CHS Presents Les Misérables

Set in 19th-century France, Les Misérables tells Victor Hugo's story of the failed but noble Paris uprising of 1832. We start with a prisoner named Jean Valjean (Aiden Grenier), who was sentenced to 19 years for stealing bread to save his family. Upon his parole, the stern but dutiful Inspector Javert (Logan Rogers) warns him to be mindful of the law. Still, when Valjean cannot find work as a parolee, he steals silver from the local Bishop of Digne (Elijah Hoover). Valjean is brought to justice, but in a twist of fate, the bishop tells the inspector that he gave him the silver and he may be released. 

Valjean turns his life around, eventually becoming a factory owner and mayor of a nearby town. One of his factory workers, Fantine (Sarah McKillip, Kaelyn Rudd), is scorned for supporting an illegitimate child (Lilly Crayton, Kyleigh Johnson) under the care of the treacherous innkeepers, the Thénardiers (Lillian Baker & Parker Schmidt). Fantine is fired from the factory, and Valjean takes pity on her and vows to help raise her daughter, Cosette (Allison Bartoszek, Madalyn Douglas).

Valjean and Cosette relocate to avoid discovery from Javert. Cosette falls in love with a young revolutionary, Marius (William MacAlpine), who is also pursued by Thénardier's daughter, Eponine (Anna Chatwin). Joining Marius is Enjolras (Julian Martinez, Manu Tipa), who leads the young men and women in fighting for the revolution, including the young and scrappy Gavroche (Tristan LaSala, Ryan Uryniak)
