Performing Arts @ NHS

Announcing the PNHS Production of Les Misérables: School Edition! Performances November 9-18, 2018.

If you were not able to join us for our information meeting on June 15, 2018, not to worry! Below you will find the information that you will need to prepare to join us for auditions this Fall.

Audition Materials

Character descriptions and music are available by contacting Denene Mulay Koch at They will also be available during our Summer Workshops that are detailed below.


After you receive your music from Mrs. Koch, we are asking that you prepare this audition music for one of the following roles: Fantine, Eponine, Cosette, Madame Thenardier, Valjean, Javert, Marius, Enjolras, or Thenardier. If you would like to be considered for a chorus/ensemble role, we ask that you still prepare one of the previously mentioned roles for your audition.

Summer Workshops

We will host three singing workshops this summer to help you as you prepare your audition and to catch you up on audition materials if you missed our June meeting. These workshops are optional but strongly encouraged. You may choose to be at all three, or you may choose to be at one or two. They will take place on Monday July 30 and on Saturdays August 4 and 11. From 1-3 pm we will coach those singing the audition material for Fantine, Eponine, Cosette, and Madame Thenardier. From 3-6 pm we will coach those singing for Valjean, Javert, Marius, Enjolras, and Thenardier. We will also announce the call back audition music cuts at these workshops.

Informational Meeting - Take 2

We will host another informational meeting on Tuesday, September 4, 2018 after school from 11-11:45 am.

Auditions and Callbacks

Auditions and callbacks will take place after school during the first week back to school beginning on Sept. 5 and continuing through Sept. 7 from 3:00 to 6:00 pm. Check back on this page later in the summer for updates on the dates and times of these auditions. If you are unable to prepare music from Les Mis for your audition, you may sing a song in a similar style (please provide sheet music) or you may sing "Happy Birthday" or "Row, Row, Row Your Boat."
