The Arkansas Repertory Theatre works in partnership with the Clinton School of Public Service to participate in the UACS’s Distinguished Speaker Series, hosting educational panel discussions on various Rep productions. The latest in these takes place today, Thursday, March 6 at 12 noon at Sturgis Hall in Clinton Presidential Park.
Arkansas Repertory Theatre producing artistic director, Bob Hupp, will host a panel discussion on the upcoming production of the Tony Award winning musical Les Miserables, which returns to the Rep’s stage.
Les Miserables, one of the most popular shows in The Rep’s history, is a musical by Alain Boublil and Claude-Michel Schönberg, and returns to the Rep from March 5 through April 6, 2014 under the direction of Robert Hupp. Les Miserables is based on the novel by Victor Hugo and tells the story of Jean Valjean as he evades police after breaking his parole, while protecting a young orphan named Cosette. Panelists will include members of The Rep’s creative team in a conversation about how film productions and stage productions differ while attempting to tell the same story.
Les Miserable opens tomorrow night (with previews last night and tonight). It runs through Sunday, April 6. Wednesday, Thursday and Sunday evening performances are at 7 p.m., Friday, Saturday evening performances are at 8 p.m. Sunday Matinees performances are at 2 p.m.
