Matthews Playhouse presents Les Miserables

Posted By on Tue, Apr 20, 2010 at 1:15 PM


Victor Hugo’s Les Miserables (adapted into a musical by Claude-Michel Schönberg with a libretto by Alain Boubill and lyrics by Herbert Kretzmer) is a classic drama about an ex-convict who struggles to rise in the society of 19th century France (which won’t seem to forgive him of his transgressions). Bringing the story to life is Matthews Playhouse, which will present performances by local high school talents, from April 24-May 2. Scores to be featured in the show include the beloved “On My Own,” as well as others like, “I Dreamed A Dream,” “Bring Him Home,” “A Little Fall of Rain, “Master of the House,” “Do You Hear The People Sing?” and more. Tickets are $9-$10. Performance dates/times are as followed: April 24, 7:30 p.m.; April 25, 2 p.m.; April 29, 7:30 p.m.; April 30, 7:30 p.m.; May 1, 2 p.m.; May 2, 2 p.m. Matthews Community Center, 100 McDowell St., Matthews. 704-846-8343. www.matthewsplayhouse.com.
