There will be four performances at the Flagler Auditorium.
The dramatic story of Les Misérables is coming to the Flagler Auditorium stage, with a cast of 53 Flagler Palm Coast High School students and four Buddy Taylor Middle School students.
The musical is based on the 1862 novel of the same name by French poet and novelist Victor Hugo. The production's company includes over a dozen behind-the-scenes tech students, as well as music/stage directing by Kelly Riveria, vocal coaching from Sara Horton and technical directing by Jack Neiberlein.
Hear from the production's leads:
“This is literally my dream role; I’ve always wanted to perform as Jean Valjean in this show, because I really relate to him a lot. I don’t want to giveaway too much from the show, but let’s just saw he goes through some struggles in his past life and he comes back harder and stronger than ever.”
- Nicholas Aiello, who plays Jean Valjean
“This production is near and dear to my heart. It’s my first real, big lead in a show like this. It’s very nerve-wracking, but I wouldn’t want it any other way. Fantine is a dream role of mine, and working alongside a cast like this is so helpful because they’re all encouraging and supportive.”
- Isabella Scarcella, who plays Fantine
“Cosette has this type of fearlessness and she has this type of courage and this hope in her eyes that I have found very inspiring, and I’ve found that she has helped me to become more of an optimist.”
- Hannah Hick, who plays Cosette
“The impact this role has had on me is being able to really really relate to a character and bring life to someone who maybe doesn’t always reveal her feelings right away, but gets to kind of slowly reveal herself to the audience.”
- Elana Sobhani, who plays Eponine
