Aug. 29--With production rights just now available for repertory companies, Sierra Repertory Theatre seized upon them and will kick off its 2014 season with "Les Miserables."
The international hit musical based on the Victor Hugo novel about ex-convict Jean Valjean, who is relentlessly pursued by policeman Javert in 19th century France, opens March 1.
The musical launches an eight-production season, Sierra Rep's 35th, which is "one of the most exciting and ambitious seasons in our entire history," artistic director Scott Viets said.
"Les Mis" is followed by shows including the comedy "A Second Helping: The Church Basement Ladies Sequel"; the country and western musical "Pump Boys and Dinettes"; and for the holidays, the inspirational musical "A Sanders Family Christmas."
Season tickets go on sale Sunday and may be purchased by phone at (209) 532-3120 or at the East Sonora Theatre, 13891 Mono Way. Single tickets go on sale Oct. 1.
