Grand and uplifting, Les Misérables is a powerful affirmation of the human spirit and one of the most popular musicals of all time. La Mirada Theatre for the Performing Arts presents a brand-new 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. 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," "Do You Hear the People Sing?" and more.

A perfect evening out! Picnic in the park, entertained with a funny skit on the green, then by a great play. Looks like every seat in this outdoor facility would have been fine, our seat were great, dead center half way up! Thanks for bringing this opportunity to our attention, this was our first Shakespeare play and it was so entertaining. My husband and I could follow it and there were great death scenes at the end! Intermission was held conveniently during the fireworks display not far away at Disneyland, we could even walk out and watch for a moment!
Quotes & Highlights
- "Bo Foxworth gives a great performance, both classically poised and wickedly intuitive." --Los Angeles Times
- "Bo Foxworth's dramatic skills are so impressive he is completely convincing. His performance of our tragic conflicted hero conveys equal measures of regal majesty, sense of duty, and promise for revenge, with deep human suffering, despair, and feigned madness." --Backstage West
<p>Find yourself “Under the Stars” this summer at the beautiful 550-seat open-air Festival Amphitheatre as Shakespeare Orange County presents one of the Bard’s greatest tragedies, HAMLET, PRINCE OF DENMARK, directed by Thomas F. Bradac. Be prepared to be transported to the world of Elsinore and the classic characters that we all know so well—Hamlet, Ophelia, Claudius, Gertrude, and Polonius and others. Something is rotten in Denmark. Murder, corruption, and betrayal lurk in the shadows, resulting in the feigned insanity of a noble prince, the suicide of his beloved, and the fall of a great house. You’ll anxiously follow each twist and turn in a tale filled with madness that as a classic is extremely relevant to today’s world.</p> <p>This season’s production features an award winning cast. Bo Foxworth returns to the Festival Amphitheatre in the title role after appearing as Angelo in last season’s production of Measure for Measure, and as McDuff in SOC’s 2003 production of MacBeth. Foxworth is an accomplished stage actor with film and television credits that include Law and Order, 21 Jump Street, Skin Deep, and Summer Dreams, the Story of the Beach Boys. Hamlet also features veteran actor and director Carl Reggiardo as Claudius, eleven-year Alabama Shakespeare Festival alum Evelyn Carol Case as Gertrude, and the award-winning Michael Nehring as Polonius. </p> Bring a picnic, take in the authentic Elizabethan pre-show "on the green," and prepare yourself for an evening of award-winning theatre. Plenty of free parking is availabl. Picnic areas and light refreshments are available.
