Les Misérables is the winner of 8 Tony Awards, and the BHS interpretation promises to deliver moving moments, humor, song and dance, 19th Century costuming and sets, and a non-stop musical score.

Attendees will enjoy a relaxing meal and mocktail in the BHS Commons with fellow theatre fans then stroll on over to the Earl Kelly Performing Arts Center to prime reserved seats. Tickets for the Dinner Gala/Show combination start at $35 and can be reserved online.
