Auditions will be held on Friday, August 24th. If needed, additional audition times will be opened up on Saturday, August 25th. Then callbacks will be held on the 25th, as well. The location is yet to be determined, but will be posted as soon as possible. Time slots will be opened up for as many as wish to audition.
Before you embark upon this journey, however, we would like to bring a couple things to your attention. Les Miserables is a powerful story of forgiveness and redemption that does include some adult themes. Our production is Les Miserables School Edition, so some of the more mature material has been removed. However there will still be references to prostitution, as this is critical to the story. However, we will handle it conservatively. And while most of the swear words will be removed from NYT’s production, the words “damn” and “hell” will still appear in songs as they were written. Our desire is for parent’s expectations to be clear going into auditions and rehearsals. For more information, here are our FAQs regarding our production of Les Miserables.
To begin the audition sign-up process, please gather all the following information and have your actor hanging out close by. Our current sign-up process does not give you the ability to save and come back later to finish the form. In order to complete this process you will need the following:
