The full casting has been announced for Cameron Mackintosh’s Les Misérables as rehearsals begin for the forthcoming UK and Ireland tour.

It comes ahead of its sell-out performances at Curve, Leicester, on 3 November.

Mackintosh first conceived of the new production in 2009 to celebrate the show’s 25th anniversary.

It has since toured the UK throughout 2009/10, concluding with 22 performances at the Barbican.

This production – inspired by the hugely successful film version starring Hugh Jackman, Anne Hathaway and Eddie Redmayne, and with scenery inspired by the paintings of Victor Hugo – has already been seen in North America, Brazil, Mexico, Korea, Japan, Canada, Australia, Spain, France, Manila, Singapore, Dubai and Broadway.

Joining the previously announced Killian Donnelly as ‘Jean Valjean’ will be Nic Greenshields as ‘Javert’, Katie Hall as ‘Fantine’, Martin Ball as ‘Thénardier’, Sophie-Louise Dann as ‘Madame Thénardier’, Harry Apps as ‘Marius’, Tegan Bannister as ‘Eponine’, Will Richardson as ‘Enjolras’ and Bronwen Hanson as ‘Cosette’.

Based on Victor Hugo’s classic novel, Boublil and Schönberg’s magnificent score of Les Miserables includes the songs, “I Dreamed a Dream”, “On My Own”, “Stars”, “Bring Him Home”, “Do You Hear the People Sing?”, “One Day More”, “Empty Chairs at Empty Tables”, “Master Of The House” and many more.

The London Production of Les Misérables continues to play at the Queen’s Theatre where it is currently booking until 2 March 2019.
