California Youth Conservatory Theatre presents Les Miserables
Co-Directed by Broadway’s Thomas O’Leary
June 6th - 22, 2013
Les Miserables is regarded as the world’s most beloved musical. Based on Victor Hugo’s timeless novel, this epic musical stirs the heart and invigorates the soul with its moving storyline and unforgettable score. The story is set in 19th Century France where Jean Valjean, released on parole after 19 years on the chain gang, breaks parole and tries to begin his life anew while eluding the relentless pursuit of the obsessed Inspector Javert. His journey builds into a stunning plot of love versus hate, and forgiveness versus condemnation. This phenomenal musical is presented by CYC Theatre, the bold and innovative group that brought you RENT at the Lyceum last Christmas. This production features a live, 30-piece orchestra and some of the finest talent San Diego has to offer.
Co-Directed by Broadway’s Thomas O’Leary, veteran of the 1st National Tour of Les Miz, and “The Phantom” from The Phantom of the Opera for over 1000 performances.
ABOUT THE PRESENTER:
Hailed by writers and critics alike, the award-winning California Youth Conservatory Theatre is an innovative new company formed to offer real-world, professional training to aspiring young performers. Under the direction of veteran Actor/Director Shaun T. Evans, the company is the only such young-performer's training theatre to use professional actors as teaching artists and mentors for its students—and the only youth group to regularly employ Equity actors. CYC Theatre has also made theatre history with several ‘first-ever’ productions of bold titles by a youth theatre group like RENT, Ragtime and A Few Good Men. The quality of the training is superb, as is the quality of their theatrical productions. NOTE: This is an adult production of the full-score, unedited Les Miserables—not the School Edition script.
