Map & Directions


Preparation

Please prepare a ballad and an uptempo piece in the style of the show that most effectively showcases your range and vocal ability. We will start with the ballad and you will be asked to continue with your second piece at the discretion of the director and music director. An accompanist will be provided, along with additional sides from the show should they be needed.

Please Note: This property is not a typical musical theatre show in the sense of allowing for a lot of character-type voices. It is mostly sung through, extremely vocally demanding, and more so reflects the tenets of an opera in its style and tone. Please consider this BEFORE deciding to audition.

Include a current headshot and resume with your audition request.

Description: In 19th century France, Jean Valjean is released from 19 years of unjust imprisonment, but finds nothing in store for him but mistrust and mistreatment. He breaks his parole in hopes of starting a new life, initiating a life-long 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. His world-view shattered, Javert commits suicide, and Valjean at last attains the peace he has sought for so long.
