This summer, the Grand Opera House will present Miss Saigon® School Edition, with a cast of 60 talented young people aged 16-18. Congratulations to two very talented pupils from Aquinas who fought-off stiff competition to achieve two of the eight Lead roles: Conor O’ Brien as The Engineer and Lara Mulgrew as Ellen.

“The Summer Youth Project is a terrific opportunity for young people to develop their performance skills, build confidence and work with a professional director, choreographer, musical director and technical team. The superb talent of the young people is matched by terrific staging, lighting and special effects in a production of a major musical befitting of the Grand Opera House stage.”

Miss Saigon® School Edition runs at the Grand Opera House from Thursday 18 to Sunday 21 July, 2019.
