Ararat Musical Comedy Society is very excited to be staging Les Misérables for the first time in our 46 year history. Starting with “Oklahoma” in 1974, AMCS has done a plethora of old and new Musicals since, but it is Les Misérables that is THE production we knew was missing from our list of accomplishments.

This international smash-hit may be the most popular musical in the world. In 19th century France, Jean Valjean is released from 19 years of unjust imprisonment, but finds nothing in store for him but mistrust and mistreatment. He breaks his parole in hopes of starting a new life, initiating a life-long struggle for redemption as he is relentlessly pursued by police inspector Javert, who refuses to believe Valjean can change his ways. Finally, during the Paris student uprising of 1832, Javert must confront his ideals after Valjean spares his life and saves that of the student revolutionary who has captured the heart of Valjean’s adopted daughter. His world-view shattered, Javert commits suicide, and Valjean at last attains the peace he has sought for so long.
Epic, grand and uplifting, LES MISRABLES packs an emotional wallop that has thrilled audiences all over the world. The sung-through pop opera is ideal for a cast of exceptional singers and overflows with melodies that are already standards. A spectacle on Broadway and in London, LES MISRABLES is equally effective with a minimal set; it is its powerful affirmation of the human spirit that has made LES MISRABLES a popular masterpiece.
