The Woodland Opera House will present Cameron Mackintosh’s legendary production of Boublil and Schonberg’s classic musical “Les Misérables” at 7:30 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays and 2 p.m. Sundays, Sept. 13 through Oct. 6. The show is underwritten by the Woodland Opera House Guild.

Originally adapted from Victor Hugo’s timeless novel, “Les Misérables” is the epic story that recounts the struggle against adversity in 19th century France. Jean Valjean is released from 19 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 lifelong struggle for redemption as he is relentlessly pursued by Police Inspector Javert, who refuses to believe Valjean can change his ways.

Only years later, after Valjean proves his mettle during a bloody student uprising and saves the life of a young man hopelessly in love with Valjean‘s adopted daughter, does the ex-convict finally feel fully redeemed. It is a moving musical theater experience, with well-known songs such as “I Dreamed a Dream,” “Master of the House,” “Bring Him Home” and “Castle on a Cloud.”

The cast includes Tevye Ditter as Jean Valjean, J. Sing as Javert, Danielle DeBow as Fantine, Rodger McDonald as Bishop of Digne, Dan Sattel as Thenardier, Christine Deamer as Mdme. Thenardier, Alyssa Ray as Cosette, Makenna Harding-Davis as little Cosette, Dalton McNeely as Marius, Hilary Wells as Eponine, Marley Michel as little Eponine, Matt Taloff as Enjolras and Maxwell Freedman as Gavroche.

Members of the ensemble are Spencer Alexander, Vanessa Archuleta, Edward Bianchi, Colin Coate, Tomas Eredia, Kendra Evans, Horacio Gonzalez, Christina Gross, Diane Haas, Erica Levich, Nick Lunetta, Lisa Montanaro, Seth Rogers and Amanda Walker.

The show is directed by Amy Shuman with music direction by James C. Glica-Hernandez. Costumes are designed by Denise Miles, with set design by John Bowles and lighting design by Jeff Kean.

Reserved tickets are $25 for adults, $23 for seniors age 62 and older and $12 for children 17 and under. Balcony tickets are $15 for adults and $7 for children. The show is recommended for ages 13 and above.

Tickets are available online at www.woodlandoperahouse.org and by calling the box office at 530-666-9617.
