Beyond the Barricade offers some of the greatest songs in musical theatre on Saturday, June 11, at The Hawth, Crawley (7.30pm).

Spokeswoman Lorraine McGregor said: “Recreating West End and Broadway hit songs with amazing authenticity, with a cast of past principal performers from Les Misérables, it is all performed totally live.

“Starring Andy Reiss, David Fawcett, Katie Leeming and Rebecca Vere, together with their own ensemble of talented musicians, this brand-new production features songs from The Phantom of the Opera, Miss Saigon, Wicked, The Lion King, West Side Story, Evita, Blood Brothers, and more.

“The vocalists in Beyond the Barricade have all played principal roles in Les Misérables, both in the West End and the National Tours, and this new tour contains a spectacular new extended section devoted to this classic musical.

“Andy Reiss and David Fawcett devised Beyond the Barricade after appearing in the Manchester and London casts of Les Misérables. David played the lead role of Jean Valjean in both of these productions, and Andy played most of the male characters, including Enjolras and Valjean.

“Also on stage is Katie Leeming, who joined Beyond the Barricade after playing the lead role of Eponine in the West End production of Les Misérables, and Rebecca Vere who played Cosette in Les Misérables, both in the West End and the National Tour.

“Andy, David, Katie and Rebecca also featured in the Les Misérables 25th Anniversary Concert, staged at the O2 Arena, London. Katie appeared with the cast on the televised Classical Brit awards and the Royal Variety Show.”
