In 19th century France, Jean Valjean (Jackson Shaffer), released from years of unjust imprisonment, finds only mistrust and mistreatment. He breaks his parole in hopes of starting a new life, initiating a lifelong struggle for redemption. He is relentlessly pursued by police inspector Javert (Sean Huitt), who does not believe Valjean can be reformed. Valjean aids a struggling working-class woman, Fantine (Rosie Barrack), by becoming a guardian to her child, who is poorly treated by her paid caregivers, the Thénardier’s (Tyler Hicks & Claire Doucet). The play progresses to the Paris student uprising of 1832, led by Enjolras (Ryan Singer), where a young Eponine (Mary Rose Vadeboncoeur) sacrifices everything for the love of a student revolutionary, Marius (Brice Cloke). Javert must confront his ideals after Valjean spares his life and saves Marius, who has captured the heart of Valjean’s adopted daughter, Cosette (Morgan Feeney Ingraham).

This production is made possible with the generous support of the Tim Abbott Family & the Michael J. Slater Family.
