Photographing a Theatre Classic :: Les Miserables at Grand Rapids Civic Theatre

We recently talked about how we had the opportunity to photograph the promotional shots for the Grand Rapids Civic Theatre's upcoming show, Les Miserables. Now the initial dress rehearsal has come and gone and the show is in full swing.

 When we stopped by to shoot the rehearsal we were blown away by the amount of great shots up for grabs.

Not only did we get to see the show from behind the lens, but we also got to see it as an audience member, off the clock. Both experiences offered a completely different point of view, and I must admit, we were not disappointed. In fact, we've been shooting for the Civic Theatre for 3 years now and Matt said this was the best show he's seen there. The costumes, sets, and musical numbers were just superb! We truly have some incredible talent in the west Michigan area.

My Experience Grand Rapids used one of our shots when they featured the show on their Spring Arts Preview post.

eightWest did a recent interview with a few of the cast members and they used some of our images to accompany the story. They did a fantastic job showcasing all the work that goes on behind the scenes of a production this large. The show runs through March 30, but it is selling out quickly. Get your tickets today at
