LHS theatre students to perform 'Les Miserables'

Wed Oct 26, 2016

The curtain rises Thursday night on Longview High School's production of Victor Hugo's immortal classic Les Miserables at the Melton Center.

Performances are set for 7 p.m. Oct. 27, 29, and Nov. 1, with a special matinee showing at 2 p.m. Oct. 30.

Specially adapted to meet the needs of young performers, this author-approved, PG-rated edition has been abridged to a running time of just over two hours, while carefully maintaining the integrity of one of the greatest musicals ever written.

A legendary Broadway musical, Les Miserables recounts the struggle against adversity in 19th century France.

Imprisoned for stealing a loaf of bread, petty thief Jean Valjean is released from his 19-year term and not only becomes an honest man, but the mayor of a prosperous town and a loving adoptive father — violating his parole in the process.

The relentless Inspector Javert, who makes a decent life for Valjean impossible, consequently pursues him.

Only years later, after Valjean proves his mettle during a bloody student uprising and saves the life of a young man hopelessly in love with Valjean’s adopted daughter, does the ex-convict finally feel fully redeemed.

Tickets are available at the door. For more information please contact LHS fine arts teacher Pamela McWilliams at (903) 663-7118.
