Les Misérables - Oct 18, 19, and 20

Franklin Performing Arts Company’s 23rd season opens with the Broadway and worldwide phenomenon, Les Misérables! The record-breaking musical’s enduring appeal may be attributed to its epic storyline, memorable characters and Tony Award-winning score, which includes such beloved songs as “Bring Him Home,” “I Dreamed a Dream,” “On My Own” and “One Day More.” Set against a backdrop of the 1832 Paris uprising and reflecting a nation in the grip of a revolution, the acclaimed Les Misérables is a powerful story of redemption and a moving tribute to the passion and resiliency of the human spirit. FPAC’s production features a professional live orchestra and a large ensemble cast of 85 talented area performers.
