Epic, grand, and uplifting, Les Misérables: School Edition tells the story of Jean Valjean, a former convict who spends a lifetime seeking redemption. Set against the backdrop of 19th-century France and the aftermath of the French Revolution, this timeless story of intertwined destinies reveals the power of compassion and the quiet evil of indifference to human suffering. As Valjean’s quest for a new life carries him into Paris and to the barricades of the Student Revolution, he is hunted by Inspector Javert and the ghosts of his past. Amidst a battle for the soul of Paris, he discovers the true meaning of love and salvation. With the original show performed in over 40 countries and 22 languages, this widely known lush and swelling score features such famed songs as “I Dreamed a Dream,” “On My Own,” and “Bring Him Home,” Les Mis brings Victor Hugo’s revolutionary novel blazingly to life.
This special presentation of the musical will be performed by students of our Young Company as part of their 24-Hour Musical challenge and all proceeds will benefit the Education Assistance Fund. This fund sponsors Young Company scholarships & financial aid, student matinee ticket subsidies, transportation costs for field trip groups, and more.
