AN EPIC love story set in war-torn 1975 Vietnam, Miss Saigon is about the relationship between an American GI and a young Vietnamese woman.

Kim is working in a sleazy Saigon nightclub owned by the notorious The Engineer. John, an American GI, buys his friend Chris the services of Kim for the night. Three years later, the US Army has fled Saigon, Chris has returned to America and is married to Ellen, believing Kim is dead.

Following on from its smash hit musicals such as Les Miserables, Fiddler on the Roof, Jesus Christ Superstar, Cats and Spamalot!, Orpheus Productions is presenting Miss Saigon at the Ipswich Civic Centre on August 22, 23, 29 and 30.

"We thought that this full-scale production would be a fitting way to celebrate 45 years since the formation of the Orpheus Chorale and 40 years of producing musicals," musical director Thomas Keenan said.

"The production's outstanding and well-known local Ipswich performers, fantastic music, and magnificent sets and costumes make this the must-see musical in Ipswich in 2014."

Tickets are $35 for adults, $28 for concessions/students and $15 for children. Discounts are available for block bookings of 10 or more. Call Ipswich Civic Centre on 3810 6100 or book at ipswichciviccentre.com.au
