ABOUT THE PROGRAM

Les Mis: School Edition gives students the opportunity to experience the excitement of participating in a Mainstage show at WCT.  Unlike our summer junior production, this is an audition-based program and roles are not guaranteed.  Students must audition for the opportunity to be a part of the show.  Audition details can be found below.

Once cast, the tuition can be paid in person (12noon-5pm, Tuesday thru Friday) or over the phone (262.547.0708) before the first rehearsal on March 9, 2020. 

This advanced musical program is an outstanding way for young performers to further strengthen and develop their stage skills.  Over the course of several weeks, students will work with our directors to bring the incredible music and storytelling of Les Mis to life on stage.

But A.C.T. Productions isn’t just for the students. This is a family affair! The families of participating students will be expected to contribute volunteer hours to the program. We know that schedules get busy, but finding time to volunteer and be a part of what these students are doing is truly a rewarding experience for everyone involved.  We can’t do this without you!

 Volunteer opportunities can include:

  • Ushering
  • Program Design
  • Backstage Supervising
  • Costumes/Props/Set Building and Painting
  • Closing Performance Cast Party
