Rehearsals for the 2021 Senior College Musical, Les Misérables, have been well and truly underway since the beginning of this year.

Over the final weeks of the recent school holidays, students in the Musical worked hard on their performances during their 3-day Musical Camp.  

Les Misérables is a well-regarded Musical all around the world and is one of the longest-running and most iconic musicals.

Les Misérables tells the story of main character, Jean Valjean, a peasant from France who spends his life seeking redemption after spending an astonishing nineteen years behind bars for stealing a loaf of bread to feed his starving nieces and nephews.

Set in France in the early 1800s, following the aftermath of the French Revolution, Les Misérables is a timeless story of how intertwined destinies reveal the power of compassion and the silent evil of indifference to human suffering.

With a number of leading roles and space for a large ensemble, this Musical has allowed for a rich and diverse cast. Australian School of the Arts students will each have the opportunity to add their own creative flair to their roles, to ensure that a point of difference is created from other Les Misérables productions.

This year’s leading roles will be performed by the following students:

§  Jean Valjean – Zeph Chambers (Year 12)

§  Marius – Anton Bull (Year 11)

§  Javert – Quinn Chambers (Year 12)

§  Fantine – Emma Cobb (Year 12)

§  Cossette – Alivia Hollis (Year 11)

§  Éponine – Sophie Moman (Year 12)

§  Thérnardier – Josh Thompson (Year 11)

§  Mme Thérnardier – Shea Unwin (Year 12)

§  Enjolras – Jasdeep Renny (Year 12)

Stay tuned to see this spectacular performance live, on stage at the Sheldon Event Centre, in April/May this year. The students are all delighted to take to the stage.
