Theatre Central to hold auditions for spring musical

Natalie Langan, Staff Writer

Auditions for Theatre Central’s upcoming spring musical, “Les Misérables,” will be held on Jan. 30 and Jan. 31.

The musical follows Jean Valjean, a French peasant who was sent to prison for stealing a loaf of bread. After his 19 year sentence, he decides to break parole, resulting in him being constantly hunted by police inspector Javert. He is then given silver with the purpose of him leading an honest life. Eight years later, Valjean becomes father to young Cosette after her mother’s death, with the duo living on the run from Javert. This story of love, friendship and freedom gives a view of the French Revolution through song.

To audition for the show, sign up at the Theatre Central board located in the flatwing.

Auditioners should prepare a  song not from “Les Misérables,” prepared with sheet music, preferably to display their vocal range. There will be sheet music and tracks available for practice only from “Les Misérables,” posted on the audition page in Theatre Central’s Canvas modules. 

Callbacks will be held on Feb. 2.
