    Hi, Im in a bit of a dilema.
    I am in a performance (well 3 shows) of Les Misérables later this week, and my throat has started to go!
    Anyone suggest anything which i can get over the vounter to help stop me losing my voice. Also, it has to be suitable for singing really, as I do alot of it in Les Mis (I am Jean Valjean for anyone who is familiar with the show).

    My sazophone playing friend says don't use strepsils or similar, as they strip the oils from your throat. Instead, suck fruit pastilles!

    Is there anyone you could ask for advice, like your singing teacher etc?

    I dont use strepsils anyway, they numb the vocal chords, meaning when you do sing, they are put under strain as you forget they are sore.
    I have emailed my singing teacher, but got no reply yet.
