Epic, grand and uplifting. Les Misérables packs an emotional punch that has thrilled audiences all over the world. Now the world’s best selling musical arrives at The Regal Theatre. Performed by an incredibly talented cast of under 20 year olds from across Somerset and supported by a live orchestra, Les Misérables School Edition is an entirely sung musical overflowing with melodies that are already standards, including ‘I Dreamed A Dream’, ‘Bring Him Home’ and ‘Do You Hear The People Sing’.
In 19th century France, Jean Valjean is imprisoned for stealing a loaf of bread. Paroled after 19 years he becomes an honest and successful man adopting a daughter but violating his parole in the process. He is relentlessly pursued by Inspector Javert as a consequence, but finally feels fully redeemed when he saves the life of the young student during the Paris uprising.
Originally adapted from Victor Hugo’s timeless novel, Les Misérables (School Edition) has touched the hearts of millions. Within it lies the universal truth “To love another person is to see the face of God” and this message is sure to have a lasting impact.
