Les Miserables

Rachel had a part in 24601, A Musical Tribute to Les Miserables.  It was fantastic.  It was produced by our local community theatre group, so it was a nice mix of adults and kids.  She had four costume changes and lines in seven songs.  She wasn't a character, she was in the chorus and played in scenes all throughout the show. She was a prostitute, a drunken tavern patron, a scullery maid, and a revolutionary on the barricade.  The actors were amazing and the scenery was minimal, but, imaginative.  Jean Val Jean was played by Brandon Nichols - look for big things from this guy - WOW.  What a voice.  Her forensics classes in school prepared her well for this walk-on background role.  Now she wants a spotlight role - next audition is next month.  She has the acting and singing bug!

The show was very moving - and you know Victor Hugo said it best - "To love another person is to see the face of God."
