Sleepy Hollow Presents "Les Miserables"

Posted: Updated:

A Broadway musical and award-winning movie comes to life on-stage in Bismarck.

Here's more from Sleepy Hollow's opening weekend show of Les Miserables.

"This is my first real tenor role and I was really scared coming in, but it's definitely been a dream show of mine, I love the music it's great." says Jace Erickson, actor.

"It's the same story, the same characters, the same wonderful music, told through the eyes of local youth, which is such a beautiful thing." says Daniel Walstad, director

"It connects with people because there are so many moments, unique characters that have their own story, people can connect with the different moments." says Erickson.

"Aside from the music being amazing, and the local talent being out of this world, this is a show that, if you open yourself up to it, it has the power to change you." says Walstad.

"This is our first year with our new stage and orchestra pit, ..."

"It's confusing but I like it because it's a love story and battling what you want." says Brenna Olsen, actor.

"It's kind of strange but there's a lot of good actors." says Leila Grubb, 9-year-old actor.

"What's interesting is Les Mis is the first musical that listening to the score I was in junior high, sparked that interest in me, that I knew I was a musical theatre kid, every single song, I can't wait for it, everyone is my favorite." says Walstad.

"This cast is talented beyond its years..." says Erickson.

"It's fun to be the youngest, I like to see the point of view of other people and how their voices are more mature than ours, I can't wait for mine to be like that." says Leila and Brenna.

It is actually Brenna's birthday, she plays Cosette and Eponine and just turned 11 Sunday.

Sleepy Hollow is alternating Les Mis and the Little Mermaid performances.
