McKinney Youth Theatre Presents Les Miserables School Edition

TSB Community Contributor

McKinney Youth Theatre proudly presents Les Miserables School Edition, to be held May 2-12. This international smash-hit may be the most popular musical in the world. Epic, grand and uplifting, Les Miserables is an emotional masterpiece that has thrilled audiences all over the world. Les Miserables School Edition has been abridged to a running time of just over two hours, while carefully maintaining the integrity of one the greatest musicals ever written. Performed by a cast of McKinney Youth Theatre’s exceptional singers who are students 19 and under, Les Miserables School Edition, Directed by Danny Miranda, is an entirely sung overflowing with melodies that are already standards.

This epic story recounts the struggle against adversity in 19th century France. Imprisoned for stealing a loaf of bread, petty thief Jean Valjean is released from his 19-year term and not only becomes and honest man, but the mayor of a prosperous town and a loving adoptive father — violating his parole in the process. The relentless Inspector Javert, who makes a decent life for Valjean impossible, consequently pursues him. Only years later, after Valjean proves his character during a bloody student uprising, and saves the life of a young man hopelessly in love with Valjean’s adopted daughter, does the ex-convict finally feel fully redeemed.

Originally adapted from Victor Hugo’s timeless novel, Les Miserables School Edition introduces a new generation to the grand and inspirational story that has touched the hearts of millions. For, within Les Miserables 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. Don’t miss McKinney Youth Theatre’s rendition of this masterpiece!
