Ever fancied dreaming a dream on some of the biggest stages in the UK? Well now might be your chance as open auditions have been announced for the UK and Ireland tour of Les Misérables.

A post shared on the show's Facebook page says the production is seeking 'male and female performers, from 18 to 35, with excellent singing voices and acting skills for ensemble and lead roles.'

Auditions will be held at Wales Millennium Centre in Cardiff from 10am to 11am on 21 June and Liverpool Empire Theatre from 10am to 11am on 25 June, with recalls held in London on 26, 27 and 29 June.

Budding Eponines and Mariuses will need to take a copy of their CV and prepared sheet music to sing, and must be eligible to work in the UK and available for a contract starting from 17 September 2018 for at least a year.

Based on Victor Hugo's 1862 novel about the lives of people in 19th century France, Boublil and Schönberg's musical features the classic songs "I Dreamed a Dream", "On My Own" and "Do You Hear the People Sing?".

The UK tour – which will star Killian Donnelly as Jean Valjean – begins at Curve, Leicester in November.
