The story of the fall and redemption of Jean Valjean, arrested for stealing some bread for his starving family. In prison he's constantly bothered by the hard-nosed lawman Javert. Valjean is paroled, but runs away and becomes the mayor of a small town. He meets a dying woman named Fantine and swears to raise her daughter. Javert catches up to him, but Valjean escapes. The daughter, Cosette, grows up and falls in love with Marius, a student. An ill-fated, student-led revolution makes the mother of all climaxes for this beauty of a production. And the end with the 50 or so Valjeans is pretty impressive! Written by

During Young Cosette's solo "Castle on a Cloud", A loud BANG is heard off-camera. The noise has been attributed to the premature popping of one among many balloons secured at the time in nets against the ceiling. They were intended to be dropped into the concert hall along with confetti at the show's finale. To her credit, Hannah Chick, the child actress playing Cosette managed to stay in character, flinching visibly as a scared little child should, but continuing her solo without missing a beat.

I used to dream that I would meet a prince, but God almighty, have you seen what's happened since? Master of the House? Isn't worth my spit! Comforter, philosopher, and lifelong shit. Cunning little brain, regular Voltaire; thinks he's quite a lover but *there's not much there*. What a cruel trick of nature, landing me with such a louse! God knows how I've lasted living with this bastard in the house.
