IT ‘Les Misérables’ tickets available

“Les Misérables,” the world’s longest-running musical, seen by over 60 million people in 42 countries and 21 languages around the globe is coming to Placerville’s Imagination Theater.

In what is likely to be an unprecedented worldwide celebration of musical theater in 2013 due to the release of “Les Misérables” for community theater productions, Imagination Theater, now in its 13th year of productions, has been approved by the show’s owners, Music Theater International in New York City, to perform the show in November and December 2013.

Tickets are now available for the show online and through the theater box office.

Based upon the novel by Victor Hugo, Cameron Mackintosh’s now legendary classic musical story sweeps its audience through an epic tale of passion and destruction in 19th century France. “Les Misérables” tells a story of broken dreams and unrequited love, passion, sacrifice and redemption — having become a timeless testament to the survival of the human spirit.

Ex-convict Jean Valjean is hunted for decades by the ruthless policeman Javert after he breaks parole. When Valjean agrees to care for factory worker Fantine’s young daughter, Cosette, their lives change forever.

The score features classic songs including, “I Dreamed a Dream,” “On My Own,” “Stars,” “Bring Him Home,” “Do You Hear the People Sing?,” “One Day More,” “Empty Chairs at Empty Tables,” “Master Of The House” and others.

Imagination Theater producer and co-owner, Lanny Langston plans for the local production to mimic the grand scale of the show itself. Placerville’s “Les Misérables” production will include a live orchestra, an accompanying choral group, a cast of actors, singers, and dancers, a massive set, and a very experienced team of creative artists and designers.

Dr. Jeff Nelson of Placerville is assembling an orchestra of local musicians. Award-winning lighting designer, David Patrick of Placerville, will be lighting the production. Dr. Dale Wallerstein of Placerville will be the vocal director.

Placerville’s “Les Misérables” will be directed local architect Peter Wolfe, who will also provide the scenic design for the production.

Tickets are now available for the show and can be purchased online at itlesmis.bpt.me. Additional information about “Les Misérables” is available at the Imagination Theater box office, 530-642-0404 or at imagination-theater.org.

Imagination Theater is located on the El Dorado County Fairgrounds, 100 Placerville Drive in Placerville.
