Director Named for Les Misérables

The Outlaw Trail Theater proudly announces that Brian Litton has been named as the Director of the summer 2014 production of Les Misérables. Brian has 25 productions on his list of accomplishments, 15 of those as Music Director, and 10 consecutive years as Music Director for the Outlaw Trail Theater. He has acted as Music Director for Director Deveni Hill in Anything Goes and The Sound of Music, for Director Taunia Wheeler in Damn Yankees and Joseph & the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, for Director David Gale in Wizard of Oz, for Director Jay Haslem in Seven Brides for Seven Brothers, and for Director Denice Allen in Annie, Fiddler on the Roof, and The Wild Bunch. He also served as Music Director for Director Ron Litton in Star of Justice. He orchestrated and recorded all of the music for The Music Man and South Pacific (Music Director again).

Working with Producer/Director Chris Piner at Uintah High School, Brian has been responsible for the rehearsal and performance music for Brigadoon, She Loves Me, Once Upon a Mattress, Scarlet Pimpernel, Clue, The Wedding Singer, Phantom of the Opera, and Aida.

He has worked intimately with choreographers Taunia Wheeler, Deveni Hill, Robin McClellan, Barbara Piner and Annette Daggett.

Excited for his first “Director” opportunity, Les Misérables  is a “sung-through” musical… meaning that it’s all music. There is essentially no dialogue and no actual choreography so this “all-music” show is a great place to start.

Les Misérables is a huge production and will need a lot of our very talented locals. It may well be the biggest show ever done in the Basin… an opportunity to be carefully considered… to be a part of the “most popular musical in the world.”

Auditions for Les Misérables will be held at the end of April and rehearsals will begin on May 5, 2014. The show will open on June 23rd and will run through July 5th, with no shows on Sunday or on the 4th of July. Audition information can be found on the OutlawTrailTheater.com website and the Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/OutlawTrailTheater) will keep posting information as it becomes available.
