The Limestone College Theatre and Gaffney Little Theatre are joining together to present eight performances of the musical, “Les Misérables,” June 18-20 and June 24-27 at 7 p.m. each day, and on June 21 at 3 p.m.

“Les Misérables” is one of the longest running musicals in history and includes such classic songs as “One Day More,” “On My Own” and “I Dreamed a Dream.”

The intimate confines of Limestone College Theatre will give audiences an unprecedented opportunity to experience the musical more closely than ever before.

Based on the classic novel by Victor Hugo, the story begins with Jean Valjean, who after 19 years as a prisoner, is set free by Javert, the officer in charge of the prison workforce.

Valjean promptly breaks parole but later uses money from stolen silver to reinvent himself as a mayor and factory owner. Javert vows to bring Valjean back to prison.

In the meantime, Valjean becomes the guardian of a child named Cosette after her mother’s death, but Javert's relentless pursuit means that peace will be a long time coming.

The cast includes Jade Alford, Dr. Tim Baxter-Ferguson, Jeanna Burch, all of Gaffney; Charles Carr of Richmond, Va.; Ryann Clark of Shelby; Brady Cunningham of Moore; Brad Peterson of Boiling Springs, S.C.; Zach Potter, Lori Lee, James Siarris and Dara Thompson, all of Spartanburg.

Tickets at the door are $15 for adults, $10 for students with a valid ID and for senior citizens 65 and over. Limestone College students, faculty, and staff admitted for free.
