Ireland’s largest Theatre School, BSPA, will be in Belfast on Sunday January 17 on the hunt for young actors wishing to play the highly sought after roles of Cosette, Valjean or Javert in what is set to be the company’s most exciting production to date – Les Miserables School Edition.

This exciting show is open to children and young people aged 9-19 and will take place in Belfast’s Grand Opera House in August 2016. The three week rehearsal & show process will be a residential for those who are travelling from across Ireland to take part.

James Huish, Director at BSPA is excited to be scouting the country for talent. He said: “I am in no doubt that this audition process will be one of the most gruelling I’ve ever undertaken – Ireland is filled with creative talent and I’m so excited to take BSPA on the road and see who we can find!

“Even if you have never been on the stage before but feel you have what it takes we want to see you at one of our open auditions. This is a great opportunity for young people to take part in what is arguably the most recognisable stage production of our time.”

Searching both North and South for a new Cosette is James Huish, Musical Director and founder of BSPA with Caitlin Stitt, aged 11, from Belfast who played the role in a previous BSPA production of Les Miserables. Picture by Brian Morrison.
