Middleton Players Theatre is proud to announce the area’s premiere community theater production of “Les Miserables,” directed by Matt Starika-Jolivet and Thomas Kasdorf, with performance dates from July 5-13 at the Middleton Performing Arts Center. This full-scale version will offer roles for up to 50 local performers ages 8-adult, as well as backstage crew and pit orchestra opportunities. All roles are available for casting. Children’s roles (young Cosette, young Eponine and Gavroche) will be double cast.

Upcoming auditions for adult roles, including principals and ensemble will take place on February 15 (6 PM-10 PM) and February 16 (1PM-5 PM) at the Clark Street Community School (formerly known as MASH), corner of Lee and Clark Streets, in Middleton. Auditions will be by appointment and scheduled online by contacting:  cmlhome@gmail.com.  Adult participants (ages 15 and up) should prepare 32 bars of a song/ballad of a style similar to the show, but not from the show. A pianist will be available. Please bring your own sheet music, and a headshot/resume, if possible. Online auditions may also be submitted by contacting the email address noted above.

Group auditions for children (ages 8-13) will take place on Sunday, February 17 at the Clark Street School from 1 PM-3 PM. No preparation is necessary. A song will be taught at auditions.

Rehearsals will begin in late April, and will take place at the Clark Street School or at the Middleton Performing Arts Center. Rehearsal schedules include Monday through Thursday evenings plus Sunday afternoons, although not all cast are called for every rehearsal. Saturdays are usually held open for set builds and other technical work. Please email cmlhome@gmail.com for more audition information, or check out our webpage www.middletonplayers.com for show updates.
