Fountain Hills Theater announces the auditions for the play Les Miserables School Edition.

Set against the backdrop of 19th-century France and the aftermath of the French Revolution, this timeless story of intertwined destinies reveals the power of compassion and the quiet evil of indifference to human suffering.

Performances will run from April 14-23, 2023, with a possible extension through April 30.  Performances take place on Fridays and Saturdays at 7:00PM and Sundays at 2PM.

Auditions will be held Saturday, Feb. 4 @ 3:00pm and Sunday, Feb 5 @ 11:00am.  Callbacks (If required) Monday, Feb. 6 @ 5:00pm. Auditioners are asked to prepare an age-appropriate monologue from a previously published work, not to exceed 2 minutes in length, and 16 to 32 bars of an upbeat song or ballad that best shows off their voice. Please bring sheet music in the appropriate key (an accompanist will be provided). A CD or edited karaoke track in the proper key may be substituted for sheet music, but must be queued to the desired start, must contain music only with no vocal assist, and must come with any special connectors necessary for your playback device. Dress to move for dance audition following.
