Description:

To Love Another Person is to See the Face of God

Les Misérables is the world’s longest running musical — a true modern classic based on Victor Hugo's novel and featuring one of the most memorable scores of all time. The multi-award-winning Les Misérables is as groundbreaking today as it was when it first premiered in London in 1985. 
In nineteenth century France, Jean Valjean is released from years of unjust imprisonment, but finds nothing in store for him but mistrust and mistreatment. He breaks his parole in hopes of starting a new life, initiating a lifelong struggle for redemption as he is relentlessly pursued by police inspector Javert, who refuses to believe Valjean can change his ways. Finally, during the Paris student uprising of 1832, Javert must confront his ideals after Valjean spares his life and saves that of the student revolutionary who has captured the heart of Valjean's adopted daughter.
Epic, grand and uplifting, Les Misérables School Edition packs an emotional wallop that has thrilled audiences all over the world. 

**Les Miserables is full of many Christian Themes including redemption, salvation, love and grace. However, it also contains content that some may find unsuitable for children under 13.

Characters:

Jean Valjean

Valjean is the hero of the show. He is stronger than other men, and should carry himself confidently onstage. He should come across as mature and paternal. Vocal Range: G#2-A4

Javert

Javert is the inspector who serves as an antagonist to Valjean. Javert is unswerving in his belief that men cannot change for the better. He is a dedicated policeman with a profoundly strong sense of duty. Unlike, Valjean, Javert's attitudes are rigid and unmovable. He is stern, forbidding, and lacking in compassion. Vocal Range: F2-F#4

Fantine

Fantine is a beautiful, young girl who is left to fend for herself and her daughter, Cosette. She is rejected by society and forced through circumstances to sell herself. She is a brave woman defeated by life and clings to her dignity and is sustained by her love for her daughter. Vocal Range: F3-Eb5

Madame Thenardier

Madame Thenardier and Thenardier con the world as partners in crime. She is romantic, greedy, manipulative, evil and larger than life. She is mean and nasty to Little Cosette and able to improvise in nearly any situation. Vocal Range: G#3-D5

Thenardier

Thenardier delights in cheating, robbing, defrauding, and blackmailing. He relishes every aspect of his schemes with glee. He should also possess a wicked sense of humor. Vocal Range: C2-G4

Cosette

Fantine's strong-willed, loving daughter. She is an intelligent, inquiring, personable girl; she is not in any sens a sappy, romantic heroine. Once she is adopted by Valjean, Cosette lives a comfortable, if secluded, life. She falls instantly in love with Marius, changing her world and her priorities. Vocal Range: Bb3-C6

Young Cosette

Fantine's daughter and Thenardiers' ward. She has been forced into child labor.

Marius

Marius is impulsive, passionate, willful, and headstrong. His moods change according to his circumstances. He is sweet and tender but also capable of great courage and compassion. Vocal Range: A2-Ab4

Eponine

Eponine is the Thenardiers' daugher. Living hand to mouth, she survives by helping her father in his life of crime. She is a young girl who is streetwise and tough but also sensitive and lonely. She is hopelessly in love with Marius, knowing he will never love her back. Vocal Range: F3-E5

Young Eponine

Enjolras

Enjolras is the student leader of the revolution. He is handsome, brave, and daring, although youthful. He combines his revolutionary ideals with strong, charismatic leadership. Vocal Range: A2-G4

Gavroche

Bishop of Digne

The Bishop is a good man who saves Valjean's soul through showing compassion. The Bishop of Digne's kindness carefully establishes the premise of the show by literally buying Valjean's soul for God. Vocal Range: A2-E4

Grantaire

Grantaire is the opposite of Enjolras. He believes in nothing. Although he admires Enjolras, he loves to mock him. Witty and drunken, Grantaire is happy being with the group, and they put up with him because of his good humor. He also keeps a watchful eye on Gavroche, the mascot of the group, and is the most heartbroken when Gavroche is killed. He is so devastated by Gavroche’s death that Grantaire abandons his cynicism and rushes to die on the barricade.
