Les Miserables At GLTG
A talented group of regional youth, directed by Karen O'Baker Porter, brings the musical "Les Miserables, School Edition" to Chardon for the Geauga Lyric Theater Guild's Skip Kelley Youth Production. Referred to as "Les Misï" by those in the know, the show is the second longest running musical in the world.
Set in France during social revolutions, the story follows a man imprisoned for stealing a loaf of bread, his adopted daughter and her unfortunate mother, street urchins and noble university students. The music will make theatergoers want to laugh, cry, and brandish a flag.
"Les Miserables, School Edition," book by Alain Boublil, music by Claude-Michel Schonberg, lyrics by Herbert Kretzmer and Alain Boublil and based on the novel by Victor Hugo, is sponsored by Lake Health.
The show runs weekends through Feb. 10. Friday and Saturday performances are at 8 p.m.; Sunday performances are at 2 p.m. All tickets are $12.
The historic Geauga Theater is located at 101 Water St. in Chardon. For more information or to purchase tickets, visit www.geaugatheater.org or call the box office at 440?286?2255.
