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.

This witty, Tony Award-winning musical follows six bright young misfits thrust suddenly into the competitive spotlight. Overcoming their fears, they learn that winning isn’t everything, losing doesn’t make you a loser, and it’s all about the journey. As The New York Times put it, “Can you spell ‘irresistable’? Drat, I mean, ‘irresistible’?”
