Roxbury High School’s drama program comprised of 87 students with another 25 in the set and technical crew will put on this epic, grand and uplifting tale of passion and redemption during the throes of revolution. 

RHS Drama Advisor Patrick Hachey shared that “The reaction to this particular musical has been overwhelmingly positive. Many people are familiar with the story, especially with the recent film from 2012.” 

According to Music Theatre International (MTI), “Les Misérables is the world’s longest-running musical — a true modern classic based on Victor Hugo's novel and featuring one of the most memorable scores of all time. The multi-award-winning Les Misérables is as groundbreaking today as it was when it first premiered in London in 1985.” 

About Les Misérables School Edition (according to MTI)

In nineteenth century France, Jean Valjean is released from years of unjust imprisonment, but finds nothing in store for him but mistrust and mistreatment. He breaks his parole in hopes of starting a new life, initiating a lifelong struggle for redemption as he is relentlessly pursued by police inspector Javert, who refuses to believe Valjean can change his ways. Finally, during the Paris student uprising of 1832, Javert must confront his ideals after Valjean spares his life and saves that of the student revolutionary who has captured the heart of Valjean's adopted daughter.
