The Ballard Playmakers are taking on the epic show Les Misérables and continues on March 23, 24, 25 at 7:30 with an additional matinee performance on Sunday, March 26th at 2:00pm.
This Tony Award-winning musical based on Victor Hugo's novel of the same name is set in 19th century France and the story line includes the short 1832 uprising in Paris.
The show engages more than 100 students as actors, pit orchestra musicians, and technical crew. The beautifully rich score extends without a break (except intermission) from beginning to end in the two hour show. The musical numbers are alternately stirring, poignant, comic, tragic, and uplifting. Hugo's commentary on the struggles of the working class and the shortcomings of the social order carries an overriding theme that kindness and mercy are the greatest gifts a person can give.
