"Les Miserables" School Edition Auditions May 3rd and 4th

The Twilight Theatre is proud to announce auditions for "Les Miserables", the School Edition. Auditions are open to ages 8-19, and show dates are July 16, 17, 30, and 31 at the Frederick Brown Jr. Amphitheater in Peachtree City. Auditions will be held Monday, May 3 and Tuesday, May 4 at Fayetteville First United Methodist Church from 4:30 to 8:30. A large cast of 60-100 is required, and families are encouraged to audition together. Audition requirements and a character breakdown can be found on Twilight's website.

This is not the first time Twilight has mounted a production of "Les Miserables". In 2007, their highly acclaimed production resulted in Twilight being voted Fox 5's "Best Theatre 2007". Alison Chambers, Twilight's Artistic Director and the director of "Les Miserables", says the show is being brought back due to popular demand. "A lot of the kids involved last time said the show changed their lives and made them grow as an actor more than any other they have ever done. We made the decision that we should do this show every three years to give everyone we can the opportunity. It's not often that folks this age get to take part in such a vocally and emotionally demanding show - it's quite a challenge," Chambers states.
