“Les Misérables” is a sung-through pop opera running at the Santa Clarita Performing Arts Center at College of the Canyons through out the months of July and August. It is expected to feature 80 cast members and a live orchestra in this widely acclaimed musical production.
Based on French playwright’s Victor Hugo’s classic novel, “Les Misérables” is a story about the struggle and triumph of the human spirit. The score of the Canyon Theatre Guild and Santa Clarita Regional Theater’s live theater rendition of “Les Misérables” features favorites such as “I Dreamed A Dream” and “On My Own” and all the original songs from the musical production of “Les Misérables.”
“It’s truly a stunning production, both visually and vocally. The voices are just magnificent and features a huge, live orchestra that’s absolutely flawless,” said Patti Finley, co-director of CTG/SCRT’s “Les Misérables” play and assistant director of the Canyon Theatre Guild.
“Whether you’re a ‘Les Misérables’ fan or whether you’ve never seen the play, it’s a piece of theater you don’t want to miss,” according to her statement.
Over a thousand people were in attendance at both the first two performances on July 20 and 21, according to Finley.
Upcoming performances include Saturday evenings at 8 p.m. on July 27, August 3, 10 and on Sundays at 2 p.m. on July 28, August 4, 11.
Tickets range from $12 to $29 depending on seat location and are available for purchase at the box office.
