Photo Flash: Meet the Cast of Copperstar Repertory Co.'s LES MISERABLES
(6/24/2015) - Copperstar Repertory Co. was all but pronounced dead this fall after being completely upside down and financially destitute. After 21 wonderful shows and six successful summers of Musical Theatre Camps, Copperstar made the heart-breaking decision to shut their doors. In an attempt to cover debt, Copperstar has been forced to liquidate their stock of sets and costumes. However, there may be light at the end of the tunnel for Copperstar and those who have been hoping to see a comeback. Copperstar recently met with Higley Center of the Performing Arts and Higley Community Education and the two organizations will be partnering for Summer Musical Theatre Camps and a community-wide production of LES MISERABLES.
