- CAST COMMENTS
LES MISÉRABLES is based on Victor Hugo’s classic novel about ex-convict Jean Valjean and his attempts to start a new life as he is pursued relentlessly by policeman Javert over decades through the tumult of revolutionary France. This blockbuster musical also showcases a Tony Award-winning score including the songs “I Dreamed a Dream,” “Do You Hear the People Sing?,” “One Day More,” “Empty Chairs at Empty Tables,” “A Little Fall of Rain,” “Master of the House,” and “On My Own.” LES MISÉRABLES features a book by Alain Boublil and Claude-Michel Schönberg, lyrics by Herbert Kretzmer, and music by Claude-Michel Schönberg.
This will be a ground breaking event for us at Gateway! We will be featuring students who excel in the Performing Arts, in a world class musical with the same production values as you have come to expect from our Main Stage productions. Director Robin Joy Allan, Gateway's Artistic Director and Los Angeles and NYC Casting Director, with the Films PARENTHOOD, WHEN HARRY MET SALLY, LORD OF THE FLIES and GHOST to her credit, has chosen a cast of Gateway Acting School Alumni and new talent from across Long Island, from as far away as Wantagh and Hampton Bays, Riverhead and Stony Brook. Making a splash on the stage...... the costumes, inspired by the Broadway production, by CostumeWorld, the ever moving lights by the West End's, Doug Harry, the monstrous and moving set AND and the young performing artists themselves showcasing their amazing talents in a crème de la crème setting, (we are practicing our French!) This is no high school musical and a production like you have never seen before on Long Island!
