There are 2 open roles available and auditions will be held by appointment only. The open roles are that of a young Cosette who is a female ages 7 to 10 and that of Gavroche, a male ages 8 to 11.

Les Misérables is based on the French historical novel of the same name by Victor Hugo – the novel explores the history, politics and social situations in 19 Century France. The novel has been turned into a musical as well as a film in recent years. The musical is set in early 19th-century France where a peasant Jean Valjean has just been released from prison where he served 19 years for stealing a loaf of bread. He subsequently breaks his parole and is swept up into revolution led by young idealists.
