QM Dramatist Lands Key Role in Miss Saigon
QM pleased to announce that Stephanie Bolsher has been cast in the Joseph Rowntree Theatre’s 25th Anniversary production of Miss Saigon.
Queen Margaret’s is pleased to announce that Stephanie Bolsher of the Lower Sixth has been cast in a key role of the Joseph Rowntree Theatre’s 25th Anniversary production of Miss Saigon.
Bolsher, an active member of QM’s Drama department, most recently portrayed ‘Bet’ in the whole-school production of Oliver at the end of the Michaelmas term. For her upcoming Miss Saigon role, she will play Ellen, the American wife of Chris, whom the main character Kim finds herself in love with. In addition to performing alongside an 18-piece orchestra and a cast of 40 young actors, Bolsher is honoured and overjoyed to be performing two of the show’s most recognisable numbers, including ‘I Still Believe’ and ‘Now That I’ve Seen Her.’
Miss Saigon was created by Alain Boublil and Claude-Michel Schönberg, the French duo responsible for Les Miserables. The modern, rock-infused adaptation of Puccini’s 1904 opera Madame Butterfly explores the impact of love, loss and the collision of cultures during the Vietnam War.
Tickets for the play, which runs from 22 February to 2 March, can be purchased at the York Theatre box office on 01904 623568 or online at yorktheatreroyal.co.uk.
