In nineteenth century France, Jean Valjean is released from years of unjust imprisonment and finds nothing in store for him but mistrust and mistreatment. He breaks his parole in hopes of starting a new life, initiating a lifelong struggle for redemption as he is relentlessly pursued by police inspector Javert, who refuses to believe Valjean can change his ways. Finally, during the Paris student uprising of 1832, Javert must confront his ideals after Valjean spares his life and saves that of the student revolutionary who has captured the heart of Valjean's adopted daughter.

Thank you for auditioning for Les Miserables! 

I can’t express in words how incredible it was to finally hear students auditioning for a musical after the year that we’ve had.  What an amazing night of songs, drama, comedy, courage, vulnerability, and talent.  It also warmed my heart to see how encouraging, supportive, and positive those of you who had callbacks were towards each other.  I know that the release of a cast list brings out many emotions.  Please know that for those of you who landed a dream role, we are celebrating with you!  If you are experiencing the disappointment of a letdown, I totally understand.  We took every single nuance into consideration, and this is truly the best cast list and ensemble for this production.  We prayed over everything as well! 

So here we go!  Les Mis is one of those shows that is life-altering, and a staple in our little musical theater world that everyone should be a part of.  With that being said, due to health restrictions and state mandates, we were not able to cast everyone that came out to audition.  So please be extra loving to your friends who will not be in the show.  

We expect hard work, professionalism, practice, and positive attitudes once rehearsals begin.  As you can see, some of you are triple, and even quadruple cast.  Please come ready next Friday and Saturday to work!  The rehearsal schedule will be sent out this week.  We are very proud of you, and are honored to begin this journey.  We’ll see you at the barricades! 
Ben, Alex, Jonathan, Gabby, and Ella
