Hi-Liners’ Auditions For “Les Miserables â€“ Student Edition” Are June 4-6
Burien’s Hi-Liners will be holding auditions for “Les Miserables â€“ Student Edition” on June 4, 5 and 6, and they’re looking for young actors.
While we haven’t seen the “Student Edition” of Victor Hugo’s story, but we’re pretty sure it doesn’t involve Disneyfied teens wearing cheerleader uniforms and singing about high school.
Actually, here’s what the Hi-Liners website says about it:
This epic story recounts the struggle against adversity in 19th century France. Imprisoned for stealing a loaf of bread, petty thief Jean Valjean is released from his 19-year term and not only becomes and honest man, but the mayor of a prosperous town and a loving adoptive father – violating his parole in the process. The relentless Inspector Javert, who makes a decent life for Valjean impossible, consequently pursues him. Only years later, after Valjean proves his mettle during a bloody student uprising and saves the life of a young man hopelessly in love with Valjeanâ€™s adopted daughter, does the ex-convict finally feel fully redeemed.
Here are the details:

Burien and The Hi-Liners is the place to start a theatrical career.
