Some Highlighted/Featured Roles include:(in alphabetical order)
COSETTE - beautiful daughter of Fantine; strong-willed, loving, intelligent, personable; not in any sense a "soppy" romantice heroine. Lives a comfortable, if secluded life. Falls in love with Marius, changing her world & her priorities. - B Flat(below Middle C) to High C(2 octaves
above Middle C.
EPONINE - Tough, streetwise, but also sensitive, lonely & tragic. In love with Marius, knowing that he'll never love her. Once grown up, she moves to Paris where she falls on hard times, yet she survives by helping her
father break the law. Sings one of the most famous songs in the show,
"On My Own." - F sharp(below middle C) to E.
FANTINE - Beautiful, noble girl, abandoned by her lover & left to fend for herself & her daughter, Cosette. Rejected by society & forced through
circumstances to become a prostitute. Consumed by poverty, hunger, cold,
loneliness, loss of pride & ultimately the end of her life - G Flat(Below middle C) to D.
JAVERT - Antagonist to Jean Valjean. Unswerving in his belief that men cannot change for the good. "Once a thief, always a thief" is his mantra. Might appear to be the villian but on closer examination it is clear he is not evil. Unchangeable. His attitudes are rigid & unmoveable. He's stern & lacking in compassion. Javert should be an actor who can convincingly stand up to Jean Valjean. - Low F to High F sharp.
JEAN VALJEAN - The hero. We follow his life journey. Supposed to be stronger than other men, and so physically should appear robust. Should be mature and paternal. The ability to change is this roles greatest asset. Human & compassionate. A vocally demanding role. - Low A to High
MARIUS - handsome, romantic hero. Impulsive, willful & headstrong. His moods change according to circumstances. Sweet & tender but also capable of great courage & compassion. In Act 1, he plays Romeo to Cosette's Juliet. He matures as a result of experiences on the barricade. Should
have a lovely, lyrical voice with a contemporary edge. Low A to High A flat.

IMPORTANT - This is a SCHOOL EDITION of "LES MISERABLES". There are no adult roles available. The School Edition cuts a considerable amount of material from the original show. It's divided into 30 scenes and although no "critical" scenes or songs have been removed, it runs 25 minutes
shorter than the "official" version. A few subtle changes of vocal pitch and loss of some verses and a few songs have been made. But this edition will provide a powerful evening of theatre.
PLOT: Based upon Victor Hugo's 1862 novel set in early 19th century France, the plot follows the stories of the characters as they struggle for redemption & revolution.
REHEARSALS: Mondays & Fridays: 7-9:30pm AND Sundays: 5:00-8:30pm
