      Les Miserables cast performing more shows due to high tickets sales

      The musical "Les Miserables" is on stage at the Old Town Playhouse this fall, and becuase of it's popularity, the cast will perform two more shows in November.

      On Friday, the Old Town Playhouse executive director, Phil Murphy announced the extra performances.

      The show was scheduled to run from Oct. 4 to Nov. 2, but with most of the shows already sold out, the Old Town Playhouse added another weekend to the production.

      Although the show is bringing business to the threatre, cast members said performing in "Les Miserables" is about much more.

      Lisa Blackburn, who plays Madame Thenardier, said that auditioning for the show was something on her bucket list.

      "It's something I've wanted to do most of my life," said Danielle Pelshaw who is a member of the ensemble. Pelshaw also said that auditioning for the show was something on her bucket list too.

      Every actor on stage in "Les Miserables" is a volunteer, and donates their time to be part of the show.

      Psaira Baty, who has the role of Eponine in the show said that it is a juggling act to be in the show, work full time and take care of her daughter, but she said she, "wouldn't change it for the world [because] it's been such a great opportunity."

      You can get your tickets on the Old Town Playhouse website, or by calling the box office at 231-947-2210.
