MCHS Presents Les Misérables This Spring
Mt. Carmel High School’s Theater at the Mount is proud to present Les Misérables for its Spring 2016 season. Les Misérables tells author Victor Hugo’s uncompromising tale of the struggle between justice and mercy in early 19th century France. The story begins as Jean Valjean is finally released from a nineteen year prison term for stealing a loaf of bread. Disgusted with the world, light touches him again when he finds love and hospitality in an unexpected place. This simple yet powerful gift helps him to overcome his dark past and inspires him to run away to start a new life as a man of honor and integrity. Throughout the show, Valjean is pursued by the merciless Inspector Javert, who will stop at nothing to see Valjean re-imprisoned, believing him incapable of changing his criminal nature. Eventually, both come to terms with the idea that salvation is possible through love and faith.
Featuring the songs “I Dreamed a Dream,” “Do You Hear the People Sing,” “One Day More,” and “On My Own,” Les Misérables has won over 100 international awards and has been seen by over 65 million people worldwide.
