Five members of the 2018 company return having been cast members of NPOS’s 1994 production of Les Miserables (John Ainsworth, Anthony Joines, Kevin Landrigan, Raylene Hunt and Ann Stewart), but there are also 9 people in the company announced today who will be making their onstage debut for New Plymouth Operatic. “It’s an exciting mix” added Mr Landrigan.
Principal castings for the 9 lead roles will be announced individually over the coming few weeks. Casting of the Childrens roles (Gavroche, Young Cosette and Young Eponine) will be confirmed in February.
The cast will meet within the next few weeks for a welcome get together, with rehearsals kicking into full swing early in the new year. “With the audition process concluded, we are very much looking forward to hearing these people sing together once rehearsal start” concluded Mr Landrigan.
