Parker High School will present MISS SAIGON school edition November 9 – 11. A classic love story is brought up-to-date in one of the most stunning theatrical spectacles of all time. In MISS SAIGON, Alain Boublil and Claude-Michel Schoenberg (the creators of LES MISERABLES), bring Puccini's Madame Butterfly to the modern world in a moving testament to the human spirit and a scathing indictment of the tragedies of war.
In the turmoil of the Vietnam War, an American soldier and a Vietnamese girl fall in love, only to be separated during the fall of Saigon. Their struggles to find each other over the ensuing years ends in tragedy for her and a fighting chance for the child he never knew he had. An international sensation, MISS SAIGON is an epic, daring pop opera that is universal in its emotional power even as it deals with controversial, contemporary issues. Raw and uncompromising, MISS SAIGON is an intensely personal story of the losses we suffer and the sacrifices we make in a world gone mad.
