“Les Miserables” music by Claude-Michel Schönberg, original lyrics by Alain Boublil
Set in early 19th-century France, it is the story of Jean Valjean, a French peasant, and his quest for redemption after serving nineteen years in jail for having stolen a loaf of bread for his sister’s starving child. Valjean decides to break his parole and start his life anew after a kindly bishop inspires him by a tremendous act of mercy, but he is relentlessly tracked down by a police inspector named Javert. Along the way, Valjean and a slew of characters are swept into a revolutionary period in France, where a group of young idealists make their last stand at a street barricade.
AUDITIONS: Auditions for Les Miserables will take place at the JCC on December 15th and 16th in the evening starting at 7:00pm. Callbacks will be held on December 17th. Please prepare 16-32 bars of a song in the style of the show, as well as bring a headshot (any recent picture of yourself will do) and a theatrical resume. An accompanist will be provided.

“The Farnsworth Invention” by Aaron Sorkin
It’s 1929. Two ambitious visionaries race against each other to invent a device called “television.” Separated by two thousand miles, each knows that if he stops working, even for a moment, the other will gain the edge. Who will unlock the key to the greatest innovation of the 20th century: the ruthless media mogul, or the self-taught Idaho farm boy? The answer comes to compelling life in The Farnsworth Invention, the play from Aaron Sorkin, creator of The West Wing.
