Les Mis in Southern Utah August 12

The Southern Utah Alumni Chapter presents a Scholarship Fund-raising Event at Tuacahn Amphitheater for the performing arts, located just outside of St. George.

Join other alumni and friends for a complimentary social just before Tuacahn’s presentation of Les Misérables, the Tony Award-winning production that became the longest-running West End musical in history!

Meet with fellow Utes for refreshments at the Tuacahn High School Board Room, next door to the theatre. The social begins at 7 p.m. We request that you RSVP to (888) 863-8256 so that we know how many guests plan to attend.

The focus is to raise money to provide scholarships for Southern Utah students to attend the University of Utah while enjoying a great Broadway musical in a stunning red rock setting.

Tuacahn will donate half the price of a ticket to the performance when you identify yourself as a University of Utah alum or friend. To purchase tickets to the performance, call 1 (800) 746-9882.

See you there!

Jean Valjean is released on parole after 19 years on the chain gang. Only the saintly Bishop of Digne treats him kindly, and Valjean, embittered by years of hardship, repays him by stealing some silver. Valjean is caught and brought back by police and is astonished when the Bishop lies to the police to save him, also giving him two precious candlesticks. Valjean decides to start his life anew.
