Family version of Miss Saigon coming to Medina Theatre

One of the world's best-loved musicals is to be staged on the Isle of Wight this December, bringing a touch of Broadway glamour to the Medina Theatre.
 
Long-established as one of the finest and most moving pieces of musical theatre ever produced, Miss Saigon surely needs no introduction to fans of the stage.
 
However, this upcoming production has been revamped in order to make it more accessible to youngsters, meaning it's the perfect evening out for families holidaying on the island over the festive season.
 
While some changes have been made, it still tells the tale of a young lady who's forced to work in a sleazy nightclub during the final days of the Vietnam War and who then meets an American soldier, with both their lives taking a dramatic turn as a result of this encounter.
 
Miss Saigon will be staged at the popular theatre from Wednesday December 11th through to Friday December 13th, with tickets costing just £8 for adults and £5.50 for concessions.
 
The Medina Theatre is no stranger to big-names shows, with the Vienna Festival ballet set to stage a new production of Snow White there in the run-up to Christmas. 

However, the arts venue is also a major supporter of up-and-coming artists and playwrights, meaning visitors are able to see the best in local talent, often for just a few pounds.
 
For instance, among the highlights of this year's festive calendar at the Medina are the A Night Before Christmas show by the Medina Community Choir and a special seasonal carol concert from the Isle of Wight Cantata Choir.
 
Similarly, the best young talent on the island will be showcased at the Isle of Wight Youth Concert Band's Christmas concert, due to be held at the Medina Theatre on the evening of Sunday December 15th, just a few days after the Isle of Wight Symphony Orchestra take to the same stage for their own festive performance.ADNFCR-3083-ID-801660474-ADNFCR
