About the Event
Seen by more than 65 million people in 42 countries and in 22 languages around the globe, musical epic ‘Les Miserables’ is still breaking box-office records everywhere in its 28th year. Set against the backdrop of 19th-century France, ‘Les Misérables’ tells an enthralling story of broken dreams and unrequited love, passion, sacrifice and redemption – a timeless testament to the survival of the human spirit.
Ex-convict Jean Valjean is hunted for decades by the ruthless policeman Javert after he breaks parole. When Valjean agrees to care for factory worker Fantine’s young daughter, Cosette, their lives change forever.
Featuring the songs “I Dreamed A Dream”, “Bring Him Home”, “One Day More” and “On My Own” – ‘Les Misérables’ is the show of shows and the only one to see this summer.
School edition performed entirely by students.
