Tickets now available for Les Misérables
Five performances November 16-19
The Theatre Company is set to perform Les Misérables, a demanding, but much-loved musical November 16-19 in the L.J. Williams Theater in Visalia. The musical is an epic tale of struggle and redemption set in a revolutionary period of early 19th-century France. The story spans several decades as it follows Jean Valjean, a parolee who seeks to redeem himself from past crimes, and Javert, who relentlessly tracks him. Les Misérables was first performed by the Theatre Company in 2008.
What makes this production special for director Nicole Zweifel and the Theatre Company staff is that many of the students in leading roles are seniors. Among the seniors is Ms. Zweifel’s son, Tristan Beck, who plays Javert, the police inspector. “It’s been a real privilege to work with these amazing young people as we have watched them grow into talented young performers,” she said.
Madam and Monsieur Thenardier provide Les Misérables some much needed comic relief. Haley Nelson, who plays the greedy and crooked Madam Thenardier with humorous effect, has been involved in Theatre Company productions since she was in first grade. “For 12 years, I’ve been participating in Theatre Company productions – usually two or three each year,” she said proudly. Haley is a senior at Redwood High School.
The Theatre Company will offer four evening shows November 16-19 at 7:00 p.m. in the L.J. Williams Theater at 1001 W. Main St. in Visalia. A 2:00 p.m. matinee show on Saturday, November 19 will also be offered. Tickets, which will be available at TCOE’s 6200 S. Mooney Blvd. and 7000 Doe Ave., Suite A locations, are $12 per person for general admission seating and $20 per person for reserved seating.
