Tickets now available for 'FTC's Les Misérables'
Tickets are on sale now for “Les Misérables,” the first production in the Fredericksburg Theater Company’s 18th season, which opens on June 20.
The musical, which continues weekends through July 6, is based on the novel by Victor Hugo set in 19th century France and tells the story of Jean Valjean, a man seeking redemption after serving 19 years in jail for stealing a loaf of bread for his sister’s child.
Performances will be held Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m. with Sunday matinees at 2 p.m.
“When I first saw ‘Les Misérables’ 20 years ago, I was drawn into the show because of the combination of very personal stories and the theatrical presentation,” director Jim Weisman said. “In our production, we’re adding the close up and personal element that you won’t get in the big touring theaters. We have an amazingly talented cast and I think audiences will be completely entranced.”
Cast members include Pierre Minjauw as Jean Valjean, Kerry Goff as Javert, September van der Stoel as Fantine, Kristin DeGroot as Éponine, Jeff Jeffers as Thénardier, Helena McFarland-Sommers as Madame Thénardier, Will Vaughan as Marius, Faith Hearn as Cosette, Zac Tiedemann as Enjolras, Haley Cole as Little Cosette and Jacob Lacy as Gavroche.
Chorus members include Rhonda Behrends, Jami Bell, Brynn Bowyer, Tom Bowyer, Kyle Carroll, J.D. Cole, Amy Fajkus, Sarah Fontenot, Ashleigh Goff, Bobbi Grimmer, Lucinda Harvey, Hailey Knudsen, Tracy Knudsen, Larry Kuhlken, Angela Lacy, Hannah Lacy, Randye McAnally, Katie Murphy and Cameron Netherland.
