Les Mis is back at Wales Millennium Centre this Christmas

Storm the barricades for a ticket to the smash hit musical Les Misérables, the jewel in Wales Millennium Centre’s glittering Christmas programme.

Following a sell-out run, Cameron Mackintosh’s acclaimed production of Boublil and Schönberg’s musical Les Misérables returns to Wales Millennium Centre this Christmas.

This brilliant new staging has taken the world by storm and has been hailed “Les Mis for the 21st Century”. With scenery inspired by the paintings of Victor Hugo, the magnificent score of Les Misérables includes the songs I Dreamed a Dream, On My Own, Bring Him Home, One Day More, Master Of The House and many more.

The cast features a host of Welsh talent including Lauren Drew from Port Talbot, who was a semi-finalist on ITV’s The Voice UK in 2021. Lauren was most recently seen in Legally Blonde at Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre, and her other theatre credits include Catherine of Aragon in the UK Tour of SIX, Heathers, Evita and Kinky Boots.

On returning to Wales, Lauren said: “I’m so excited to return to Wales Millennium Centre in one of my dream roles in one of my favourite musicals. I fell in love with Les Mis when I was 17 years old and was cast as Éponine in the Neath Port Talbot College production. Never did I think I would be playing Fantine professionally on stage 12 years later!

“A few years ago, I played Catherine of Aragon in SIX the Musical at WMC, and I will never forget the roar that came from all the friends, family and people who have followed my career as I ended my song. There was so much love and support in the auditorium, it really was an indescribable feeling that I’ll never forget. There is nothing more special than performing at home, each time becomes another career highlight and I can’t wait to make dreaming a dream a reality.”

Also starring are Siobhan O’Driscoll as ‘Éponine’, Dean Chisnall as ‘Jean Valjean’, Nic Greenshields as ‘Javert’, Merthyr Tydfil-born Ian Hughes as ‘Thénardier’, Will Callan as ‘Marius’, Helen Walsh as ‘Madame Thénardier’, Samuel Wyn-Morris from Llanelli as ‘Enjolras’ and Paige Blankson as ‘Cosette’.

Seen by over 120 million people worldwide in 52 countries and in 22 languages, Les Misérables is undisputedly one of the world’s most popular musicals.
