Cappies Reviewers Rave about Les Misérables: 

Vivacious and heart-wrenching, Yorktown High School’s production of Les Misérables School Edition left those it touched dreaming a dream of hope.”  

  • Amelia Rizzo, Wakefield High School

Even though telling the tale of ‘Les Mis’ can be a monumental task, Yorktown High School rose to the occasion. Just like Valjean, they used hard work, determination, and dedication to make the world better for others with this masterpiece of a production.”
