Beyond Cinema — the good folks who brought the Mad Hatter's tea party to the Botanic Gardens and recreated Titanic on Sydney Harbour — has turned its fantastical minds to an immersive sing-along edition of Les Misérables.
The group's plan is to bring Tom Hooper's 2012 film — which is based on the 1980 stage musical by writer Alain Boublil and composer Claude-Michel Schönberg — to Surry Hills' John Painter Theatre. This unique space will be transformed into a slice of 19th century France. You'll be invited to dress up accordingly and, once the film starts rolling, belt out all your favourite tunes – from 'I Dreamed a Dream' to 'Do You Hear the People Sing?' to 'Castle on a Cloud'.
Fighting a war (and singing for hours) is thirsty work, and luckily there'll be a bar on-site serving both food and drinks. The event will take place over two sessions on Saturday, December 15, the first from 2–5pm and the second from 7–10pm.
