Les Miserables

16-26 August

To celebrate 40 years of producing musical theatre for Newcastle audiences, Metropolitan Players will bring the classic Les Miserables to the Civic Theatre Newcastle in 2017. This is the longest running musical on the West End (running continuously since October 1985) and the second longest running musical in the world and a firm favourite with audiences everywhere.

Based on the Victor Hugo novel, set in early 19th century France, it is the story of Jean Valjean, a French peasant, and his quest for redemption after serving nineteen years in jail for having stolen a loaf of bread for his sister’s starving child.

Following on from our hugely successful productions of “The Phantom of the Opera”, “Hairspray” “Mary Poppins” and “Wicked”, prepare to be transported by the spectacle and drama of Les Miserables when Metropolitan Players bring this production to life for Newcastle audiences.

A musical by Alain Boubil and Claude-Michel Schonberg. Based on a novel by Victor Hugo. Music by Claude-Michel Schonberg. Lyrics by Herbert Kretzmer
