Les Misérables is coming to the Sunset Theatre just in time to help open the 2013 Summer Season. At time of release, 35 cast, crew and musicians are confirmed to be bringing an ‘in concert’ version of the award winning musical to Wells, July 6, 7 p.m. The lower Cariboo region can enjoy a sneak peak of this beloved musical produced and directed by Judy Russell. The full version will be playing at the Prince George Playhouse July 16 – Aug. 3.
“Partnering with Judy Russell to bring Les Misérables to the Sunset Theatre has been a real treat and a new adventure for both companies,” Karen Jeffery, Artistic Director/Producer of the Sunset Theatre said.
“It’s a bit of a crazy idea since the theatre can only hold 100 people, but I think it’s perfect and I’m delighted that Judy has the same sense of adventure as I do! I’m hoping that this is only the beginning of being able to bring the delights of Prince George to the Sunset Theatre.”
Along for the ride and accompanying the ensemble cast is Kevin Zakresky, Music Director of the Prince George Symphony Orchestra; the cast comes from the local talents of Prince George, some of whom will be furthering their adventure by staying overnight in the historic theatre, built in 1934, following the performance.
This is going to be a very exciting year for the Sunset Theatre, there is everything from a tribute featuring the music of Stompin’ Tom Connors to award winning plays, the Youth Summer Theatre Camp to an inaugural Independent Film Festival!
