We urgently need to recast Fantine (playing age 20-35) and Little Cosette (playing age 8 - 12) for our theatre production of Les Miserables: The Memoirs of Jean Valjean.
The roles were being played by a lovely real life mother and daughter, who have had to withdraw due to a sudden family crisis.
This show is a full length drama (NOT the musical) based on the novel by Victor Hugo. Rehearsals are underway already, on Wednesday evenings 6.30pm - 9.30pm, and Sundays 12.30pm - 5pm, at Chestnut Community Centre, 1-3 Poplar Close, Brixham, TQ5 0SA, before touring around the South Devon area.
Actors MUST be based in the South Devon area and able to attend rehearsals and all performances as key characters in the show.
Little Cosette, as a minor, MUST be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian at all rehearsals and performances; and casting is subject to a child actor license being obtained by the production for the child to be in the show.
Payment is on equal profit share (whatever we make from ticket sales is shared equally between each cast and crew member), plus portfolio photographs/ videos. The shows at Brixham Theatre are also filmed for streaming online via the online section of the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. It is profitshare rather than any more, because as a theatre company led by an autistic woman, we find it very difficult to access grant funding , but at the same time, we want to do as much as is within our power for all the people involved with our shows.
The performances are on tour around South Devon in May/ June 2023 with tickets for all shows already on sale.
