Musical Theatre Crew is proud to present the acclaimed Les Miserables at Hobart’s majestic Theatre Royal in celebration of our 10 years as Hobart’s leading musical theatre training school and theatre production company for young people.

The much-loved Les Miserables will be performed by Musical Theatre Crew’s Senior Performance Ensemble, a troupe of talented and dedicated young performers aged 15-18 years who are passionate about musical theatre. We are thrilled to have MTCrew Alumni and glorious tenor David Thomson, guest starring in the pivotal role of Jean Valjean. David is in the final stages of completing his Bachelor of Music (Classical Voice) at Conservatorium of Music, UTAS, having been a student member of MTCrew for many years, and now working as a Senior Tutor and Voice Teacher. We also welcome our delightful Junior Crew members to perform the children roles.

We have assembled an outstanding, award-winning creative team with direction by Allan Jeffrey and Leiz Moore, choreography by Mandy Lowrie and Jaime Mollineaux-Herbert, vocal direction by Samantha Hammersley, with musical direction by Andrew Castles conducting our 14-piece orchestra of accomplished local musicians including MTCrew’s principal accompanist Iestyn Parry on keys. In addition to the vibrant and engaging performances of the memorable songs including Master of the House, I Dreamed a Dream and On My Own, the show features striking staging and glorious costumes.

We are so excited to be returning to the stage after a challenging year for the performing arts and can’t wait to share this wonderful production with Hobart audiences.

Join us on the barricade to celebrate the power of people overcoming adversity and support emerging Tasmanian talent as we welcome you back to the theatre in January 2021 to ‘hear the people sing’ for ‘one day more’ with Les Miserables!
