Traverse City Central High School is performing “Les Miserables,” and there are TWO performances left. One is tonight, but you still have time to get there by 7, and I’m guessing tickets will be available at the box office.

I love seeing the high school musicals every year for a few reasons, not the least of which is that I always hark back to the time when I played for musicals in that same auditorium years ago. It was especially surreal to watch my daughter play violin in the pit orchestra in the same spot where I played so many years ago.

She’s off to college now, but I still love seeing the kids perform, and I’m always amazed at how truly talented these kids are. “Les Miz” is a complicated storyline, and the TC Central High School team brings it to life beautifully. I saw the performance earlier this week and managed to sneak in a few clandestine photos (you’re not supposed to take photos, so of course, I did).

There’s a performance tonight at 7 p.m., and one tomorrow at 2 p.m. Grab your tickets at the box office when you get there, or at MyNorthTickets.com. Here are some photos from the performance I saw this week (“Black” cast).

SUPPORT YOUR INDEPENDENT LOCAL NEWSPAPER: I started Old Mission Gazette in 2015 because I felt a calling to provide the Old Mission Peninsula community with local news. After decades of writing for newspapers and magazines like the New York Times, Los Angeles Times, Family Circle and Ladies' Home Journal, I really just wanted to write about my own community where I grew up on a cherry farm and raised my own family. So I started my own newspaper.

Because Old Mission Gazette is a "Reader Supported Newspaper" -- meaning it exists because of your financial support -- I hope you'll consider tossing a few bucks our way if I mention your event, your business, your organization or your news item, or if you simply love reading about what's happening on the OMP. In a time when local news is becoming a thing of the past, supporting an independent community newspaper is more important now than ever. Thank you so much for your support! -Jane Boursaw, Editor/Publisher, Old Mission Gazette
