Photo Flash: Promo Photos for Hale's LES MISERABLES, Begin. 2/14
Hale Centre Theatre (HCT), Utah's premiere family theatre, is one of the first community theatres in the country to present the Broadway classic Les Miserables, which runs Feb. 14 through April 19. The theatre's center stage will provide a uniquely intimate telling of the poignant story. Check out just-released promotional photos below!
Les Miserables is the story of Jean Valjean, a French peasant in 19th-century France, and his quest for redemption following 19 years in jail for stealing a loaf of bread. Valjean breaks parole and starts his life anew, becomes a pillar of society and adopts Cosette, the daughter of a former employee. As the French Revolution foments, Cosette falls in love with a passionate revolutionary while police inspector Javert, who has been on the hunt for Valjean over several years, begins to close in on Valjean's secret past.
