Last night I saw a presentation of Les Misérables put on by Theatrix Productions. I hadn’t ever attended one of their performances until this one and I’ve discovered that this group is a real hidden gem if you enjoy the theater. If you’ve never before seen a live performance like this, Theatrix presents a great opportunity for you to see a quality show with little fuss.
The Barry Robinson Theater located at Bishop Sullivan High School in Virginia Beach is small and intimate. It’s a very nice venue and I don’t think there is a bad seat in the house. Ticket prices are low and there are great sponsors who support the group. The costumes and sets were awesome and it was obvious that the group takes their performances very seriously.
Theatrix Productions takes you into a world that will amaze you. As the lights dim and the action begins, you will find yourself immersed in a production more reminiscent of Broadway than community children’s theatre. Theatrix is truly a performer’s musical theatre where children experience a new level of excellence in performance. At Theatrix children and teens enter a community where they are accepted, encouraged and given the tools to develop both characters with intrigue on stage and character with integrity in life.
It was a terrific performance and the cast and crew were very professional. I walked away pretty much disbelieving that this was an amateur theater performance. I can say for certain that this will not be the last show I attend.
