Gulfshore Playhouse in Naples will present a student production of the megahit musical Les Misérables August 1-10. Based on Victor Hugo’s 1862 novel of the same name, Les Misérables takes place in nineteenth-century France and revolves around Jean Valjean, a peasant who serves 19 years in prison for stealing a loaf of bread to feed his sister’s starving children—and trying to escape white incarcerated. As an ex-convict, he is shunned from society, eventually taking on a new identity to break free from his former life and become an honest man. But doing so causes him to violate his parole and go on the run from the vindictive policeman Javert. This plot acts as an entrée to a gorgeous world of characters and music, including such haunting hits as “I Dreamed a Dream” and “One Day More.” Check out the event webpage for additional information about showtimes.
