Synopsis ACT ONE: After 19 years on the chain gang, Jean Valjean finds that the ticket-of-leave he must display condemns him to be an outcast. Only the Bishop of Digne treats him kindly, but an embittered Valjean repays him by stealing some silver. Valjean is caught and is astonished when the Bishop lies to the police to save him. Valjean decides to start his life anew. Eight years later, Valjean, having broken his parole and changed his name, has become a factory owner and Mayor. One of his workers, Fantine, has a secret illegitimate child. When the other women discover this, they demand her dismissal. Desperate for money to pay for medicines for her daughter, Fantine sells her locket, her hair, and finally herself. Utterly degraded, she gets into a fight with a prospective customer and is about to be taken to prison by Javert when ‘The Mayor’ arrives and demands she be taken to hospital instead. The Mayor then rescues a man pinned beneath a cart. Javert is reminded of the abnormal strength of convict 24601 Jean Valjean, who, he says, has just been recaptured. Valjean, unable to see an innocent man go to prison, confesses that he is prisoner 24601. At the hospital, Valjean promises the dying Fantine to find and look after her daughter Cosette. Javert arrives to arrest him, but Valjean escapes. Cosette has been lodged with the Thénardiers, who abuse her while indulging their own daughter, Éponine. Valjean pays the Thénardiers to let him take Cosette away to Paris. Nine years later, there is unrest in the city because of the likely demise of the popular leader General Lamarque. A street-gang led by Thénardier and his wife sets upon Jean Valjean and Cosette. They are rescued by Javert, who does not recognise Valjean. Éponine, who is secretly in love with the student Marius, reluctantly agrees to help him find Cosette, with whom he has fallen in love. News of General Lamarque’s death circulates in the city and a group of politicallyminded students stream out into the streets to whip up support for a revolution. Éponine brings Marius to Cosette and then prevents an attempt by her father’s gang to rob Valjean’s house. Convinced it was Javert outside, Valjean tells Cosette they must prepare to flee. ACT TWO: The students prepare to build the barricade. Marius, noticing that Éponine has joined the insurrection, sends her away with a letter to Cosette, which is intercepted by Valjean. The barricade is built and the revolutionaries defy an army warning to give up or die. Javert is exposed as a police spy. In trying to return to the barricade, Éponine is killed. Valjean arrives at the barricade in search of Marius. He is given the chance to kill Javert but instead lets him go. The students settle down for the night and Valjean prays to God to save Marius. The next day, the rebels are all killed. Valjean escapes into the sewers with the unconscious Marius. After meeting Thénardier, who is robbing the corpses of the rebels, he comes across Javert once more. He pleads for time to deliver the young man to hospital. Javert lets Valjean go and, his unbending principles of justice having been shattered by Valjean’s own mercy, kills himself. Unaware of the identity of his rescuer, Marius recovers in Cosette’s care. Valjean confesses the truth of his past to Marius and insists he must go away. At Marius and Cosette’s wedding, the Thénardiers try to blackmail Marius. Thénardier says Cosette’s ‘father’ is a murderer and as proof produces a ring which he stole from a corpse the night the barricade fell. Recognizing his own ring Marius’ realizes Valjean rescued him. He and Cosette go to Valjean, where Cosette learns of her own history before Valjean dies. — courtesy LesMis.com

How many actors does it take to change a light bulb? None. As long as there is a follow spot on them, who needs light bulbs?

A

ctually, theatre spaces consume a fair amount of energy to light, heat and cool the lobbies, backstage, & auditoria areas. The School of Music, Theatre & Dance (University Productions) is partnering with Planet Blue to reduce the energy costs of our performance halls. Planet Blue’s electrical engineering expertise has enabled us to save energy by utilizing improved LED lighting technology while at the same time maintaining the beautiful atmosphere of our theatres. Their fine tuning of our heating and cooling systems has resulted in both energy savings and increased audience comfort. Key activities include: Air handling unit (AHU) upgrades; scene shop lighting upgrades; upgrades to lighting in Power Center lobby, Mendelssohn auditorium & onstage striplights; weather stripping upgrades; HVAC fan scheduling; steam trap testing & replacement; and restroom water conservation. Our Sustainability Report Card for Fiscal 2013: Saved $52,000 per year in energy costs at Power Center, Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre, Hill Auditorium, & Walgreen Drama Center
