Grand and uplifting, Les Misérables is a powerful affirmation of the human spirit and one of the most popular musicals of all time. Woodminster Amphitheater hosts an outdoor production of this tale of passion and revolution in 19th-century France, which won seven Tony Awards on Broadway and was made into an Oscar-nominated film. Cozy up under a blanket and watch ex-convict Jean Valjean's struggle for redemption and the young, innocent love of his adopted daughter Cosette and the student Marius are set against the tumultuous backdrop of the French Revolution. It's a celebration of the human struggle for love, justice and happiness in the face of hardship, carried forward on a gorgeous score, including the beloved songs "I Dreamed a Dream," "On My Own," "One day More," "Do You Hear the People Sing?" and more.

Spanish author Miguel de Cervantes was sold into slavery, excommunicated from the Church, imprisoned in debtors’ jail, and died poor. Yet his alter ego Don Quixote de la Mancha sees only the best in everyone and pursues the loftiest ideals, “no matter how hopeless, no matter how far.” Initially ridiculed as an idealistic fool, Quixote eventually transforms those around him, helping them see the world “not as it is, but as it ought to be.” The show’s signature song “The Impossible Dream”, an anthem for anyone on a quest of their own, makes this story as powerful today as it was in Cervantes’ time.
