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.

The Actors Theatre maintains a very high standard for production by a local group. Both Stella and Blanch women characters give exceptionally strong performances. What is especially nice about any show this group produces is the intimate connection between the performers and the audience. In part this is due to the nature of a small venue and in part it is due to the warm , friendly treatment patrons receive from all the staff. It is common to talk to the directors, actors and sometimes writers before the show,during intermission and at the conclusion.
This is a low budget production with some outstanding performers.
