Passaic Valley High School’s summer theater program is putting on Les Miserables this weekend, and since there’s someone from Verona in the pit, we though we’d share the news.
Brian Michalowski, a band and theater director at H.B. Whitehorne, will be playing keyboards for the show, which will have evening performances on Thursday, Friday and Saturday and a matinee on Sunday.
PV Theater is a highly competitive program that draws top high school talent from across northern New Jersey. This year’s cast includes performers from North Caldwell, Cedar Grove, Parsippany, Little Falls, Clifton, Totowa, Mountain Lakes, Rockaway, Denville, Lyndhurst, West Milford, Woodland Park, Wanaque, and Ringwood. In past years, PV Theater has performed Avenue Q, Jeckyll & Hyde, South Pacific, Miss Saigon, Rent and Tommy.
The show is the school edition of Les Miz, so the run time is just over two hours. Performances will be held on August 1, 2, and 3 at 8 p.m. with a 2 p.m. matinee on Sunday, August 4. Tickets, which are $15 for students and seniors and $18 for adults, can be purchased at the door or online. Passaic Valley High School is located at 100 East Main Street in Little Falls. There’s a large parking lot in back of the school, which you can access from Browertown Road (the road that leads to ShopRite).
