News: Sell-out season of Les Misérables – The Staged Concert extends again

Les Misérables – The Staged Concert extends again in response to the latest government restrictions, with full cast and additional performances announced.

Performances begin 5 December 2020 at the Sondheim Theatre and will extend to 28 February 2021. Additional dates have been announced to accommodate the government’s latest advice on audience capacity, plus extra performances will allow those who haven’t been able to purchase tickets to buy.

This stellar production has a company of over 50 performers and musicians, who will now play to a reduced seating capacity of under 600 audience members.

Casting for The Staged Concert includes Michael Ball as Javert, Alfie Boe as Jean Valjean, Carrie Hope Fletcher as Fantine, Matt Lucas as Thénardier, Rob Houchen as Marius, Bradley Jaden as Enjolras, Katy Secombe as Madame Thénardier, Shan Ako as Éponine, Amara Okereke as Cosette and at certain performances John Owen-Jones will again play the role of Jean Valjean.

Company also includes Kelly Agbowu, Joseph Anthony, Harry Apps, Charlie Burn, Gerard Carey, Earl Carpenter, Richard Carson, Danny Colligan, Rodney Earl Clarke, Matthew Dale, Matt Dempsey, Josefina Gabrielle, Nic Greenshields, Jessie Hart, Holly-Anne Hull, Ebony Jonelle, Connor Jones, Jessica Joslin, Luke McCall, Frances Mayli McCann, Leo Miles, Corrine Priest, Aaron Pryce-Lewis, Jon Robyns, Grainne Renihan and Samuel Wyn-Morris.

Michael Ball, Alfie Boe, Carrie Hope Fletcher and Matt Lucas will only be able to play a limited number of new dates announced due to previous commitments.

John Owen-Jones continues to play the role of Jean Valjean at certain performances and Shan Ako and Amara Okereke continue to play the roles of Eponine and Cosette respectively. Acclaimed stars of the new full production of Les Misérables include Jon Robyns, Bradley Jaden, Gerard Carey and Josefina Gabrielle, which opened earlier this year at the Sondheim theatre, plus the stars of the UK national tour, Dean Chisnall and Nic Greenshields, will be leading this company for the extension period.
