Epic, grand & uplifting, this award-winning musical is performed entirely by youth from the greater Pioneer Valley and beyond.
Set in nineteenth century France, the story plays on themes of justice, poverty, class-ism, self identity, community, faith, and love that are relevant today and are especially relatable to the teen cast. Presented in an intimate theater space, the audience is transported along with the cast through the journey and questions this story provokes.
Les Misérables (School Edition) packs an emotional wallop that has thrilled audiences all over the world.
