JCompany stages Les Misérables, Jan. 13-28: Eight La Jollans among the cast

Do you hear the people sing? You will! Les Misérables — a production that has stood the test of time from its origins as a 1800s epic novel to hundreds of staged productions all the way to a 2012 start-studded feature film — gets a “politically engaging” twist in the JCompany Youth Theater incarnation, on stage Jan. 13-28 at the Lawrence Family Jewish Community Center, 4126 Executive Drive.

The standout cast, which gave JCompany artistic director Joey Landwehr a creative outlet in an otherwise standard production, includes eight La Jolla youths — Brendan Dallaire, Henry Austin, Marina Hall, Nathan Conlan, Robert Mackey, Roland Meisler, Stella Wahl and Talia Silver.
