EDMT Announces Summer Show Auditions

El Dorado Hills: El Dorado Musical Theatre will be holding auditions for two exciting summer musical productions, “Les Miserables” and “Disney’s Mulan”, beginning at 9:00 am on Saturday, May 2nd. Online registration at will open on Monday, April 20th at 8:00 pm and close on Wednesday, April 29th at 8:00 pm or when casts are full.

The summer Mainstage show “Les Miserables” is open to performers ages 13-20. This epic story recounts the struggle against adversity in 19th century France. Imprisoned for stealing a loaf of bread, petty thief Jean Valjean is released from his 19-year term and not only becomes and honest man, but the mayor of a prosperous town and a loving adoptive father - violating his parole in the process. The relentless Inspector Javert, who makes a decent life for Valjean impossible, consequently pursues him. Only years later, after Valjean proves his mettle during a bloody student uprising and saves the life of a young man hopelessly in love with Valjean’s adopted daughter, does the ex-convict finally feel fully redeemed.

EDMT’s Rising Stars (performers aged 6-13) will perform“Disney’s Mulan”, based on the 1998 Disney movie. Travel back to the legendary, story-telling days of ancient China. The Huns have invaded, and it is up to the misfit Mulan and her mischievous sidekick Mushu to save the Emperor! “Mulan”, will be directed by Stephanie Hudson and choreographed by Best of Broadway’s Kat Bahry, is a heartwarming celebration of culture, honor and a fighting spirit. The score includes favorites like “Reflection,” “Honor to Us All” and “I’ll Make a Man Out of You” as well as new songs that will get the audience up on its feet!

All who audition should dress to dance and be prepared to sing a song of up to one minute in length to either a background CD, acapella or with the accompanist. More information about registration, roles, and fees can be found online at or by calling (916) 941-SING.
