ABOUT THE SHOW
Les Misérables is the world’s longest running musical — a true modern classic based on Victor Hugo's novel and featuring one of the most memorable scores of all time. The multi-award-winning Les Misérables is as groundbreaking today as it was when it first premiered in London in 1985.
In nineteenth century France, Jean Valjean is released from years of unjust imprisonment, but finds nothing in store for him but mistrust and mistreatment. He breaks his parole in hopes of starting a new life, initiating a lifelong struggle for redemption as he is relentlessly pursued by police inspector Javert, who refuses to believe Valjean can change his ways. Finally, during the Paris student uprising of 1832, Javert must confront his ideals after Valjean spares his life and saves that of the student revolutionary who has captured the heart of Valjean's adopted daughter.
Epic, grand and uplifting, Les Misérables School Edition packs an emotional wallop that has thrilled audiences all over the world. The sung-through piece is ideal for a cast of exceptional singers and overflows with melodies that are already standards.
ABOUT BUENA PARK YOUTH THEATRE
Founded in 1981 by former elementary school teacher Ruth Walp, the Buena Park Youth Theatre was a direct result of the budgetary cutbacks in fine arts education in public schools. Since then, the program has produced fully staged Broadway musicals with over 7000 children and teens having participated over the years. The musicals continue to receive outstanding critical acclaim and attract audiences young and old.
