Exactly 56 student actors at Notre Dame Catholic Preparatory in Scottsdale — three of them from nearby elementary schools — have been busy singing their lungs out. They’re putting on the completely sung production of Les Misérables, which opens tonight and continues next weekend at the school.

The actors/singers are under the guidance of two student music directors and two main volunteers — who happen to be physicians at Mayo Clinic. Dozens of parents and grandparents are reportedly pitching in as are 20 crew members and a student stage manager.

Showtimes are 7 p.m. Feb. 1-2, 7 p.m. Feb. 8-9 and 2 p.m. Feb. 10. The final performance is 7 p.m. Feb. 16. Ticket info.

Les Misérables, the film version, opened in theaters late last year. Fr. Robert Barron offers a commentary, with spoilers, in this Word on Fire video.
