Miss Saigon (School Edition) presented by North Texas Performing Arts
August 5, 2021 – August 7, 2021
From the creators of Les Miserables, comes Miss Saigon: School Edition. Performed by an all youth cast with NTPA Plano. In Person and Live Stream viewing options available.
A tragedy of passion and beauty, Miss Saigon is one of the most stunning theatrical spectacles of all time. Nominated for an incredible number of Olivier, Tony and Drama Desk Awards, Miss Saigon is the second massively successful offering from the creators of Les Misérables: Claude-Michel Schonberg and Alain Boublil, and has now been adapted for high school performers in Miss Saigon School Edition.
In the turmoil of the Vietnam War, Chris, an American soldier, and Kim, a Vietnamese girl, fall in love and marry but are distressingly separated when Saigon falls. As years pass, Chris, unable to contact Kim, remarries and attempts to move on with his life. Kim, however, gives birth to Chris’ son and waits faithfully for Chris’ return. When circumstances bring Chris back to Vietnam, he learns the truth, but before he is able to speak with Kim, she takes her own life to ensurie that their son will be taken back to America with his father.
Music by Claude-Michel Schönberg, Lyrics by Richard Maltby, Jr. and Alain Boublil, Original French Lyrics by Alain Boublil, Additional Material by Richard Maltby, Jr
