The Saunders & Co Season
Showbiz Christchurch production of Miss Saigon.
A tragedy of passion and beauty, Miss Saigon is one of the most daring theatrical spectacles of all time. Nominated for an incredible number of Olivier, Tony and Drama Desk Awards, Miss Saigon is the second massively successful musical from the creators of Les Misérables.
In the turmoil of the Vietnam War, American GI Chris and Vietnamese girl Kim fall in love and marry but are distressingly separated when Saigon falls. Alone, Kim gives birth to Chris’ son and waits faithfully for his return. Unable to contact Kim, Chris remarries and attempts to move on with his life.
Circumstances bring Chris back to southeast Asia where he learns the truth… but with tragic consequences.
Miss Saigon is an epic sung-through pop musical that is universal in its emotional power.
Note: this production contains adult themes that deal with sex and prostitution, exploitation, war and suicide. Smoke and flashing light effects are also included. Recommended only for mature audiences.
