Would you like to see the second-longest running Broadway show in history right here in Rockford? Rockford High School is presenting the smash hit musical, “Les Miserables,” for two weekends on March 18, 19, 20 and 25, 26, and 27 at 7 p.m. in the Rockford Fine Arts Auditorium.
This extremely popular masterpiece of musical theater is based on the novel by Victor Hugo. The story follows Jean Valjean’s life journey and ultimate transformation from a convict in 1815 France to a man of great humanity and compassion.
The talented cast, under the direction of RHS choir director Dave Duiven, along with the crew and parents, are working feverishly to arrive at a production that will more than do justice to the high caliber of the classic story and characters of Victor Hugo, and the music of Alain Boublil and Claude-Michel Schonberg. This will undoubtedly be one of the best musicals in Rockford’s history.
Ticket sales will begin February 15, and will be available at the RHS box office weekdays from 10 a.m. to 12:30, or by calling the box office at (616) 863-6031, ext. 7087. All seats for all shows are reserved, and are an exceptional value at only $10. You will not want to miss this extraordinary show, so mark your calendars now.
