Wakefield Youth Music Theatre presents one of the most iconic musicals of all time featuring the well loved songs I Dreamed A Dream, Master Of The House and One Day More.
Set in France in 1815, Les Misérables is a story of struggle and redemption during the French revolution. After nineteen years in prison for stealing bread, Jean Valjean is released on parole. By law, he must display a yellow ticket-of-leave, which condemns him as an outcast. He starts a new life as a factory owner with a new name but when one of his workers has an illegitimate daughter who is taken away, he risks everything to find and protect her.
One of the most successful musicals in the world, Les Misérables has already celebrated 30 years in the West End and we're delighted to be bringing it to Wakefield once again.
Brought to you by the professional team behind Cats, Jesus Christ Superstar and Our House. Don't miss your chance to catch the stars of tomorrow in this fantastic show!
Performed entirely by students.
