Chaparral High School has announced its next theater production, “Les Misérables,” Feb. 27-March 1 at the school’s Main Stage Auditorium.

“Les Misérables,” the smash-hit musical masterpiece recently turned film, tells Victor Hugo’s uncompromising tale of the struggle between justice and mercy in the harsh world of early 19th century France.

Bursting with soaring melodies, and universally resonating themes, “Les Misérables” brings a timeless lesson to a new generation. The most popular musical ever written, “Les Misérables” cuts to the core of our humanity with its portrayal of selfless love, according to a press release.

“Les Misérables” has won over 100 international awards and has been seen by over 65 million people worldwide.

Chaparral Theater Company continues with another large-scale musical, after performing “Singin’ in the Rain,” last year, to sell-out crowds.

The performances will be 7 p.m. Feb. 27-March 1, at Chaparral High School’s Main Stage Auditorium, 6935 E. Gold Dust Ave. Tickets are $12 full price, $10 with student activity card or $6 for middle school students.

Tickets can be purchased night of the show at the box office, or pre-purchased during school hours at the library.

Content advisory: Parents advised to use discretion in bringing children due to some weighty themes and brief language. There will also be the use of strobe lights, loud sound effects, and fog, the press release stated.
