School Edition

Les Misérables is the world’s longest running musical — a true modern classic based on Victor Hugo's novel and featuring one of the most memorable scores of all time. The multi-award-winning Les Misérables is as groundbreaking today as it was when it first premiered in London in 1985.
In nineteenth century France, Jean Valjean is released from years of unjust imprisonment, but finds nothing in store for him but mistrust and mistreatment. He breaks his parole in hopes of starting a new life, initiating a lifelong struggle for redemption as he is relentlessly pursued by police inspector Javert, who refuses to believe Valjean can change his ways. Finally, during the Paris student uprising of 1832, Javert must confront his ideals after Valjean spares his life and saves that of the student revolutionary who has captured the heart of Valjean's adopted daughter.
Epic, grand and uplifting, Les Misérables School Edition packs an emotional wallop that has thrilled audiences all over the world. The sung-through piece is ideal for a cast of exceptional singers and overflows with melodies that are already standards. This author-approved edition has been abridged to a running time of just over two hours while beautifully maintaining the integrity of this musical masterpiece.

Auditions are for CYT Students ages 8-18 who are currently enrolled in a class. Auditions are open and friends and parents are encouraged to stay and cheer on the students who are auditioning. Watching other participants is a valuable learning opportunity. Auditions are limited to ONE MINUTE in length. This is a vocal heavy show so we are requesting only singing--no monologues.. We recommend that your child sing a song in his/her range, add movement or dance, and introduce him/ herself with energy and confidence. It is important to smile, project, make eye contact with the directors, and be well prepared in every way. 

Music: You will be able to upload your music to the new audition form. You may also have a friend or family member who plays piano or guitar accompany you. There will be a piano available at auditions. The director needs to see how well the student can stay with the music, both in tune and in rhythm.

Dance Auditions will be held Saturday, August 17th at 9:00am. All students who audition must attend the dance audition. Students will be taught a dance(s) from the show, and then be asked to perform it for the directors. Parents are welcome to stay and watch the dance audition. Approximate end time is 11:00 am.

Callbacks will be on Saturday, August 17th immediately following the Dance Auditon. CYT callbacks are closed to everyone except the show directors. The directors will call back certain students to sing again, read a scene, dance some more or any combination of these. They will often ask pairs or groups of students to read scenes to see how different combinations of sizes and personalities work together. However, just because a student is not called back does not mean that he or she will not be cast in the show.

Please note:
Students who audition are NOT eligible for a class tuition refund regardless of casting.
