Maybe you’ve seen the movie version or listened to the soundtrack. Here’s your chance to experience a live performance of the smash hit Les Misérables.
Traverse City Central High School presents its annual musical next month. Veteran Artistic Director Erin Peck and Music Director Tami Williams have been in rehearsal with the students since summer. Les Misérables is a family-friendly show with stirring musical performances by some of Traverse City’s most promising music students.
Set against the backdrop of the French revolution, two strong ensemble casts—involving more than 60 students—plus a live orchestra bring this powerful story to life.
Based on the novel by Victor Hugo, Les Misérables travels with prisoner-on-parole, 24601, Jean Valjean, as he runs from the merciless Inspector Javert on a journey beyond the barricades at the center of the rebellion. Valjean promises a poor factory worker, Fantine, that he will save her child, Cosette, and raise her as his own. Marius, a student of the rebellion falls for Cosette.
Tickets are on sale now, $15 to $25. Performance dates are November 9–12 and November 16–19.
