Theatre Tulsa Academy will offer a special two-week run of “Les Miserables: School Edition” featuring its Fall 2018 class of teen performers.
Theatre Tulsa Academy is an interactive theatre training program for youth. The course trains students on the essentials of musical theatre – auditioning, acting, vocal music, dance, and more.
Based on Victor Hugo’s classic novel, Les Misérables covers the epic and uplifting life of Jean Valjean as he rebuilds his life after an unjust prison sentence. The story features love, death, redemption and the survival of the human spirit. This production of “Les Misérables” includes the classic songs “I Dreamed a Dream,” “On My Own,” “Stars,” and “Bring Him Home.”
This official school edition has been abridged to a running time of just over two hours while maintaining the integrity of this musical.
The Theatre Tulsa Academy series of shows features youth-oriented and “junior” versions of popular musicals as a supplement to Theatre Tulsa’s regular season of mainstage shows. Theatre Tulsa Academy produces four additional works per season.
