“This School Edition of Les Mis was the most widely produced musical in 2010-2011, by schools and youth theatre groups in the US. It is a full length production, edited by the original producer to be more assessable for younger voices. This is considered an operetta, and requires a large cast! Les Mis will be accompanied by a full orchestra.”
Les Miserables Summer Musical: School Edition
“Leon Choral Department and Leon Friends of Music, Inc. are pleased to announce the 2012 summer musical — Les Miserables: School Edition, a musical by Alain Boublil and Claude-Michel Schonberg; based on the novel by Victor Hugo.
Originally produced in London in 1985, and then brought to the New York stage, Les Miserables has been produced all over the world and is the second longest running show on Broadway (The Fantastiks is the longest).
It made such an impact on audiences that the original producer, Cameron Mackintosh, adapted the show to be suitable for high school students. The running time is still over two hours, but some of the keys have been changed to be accessible by high school singers.”
