Join the Youth En­ter­tain­ment Stage (YES) Com­pany in their 25th year for the pro­duc­tion of Les Mi- sérables, win­ner of over 100 in­ter­na­tional awards and seen by over 65 mil­lion peo­ple world­wide. Les Misérables is an epic and up­lift­ing story about the sur­vival of the hu­man spirit and fea­tures one of the most mem­o­rable scores of all time. In 19th 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 life-long 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. The Les Misérables School Edi­tion packs an emo­tional wal­lop.
