Les Miserables

Victor Harbor High School proudly supports our local Theatre Company, South Coast Choral & Arts Society and is pleased to share their upcoming performance of Les Miserables.

Over the years many VHHS students and staff have been involved in local productions and several students have undertaken further tertiary studies in The Arts, either in the performing arts or music. A total of 3 VHHS staff and 5 VHHS students are involved in Les Mis.

Les Misérables tells the story of Jean Valjean, a former convict who spends a lifetime seeking redemption. Set against the backdrop of 19th-century France and the aftermath of the French Revolution, this timeless story of intertwined destinies reveals the power of compassion and the quiet evil of indifference to human suffering. As Valjean’s quest for a new life carries him into Paris and to the barricades of the Student Revolution, he is hunted by Inspector Javert and the ghosts of his past. Amidst a battle for the soul of Paris, he discovers the true meaning of love and salvation. Performed in over 40 countries and 22 languages, and with a lush, swelling score that features such famed songs as “I Dreamed a Dream,” “On My Own,” and “Bring Him Home,” Les Mis brings Victor Hugo’s revolutionary novel blazingly to life.
