The Fall 2014 Musical: Les Miserables
The JCC Uncommoners will be presenting the Broadway musical Les Miserables in the fall of 2014! This show will be our biggest undertaking ever, as it includes lavish costuming, elaborate staging, and a large orchestra. The show is entirely sung, and is a modern-day opera. It features many famous songs, including: “I Dreamed a Dream,” “Master of the House,” “Castle on a Cloud,” “Do You Hear the People Sing,” “On My Own,” “Bring Him Home,” and “Empty Chairs at Empty Tables.” We will be looking to cast trained singers with strong acting ability for the lead roles.
Early auditions are planned for May 29 & 30, at 7:00 p.m. in the Scharmann Theatre. You will need to prepare a song to sing which will show off your vocal range and acting ability. Your song does not need to be from the show, but it should be memorized and allow you to show emotion and finesse. From these auditions, we will narrow down the playing field and invite the best singers back to vie for the lead roles at our final auditions in August. However, a large chorus and technical crew will be needed. This means that almost everyone will find themselves involved with the show at some level.
For more information about the Les Miserables audition process or technical needs, contact either Bob Schlick at 338.1153, or Steven Gustafson at 338.1166.
