Les Misérables @ Tower Theatre
7:30 pm

Les Mis

Directed by Mike Nowak and assisted by Brad Ruder. Orchestra conducted by Michael Gesme

“Les Misérables is an epic tale of revolution, romance, and redemption that presents a powerful affirmation of the human spirit told through some of the most beautiful and memorable music ever written for the theatre. The story is set in 19th century France and focuses on convict Jean Valjean, who is on the run while being hunted relentlessly for breaking his parole by his adversary, Police Inspector Javert. Valjean has no choice but to fight for his life and sacrifice everything to honor the promises he has made and protect the people he loves.

“Les Misérables” will have its Central Oregon premiere when it opens at the Tower Theatre, as part of its Marquee Series, on September 12, 2014 for a limited run of six performances. “Les Misérables” is being produced by Shore Thing Productions, the company that staged “1776” In Concert with an all female cast at the Tower in 2012.

Pickin’ & Paddlin’ September 2014

What began as a cou­ple of kayak­ers pickin’ tunes on the back deck after a long day on the river, has grown into a huge com­mu­nity cel­e­bra­tion in to raise funds for the Bend Pad­dle Trail Alliance and their efforts to trans­form the Col­orado Bridge Dam into Oregon’s first white­wa­ter play­park. High­lights include kayak, canoe and stand up pad­dle board demos through­out the late after­noon, local and regional acoustic, blue­grass and Amer­i­cana acts in the evening, micro­brews from Bend’s best brew­eries, food carts, non-profit infor­ma­tion tables and more.

With the pas­sage of Bond Mea­sure 9–86 in Novem­ber of 2012, the major­ity of fund­ing was secured for Bend Parks & Rec to con­struct a safe pas­sage for tubers and a white­wa­ter play park in place of the mill-era dam below the Col­orado Bridge. The BPTA has promised to raise $900K through grants, fundrais­ing and pri­vate dona­tions to fund the white­wa­ter fea­tures of the project. Cur­rently they have $300K more to go and they need your help. All funds raised at Pickin’ & Pad­dlin’ go towards this cause.

Admis­sion: $5 and chil­dren 12 and under are free. Pint glasses are $10 and come with two drink tick­ets for those 21 and older

The Sep­tem­ber 24th event fea­tures Bend favorites Moon Moun­tain Ram­bers, The Pitch­fork Rev­o­lu­tion, and Lau­rel Brauns.

Times:
Demos from 4 – 7 p.m.
The opener begins play­ing at 5 p.m. and the head­liner is done by 9 p.m.

Spe­cial thanks to Deschutes Brew­ery and Cas­cade Lakes Brew­ing for donat­ing the kegs for this event.
