The Historic Palace Theatre is located in the heart of downtown Lockport, NY. Built in 1925, by Charles Dickenson, the proscenium arch style space is noted at the gem of the city. The theatre is now owned and operated by a non-profit organization, Historic Palace Inc. Les Misérables is a sung-through musical based on the novel of the same name by

French poet and playwright, Victor Hugo. Set in early 19th-century France, it is the story of Jean Valjean, a French peasant and his quest for redemption after serving nineteen years in jail for having stolen a loaf of bread for his starving sister's child. Valjean decides to break his parole and start his life anew after a kindly bishop inspires him to, but he is relentlessly tracked down by a police inspector named Javert. Along the way, Valjean and a slew of characters are swept into a revolutionary period in France, where a group of young idealists make their last stand at a street barricade.
