7:19pm Thursday 10th January 2013 in News
UNSUSPECTING cinema-goers enjoyed a surprise performance when members of Newport's New Venture Players took part in a flash mob to promote the new Les Miserables film.
Around 50 members of the amatuer dramatics group burst into the film and stage show's hit song 'One Day More' at Cineworld in Spytty at 7pm, 7.30pm and 8pm on Wednesday evening.
Moments before they had been milling around the foyer, buying popcorn and queuing amongst customers.
Chairwoman of the group Georgia Tasker-Davies said the performances were very well received and they had great feedback.
The group came up with the stunt to promote the film ahead of its opening on Friday, January 11. They later booked out an entire screening for a black tie event to ensure they were among the first to see it.
The Young Venture Players perform 'Cats' at the Dolman Theatre from January 23 to 26, while the New Venture Players present 'The Witches of Eastwick' at the Dolman Theatre from April 3 to 6.
