Join the revolution as Dawson High School’s Ovation Theatre presents the third longest-running show on Broadway — “Les Misérables.”

This epic musical runs Jan. 30-31 and Feb. 1 and 6-8 at 7:30 p.m. in the DHS auditorium, 2050 Cullen Boulevard.

Set in early 19th-century France, “Les Misérables” tells the story of Jean Valjean, a burly French peasant who seeks redemption after serving 19 years for having stolen a loaf of bread for his starving sister’s child.

Breaking his parole, Valjean starts his life anew after a kindly bishop inspires him. Along the way, however, a police inspector, Javert, relentlessly tracks him down, and Valjean and a slew of other characters are swept into a revolution in Paris, where young idealists make their last stand at a street barricade.

Come see the musical that features Broadway hits such as “I Dreamed a Dream,” “One Day More,” “On My Own” and “Bring Him Home.”
