The Broadway epic finally comes to the HCTO stage! Spanning several years of his lifetime, Les Mierables tells the story of Jean Valjean, a runaway convict seeking redemption after serving 19 years in prison for stealing a loaf of bread. His journey to freedom collides and converges with the lives of the worst and the best of humanity. Based on Victor Hugo's epic 19th century novel.
The plot focuses on wisecracking cynic Mary and infuriatingly sensible Bob, only recently divorced and who haven't seen each other in nine months, who meet at his apartment in the hope they can avert an audit by the IRS. A snowstorm forces Mary to spend the night, and the following morning mutual friend and lawyer Oscar, Hollywood heartthrob and neighbor Dirk Winston, and Bob's considerably younger fiancee Tiffany arrice on the scene. The comedy's humor is derived from discussions about income taxes, marriage, alimony, divorce, remarriage, extra-marital affairs, weight-loss programs, exercise, and sex. Ages 12 and up allowed with a ticket. Please no babies or babes in arms. All sales are final. No refunds. Late seating is not allowed into this theatre. Please be in your seats no later than 7:20 PM. Thank you for your consideration of others.

With a name like Pinkalicious Pinkerton, it’s not surprising that this particular little girl would like the color pink. But “like” is the incorrect word. Having a passion for pink is more like it, and her adoration for all things pink gets her into all sorts of colorful trouble in the charming Theatre for Young Audiences production playing at the SCERA Center for the Arts beginning Feb. 9-27. Veteran director Jerry Elison says “Pinkalicious” moves at a hundred miles an hour and the short one-hour musical is perfect to keep the attention of children and their parents, and a great way to introduce kids to the magic of live theatre. Based on the popular children’s book by Victoria and Elizabeth Kann, it is the first of a series of books creatively based on colors. As a musical, it features more than a dozen songs, each charming and funny, including “Pinktastic,” “Just One More,” “Cupcake Dream,” “Pinkititis,” “I Got The Pink Blues,” “Buzz Off,” “The Power of Antioxidants,” “Pink-A-Boo” and more. The musical plays Feb. 9-27, with public shows on Monday and Friday evenings @ 7:00pm at the SCERA Center for the Arts, 745 South State, Orem. Reserved-seat tickets are $6 for adults, and $4 for children (age 3-11) and seniors (age 65+). Tickets are available at www.scera.org, by calling (801) 225-ARTS, or in person at the SCERA Center, open 10am-6pm weekdays and Saturdays from 12Noon-6pm. The all-adult cast also performs weekday morning matinees for school and large groups, which are sold out.
