‘Les Miserables’ Debuts in Stuart, FL

‘Les Miserables’ Debuts in Stuart, FL

 

Les Miserables

For the first time ever showing in their own brand new theatre, the StarStruck Preforming Arts Center of Stuart, Florida premierd the critically acclaimed musical, “Les Miserables”.  Adapted from Victor Hugo’s classic epic on the power of love in a loveless time.  

This musical has been praised for years with few teen groups talented or daring enough to brave the “vocally demanding” harmonies and range presented in the show.  The StarStuck Performing Arts Center, (founded by producer Jennifer Jones and musical director Peter Jones) seemed to have no problem with this challenge however.  With a cast of thirteen to eighteen year olds, the musical stared Kevin Paul a fifteen year old sophomore at The Pine School as Jean Valjean, a former convict trying to regain his life after breaking parole in the merciless streets of France during and after the French Revolution.  Accompanied by an obsessed Inspector Javert (Cory Jeacoma), a tragic prostitute (Maddy Mills), his adopted daughter (Sydney Carbo), a French rebel (Christopher Mash), and a struggling peasant (Katie Rodgers). 

The cast of Les Miz absolutely “triumphed” according to an article featuring Starstruck’s production in the Stuart News.  Award-winning scores included: “I Dreamed a Dream” (preformed by Ms. Mills) and “One Day More” (a cast song) all performed live on StarStruck’s new stage.  From daring soprano solos to breathtaking harmonies the Les Miz cast left you crying and laughing with their weekend performances from November 10th-13th.  Their timeless songs stuck in your head for days.

The Stuart Air Show

An annual highlight for Stuart residents in Martin County is the fun and also educational experience that comes from the Stuart Air Show.  Anyone who was in or near town this past weekend heard evidence of the air show’s arrival simply by the sound of all the planes (new and old) that flew over Stuart this past weekend from November 11-13.

But the air show had more to offer then just daredevil pilots and their amazing planes and stunts.  This annual event brings in a diverse number of people to enjoy the show and its fun filled activities, good food as well as the static displays.  For the children there were rides and funhouses that kept them active and happy.  Along with rides, the air show had a live concert, displays of historical aircraft, community exhibits, and for the first time ever a real reenactment of a WWII battle scene complete with historical planes and troops!

Residents and visitors lined up to see the amazing stunts delivered by these pilots with proceeds benefiting the Road To Victory Military Museum and other local organizations. Yet while most people attended the Stuart Air show to experience the whole experience, many choose to camp out on the outskirts.

Crowding the bridges, parks and even the Saint Lucie River on their boats, many families watch the skies as the planes twist and twirl through the air making it an event that is bigger than just those attending at Witham Field.  A wonderful yearly experience, the Stuart Air show is a big hit for Martin County natives and tourists alike while helping many deserving charities as well.
