Les Misérables - Special Roles Auditions
Grades 5 - 8
Roles: Gavroche, Male Urchin (Gavroche Understudy), Little Cosette, and Little Eponine (also Little Cosette Understudy)
We are auditioning 5th - 8th graders for these roles. We are specifically looking for strong, experienced actors who are also strong vocalists. Students should have the maturity and stamina to work with high schoolers during this intense, fast-paced rehearsal period.
5th - 8th grade students auditioning for these roles do not need to register before auditioning. If cast, students will be asked to register for a reduced program fee of $395.
Please click on the "sign-up for auditions" to register for this audition.
Roles available for current 5th -8th graders are:
Young Cosette: Fantine’s young daughter. Boards with The Thenardiers. She is mistreated, worked like a drudge, beaten by Madame and bullied by Young Eponine. She is fearful, lonely and dreams of something better. She sings “Castle on a Cloud,” as well as the Little Cosette scene. After that, she will be a street urchin for the Paris scenes.
Young Eponine: non-singing/non-speaking role. The Thenardier’s spoiled, pampered daughter who bullies Eponine. This role will also serve as the understudy to Young Cosette, and will also be a street urchin in the Paris scenes.
Gavroche: A child of the streets who has made his way with intelligence, honor and a cocky courage that endears him to the student revolutionaries. He sees himself as one of them.
Street Urchin: This role will serve as an understudy to Gavroche, and will be a street urchin in the Paris scenes.
