COLORADO SPRINGS – The musical Les Miserables is making a stop in Colorado Springs and its a stop near and dear to the heart of one production member.

Resident director Richard Barth grew up in Cañon City and started his theater career in Southern Colorado. He even saw the show the last time it was in town back in 1995.

“The distance from Cañon City to Colorado Springs is 50 miles, but it’s taken me quite a bit of traveling around to get back to this venue,” Barth said.

His credits as an actor include Miss Saigon, South Pacific, Grease and Oklahoma.

Les Miserables is playing at the Pikes Peak Center through Sunday. Details on show times and tickets can be found at
