Will you join in our crusade, who will be strong and stand with me? Audiences are invited to celebrate the global phenomenon of the French novel turned award-winning musical and motion picture Les Misérables. The revolution returns to the Aurora Theatre stage January 15 – March 1, 2015. Winner of five Suzi Bass Awards, including “Best Musical,” audiences will be immersed into Victor Hugo’s heart wrenching tale of passion, sacrifice and betrayal – a testament to the strength and survival of human spirit. With unforgettable melodies like Bring Him Home, Master of the House, I Dreamed a Dream and On My Own, Aurora’s Mainstage theatre provides an intimate setting for audiences to become engrossed in one of the world’s most popular musicals.

Les Misérables speaks to generations of audiences, through musical genius and stories of vulnerability and passion,” says Aurora Producing Artistic Director Anthony Rodriguez. “After waiting 30 years to do this show, it exceeded all expectations. I’m thrilled for another opportunity to work with these amazing artists on this magical show. To those who did not get a ticket to our sold-out run in 2013, don’t miss this second chance at an extraordinary theatrical experience.”

Under the award-winning direction of Justin Anderson, Les Misérables follows the intertwined lives of several characters reeling from the legacy of the French Revolution, specifically the notorious convict Jean Valjean and his road to redemption. When met with the unexpected duty of raising the orphaned Cosette, Valjean vows to create a life of good will and peace, leaving the horrors of his soiled past behind. Emotionally charged and uplifting, this tale of how far one man will go to protect his loved ones produces a powerful production that resonates throughout the generations.

With award-winning musical direction by Aurora’s Co-Founder and Resident Music Director Ann-Carol Pence and brilliant choreography by Sarah Turner Sechelski, the talented and creative team of Phil Male (set), Alan Yeong (costumes), Mike Post (lights), Scott Sargent (props) and Daniel Terry (sound) help audiences feel like a part of the action.
