The world’s longest-running musical, Les Misérables, has announced new casting to take effect at the Queen’s Theatre, London, this Summer.

From Monday 11 June 2018, Dean Chisnall (Blood Brothers, UK tour; Shrek, West End) will play the central role of fugitive Jean Valjean. He will be joined by Amara Okereke (The Hired Man, Other Palace) as Cosette, Toby Miles (making his professional West End debut) as Marius, Elena Skye (Kinky Boots, West End) as Eponine, and Vivien Parry (Half A Sixpence) as Madame Thénardier.

Valjean’s nemesis, Javert, will continue to be played by David Thaxton until Saturday 21 July; from the following Monday (23 July), current Wicked cast member Bradley Jaden will swap one West End starring role for another, portraying Javert.

Continuing in their roles beyond the cast change are Steven Meo as Thénardier, and Carley Stenson as Fantine.

The remainder of the Les Misérables company will comprise Tegan Bannister, Emma Barr, Adam Bayjou, Ciarán Bowling, Oliver Brenin, Grace Farrell, Sophie-May Feek, Adam Filipe, Antony Hanson, Sam Harrison, Barnaby Hughes, James Hume, Ciaran Joyce, Katie Kerr, Rebecca Lafferty, Sarah Lark, Hannah Grace Lawson, Jessica Lee, Jo Loxton, Anna McGarahan, James Nicholson, Ben Tyler,  Joe Vetch, Raymond Walsh and Andrew York. Further casting is to be announced.

Seen by 70 million people worldwide in 51 countries and in 22 languages, the globally acclaimed musical is now in its record breaking 33rd year in the West End.

Based on Victor Hugo’s classic novel, Boublil and Schönberg’s magnificent score of Les Misérables includes the songs I Dreamed A Dream, On My Own, Stars, Bring Him Home, Do You Hear the People Sing?, One Day More, Empty Chairs at Empty Tables, Master Of The House – and many more.

Set amid the social and political struggles of 19th century France, the show follows one man’s determination to survive and leave his past behind – and another’s unwavering, vengeful persecution.

We now sell our famous TKTS Booth discounts online here at Official London Theatre.

We are now cancelling all performances up until and including 31 May 2020 to help us process existing bookings whilst we wait for further clarity from the government in terms of when we will be able to reopen.

We are so sorry that in these testing and difficult times you are not able to enjoy the show you have booked for and hope the following helps clarify next steps in respect of your tickets .

There is nothing that you need to do if your performance has been cancelled, but we do ask for your patience.

If you have booked directly with the theatre or show website for an affected performance, please be assured that they will contact you directly to arrange an exchange for a later date, a credit note/voucher or a refund. If you have booked via a ticket agent they will also be in contact with you directly.

We are processing in strict date order of performance, so you are likely to be contacted after the date you were due to go to the theatre. However, we want to reassure you that you will be contacted, and your order will be processed, but please do bear with us.

We’d like to thank everyone who has been patient and kind in dealing with their ticket providers so far and we are sorry that we cannot process your order as quickly as we would like.

Please do not contact your credit card company as that will slow the process down and put an additional burden on our box office and ticket agent teams.

In order for us to serve our audiences the best we can, please do not get in touch with your point of sale if you have booked for performances after 31 May. Please be reassured that if we have to cancel future performances you will be directly contacted by your theatre or ticket provider. Our producers continue to plan for all eventualities dependent on the individual needs of their shows and we will provide further updates on specific shows as and when they become available.

We look forward to welcoming you back into our theatres as soon as we are allowed to resume performances. In the meantime stay safe and healthy.
