HAVING attended Les Miserable by CATS (Chatteris Amateur Thespian Society), I would like to tell readers how impressed I was by several performances, particularly from those with singing roles.

The roles of the conniving Monsieur and Madame Thenardier were very ably portrayed by Perry Dennis and Nicky Marsh, whilst Aimee Peart-Webb and Luke Barton positively shone as the young lovers Cosette and Marius.

Many strong performances came from the rest of the cast, but particularly worthy of a mention are Holly Savage (Eponine) and Liz Dowler (Fantine) who performed their singing roles with great charm and aplomb, whilst Brian Watson played a delightful humorous cameo 'in the dock' as Champmathieu.

All in all, I feel CATS can be very proud of having effectively pulled off a very complicated and challenging production.
