CHRISTMAS CANTEEN 2014
SYNOPSIS: Gwinnett’s longest running theatrical holiday tradition, Christmas Canteen, returns for its 19th season. This nostalgic musical revue is a Winter Wonderland that just keeps getting better.

**The roles of Female Ensemble 2, Female Ensemble 3, Male Ensemble 1, Male Ensemble 2, and Male Ensemble 3 have been precast.**

Female Ensemble 1: Soprano. Dancer.

LES MISÉRABLES
SYNOPSIS: Hunted relentlessly by police inspector Javert for breaking parole, Jean Valjean must leave his past behind and keep his vow to raise the young, orphaned Cosette amid revolution.

**The roles of Valjean, Javert, M. Thenarier, Mme. Thenardier, Fantine, Cosette, Eponine, Marius, Enjolras, and Bishop of Digne have been pre-cast. We will be auditioning possible replacements and understudies for the roles listed below**

Jean Valjean- Dramatic Tenor. Prisoner 24601. After being released from imprisonment for serving nineteen years (five for stealing a loaf of bread and fourteen for multiple escape attempts), he breaks parole and, after receiving mercy from Bishop Myriel, turns his life around to live for God, showing the effects of God's grace that bring a corrupt man into virtuous and selfless living. He changes his identity, becoming the wealthy mayor of a small town. He later adopts Cosette, the only daughter of Fantine. At the end, he eventually dies and the spirit of Fantine thanks him for raising her child.

Inspector Javert- Baritone. Respects the law above all else and relentlessly pursues Valjean, hoping to bring the escaped convict to justice. He firmly believes in the justice of the law, and has no room for mercy. In the end he commits suicide, broken by the mercy he experiences from Valjean.

Fantine- Lyric Mezzo-Soprano. A poor worker who loses her job and, as a result, turns to prostitution in order to continue paying the Thénardiers to care for her illegitimate daughter, Cosette. As Fantine dies of consumption, she asks Valjean to look after her child. Ultimately she appears as a spirit and escorts the dying Valjean to Heaven.
