Students from South Fork High School in Stuart are studying the history of France in a unique way with a production of Les Misérables School Edition, an adaptation of the Tony Award-winning musical phenomenon which is performed by students only. The students present the musical February 26-29 at 7:30 pm with a matinee on February 29th at 2:00 pm.
This epic story of Les Misérables recounts the struggle against adversity in 19th century France. Imprisoned for stealing a loaf of bread, petty thief Jean Valjean is released from his 19-year term and not only becomes and honest man, but the mayor of a prosperous town and a loving adoptive father – violating his parole in the process. The relentless Inspector Javert, who makes a decent life for Valjean impossible, consequently pursues him. 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.
Matinee at 2pm on Saturday, February 29
