Les Misérables School Edition
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.
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.
As Scotch College launches itself into celebration mode for its centenary year, there is no better choice than one of the greatest musicals of all time, based on the 1862 novel by Victor Hugo. Directing the School Edition of Les Misérables is Linda Williams, backed by Choreographic Director Nina Richards and Musical Director Antony Hubmayer.
Putting on a production of this scale is no mean feat, with a cast of 70 students from Years 7-12 including a complete double cast of principal roles. Staying true to the original version, the School Edition of Les Misérables trims about half an hour off the run time with some numbers slightly shortened, but still features all the favourites including One Day More, I Dreamed A Dream, Castle on a Cloud and Master of the House, stunningly performed by a 17 piece live orchestra.
