ABOUT THE SHOW
“Les Miserables” follows former prisoner Jean Valjean (Jerome Byrne), who, after being released from the watchful eye of police officer Javert (Drew Sirago), is unable to find work because of his status as an ex-convict. He eventually steals from a local church, but when apprehended, the priest claims that Valjean was given the valuables. This triggers a change in Valjean and he constructs a new identity for himself as a pillar of society and a local businessman. Years later, he adopts a young girl named Cosette after her mother Fantine’s (K. Peterson) death. As the years progress, there is much unrest in France. As several rebellions begin to form, a grown Cosette (Nicole Flaherty) falls for a passionate revolutionary named Marius (Kyan Bujak Harrington), while Javert begins to close in again on Valjean’s secret past.
Come see their stories unfold and their lives intertwine in this classic and timeless musical; and support the over 70 students involved in producing “Les Miserables!
