First Published 28 April 2017, Last Updated 27 October 2017

From Monday 12 June 2017, there will be major cast changes at the West End production of Les Misérables at the Queen’s Theatre, which is now in its record breaking 33rd year.

Cameron Mackintosh has today announced that Killian Donnelly will star as Jean Valjean. He joins Les Misérables fresh from Broadway, where he is currently playing the lead role of Charlie Price in Kinky Boots, having been nominated for an Olivier Award in the West End production last year.

West End leading lady and former Hollyoaks star Carley Stenson, will join the company as Fantine, and Hayden Tee returns to play Javert from 17 July, having performed the role at The Queen’s Theatre until 22 April this year.

Also joining the company are Steven Meo as Thénardier; Karis Jack as Eponine, Jacqueline Tate as Madame Thénardier and Hyoie O’Grady as Enjolras. Paul Wilkins will continue in the role of Marius and Charlotte Kennedy will continue in the role of Cosette, having both originally joined the company in 2015.

From 17 July 2017 the full company will be: Emma Barr; Adam Bayjou; Oliver Brenin; Ciarán Bowling; Hugo Chiarella; Andy Conaghan; Killian Donnelly; Alice Ellen Wright; Sophie-May Feek; Hyoie O’Grady; Catherine Hannay; Antony Hansen; Holly-Anne Hull; James Hume; Karis Jack; Ciaran Joyce; Charlotte Kennedy; Katie Kerr; Rebecca Lafferty; Jo Loxton; John Lumsden; Anna McGarahan; Steven Meo; Jonny Purchase; Lauren Soley; Carley Stenson; Jacqueline Tate; Shaq Taylor; George Tebbutt; Hayden Tee; Lee Van Geleen; Danny Whitehead and Paul Wilkins.

The international award-winning musical sweeps its audience through an epic tale of passion and destruction, against the backdrop of a nation in the grip of revolution.

Set amid the social and political struggles of 19th century France, Les Misérables tells the story of former prisoner Jean Valjean, who is pursued for decades by his policeman nemesis, Javert.

Killian’s other theatre credits include Huey in the original London cast of Memphis at the Shaftesbury Theatre, for which he was also nominated for an Olivier Award. He first joined the company of Les Misérables in 2008, going onto play the role of Enjolras from 2009 to 2011. In 2010, he played the role of Courfeyrac in the 25th Anniversary Concert Of Les Misérables at The O2 Arena, and also played the role of Combeferre in the multi-award-winning film of the show, released in 2012.

Carley Stenson’s West End credits include Elle Woods in Legally Blonde, Princess Fiona in Shrek The Musical and Lady of the Lake in Spamalot. Carley also starred as Christine Colgate in the tour of Dirty Rotten Scoundrels. She is probably best known for playing the regular role of Steph Cunningham in Channel 4’s Hollyoaks, for which she was nominated for several awards during her 10 years with the show.

Les Misérables is currently booking until the 14 October 2017 at the Queen’s Theatre – book your tickets today!
