The show played at a local theatre from the 29th January to the 1st of February. We had production shots taken, and a DVD filmed which I should be getting in a few weeks. (I was thinking about streaming it, but I'll think on that once I get it). But for now, I'd like to share the production shots and a few backstage photos, because I'm so proud of everyone who took part in this show.

On the left is me in my Feuilly costume back when I did the show in November 2013, on the right is my favourite picture of myself from this run, three and a bit years later.

Long post is loooong, but there's more to come soon! (I haven't gotten any of the ALFoR photos yet)

Congratulations, Phan! The pictures look nice. You're such an adorable Éponine, and the OMO one is my favorite too. And your Javert is kinda cute.

*EDIT* Please stream the video once you get it! Really want to hear you sing. :D

How on earth did I miss these when you first posted them? Awesome pictures! Yes, let's see the barricade.

I have actually made bullets like they're doing in my avatar. Then loaded the gun with a ramrod, and shot it. But I'm not feeling real good about guns right now.

Caught a bit of the livestream last night, and it was really good. Especially for such young performers!

A bit late, but Phan, your production looks astounding! The costumes, the sets, everything looks brilliant. And that's so awesome you got to play Éponine! You look perfect. :D

Thanks so much! I'm really proud of all of my fellow cast members. Les Mis is a difficult show to do, especially to do well, and I think we pulled it off, occasional cracked notes and tempo screwups notwithstanding.

Aw, thanks so much Marius! We all miss it so much, I can't believe it was over a month now. Still, the friendships I've made have lasted since, so that's always a good thing.
I'm trying to rip the DVD files so I can a) put it onto my showreel and b) put it on youtube so I can share bits of it here more easily. But alas, I don't have Handbrake and am frankly quite crap at technical stuff.

I'm talking through it with my dad, he's much more tech-minded than I am. I *have* however, persuaded our head of tech to give me the rehearsal video from when I subbed in as Marius, because let's face it, that will be hilarious to watch.
I was thinking about streaming it again, along with maybe some of my salvaged audio and bits of video I have, now that it's the easter holidays.

(Apologies for the double post)

And they've returned, with a gif and two videos to show for it! Because I finally figured out how Handbrake works. Go figure.

In hindsight, so do I. At the time though, good lord I couldn't see a thing. It was worse during the previews; I nearly tripped over into the pit because I couldn't see the edge of the stage. :shock:
