The Actorsingers

Presenting Community Theatre since 1955

In the Spotlight Matt Kaiser 

Plays Feuilly in Les Misérables

Matt Kaiser

 

Matt Kaiser is from Merrimack, NH.  “Les Misérables” is his first theatre production out of college.  He plays Feuilly, one of the student revolutionaries, and the hardest part of playing this role has been trying to imagine having such a devotion to a cause that you are willing to die for it. All of that pride, anger and hope has to come out in the songs that we sing.

In the Spotlight Kathy LeClair  

Plays in the female ensemble in Les Misérables

Kathy LeClair

 

Kathy is from Chester, New Hampshire and auditioned this past August for Les Misérables as it was one of her favorite shows.  She found out she was cast while on a golf course and was so excited she started jumping up and down, now that must have been a sight! Kathy has been performing in Actorsingers shows for over 20 years and plays an Old beggar in this production. She got the theatre bug in Kindergarten when she saw the Nutcracker and fell in love at that moment with the stage. Why does Kathy perform? She gets a personal satisfaction of making the audience happy.

In the Spotlight Darcy Rae Hinkle 

Plays Young Cosette in Les Misérables

Darcy Hinkle

 

Darcy is the 3rd generation of her family to participate in Actorsingers! Her grandparents Raul Gual and Sara Gual were involved as board members and on stage in the late 1960s. Her mother, Gillian Hinkle played in the pit orchestra for several shows and her brother, Robert Gual performed on stage with Actorsingers as a teen and again later as an adult.

Darcy loves the show Les Misérables and has performed on stage with Actorsingers in Stuart Little and Seussical. She was really excited to be cast in the show and even more excited that her friend Ben was cast too.

Darcy’s  plays young Cosette when asked how does she connects to her character, she responds “I DON"T KNOW! Well, we are both dreamers!”  She finds her most challenging part of bringing her role to life is not laughing because she knows they are really mean. What Darcy enjoys about theatre different from anything else she does is she gets to be someone else for a while.

Her earliest theatre memory is when she had to run to the back of the auditorium, in the dark, over and over again!

For fun when she isn’t involved in theater she is involved with soccer, drawing, oboe and First Lego League.

In the Spotlight Larry Seiler 

Plays Brujon and 5 other ensemble characters

Larry SeilerLarry Seiler is from West Boylston, MA. In “Les Misérables,” he plays six different ensemble characters including a brutal prison guard, then rises to the level of constable.  He also carouses in the Thenardiers' low tavern.  Ten years later, He’s in Paris as Brujon, a more brutal member of the Thenardier gang who disappears at the end of Act 1, but he returns as the (off-stage) French army officer, end the show as the Major Domo at Marius' and Cosette's wedding.

Larry says playing six characters was challenging at first but as the process went on it got easier.  When asked what he likes the best about theatre, Seiler stated “Musical theater allows me to more completely be the person singing the song. What is more, musical theater is filled with characters who are singing about the most important thing in their life at that moment. That experience is essential to me, and the chance to share such songs with people who want to hear is the biggest thing I get from musical theater -- and I get it there more than anywhere else. It's especially good when achieved in the camaraderie of a group committed to giving all they have to the audience.”

Les Misérables  

2 Weekends Only!

Set in early 19th-century France, it is the story of Jean Valjean, a burly French peasant of abnormal strength and potentially violent nature, and his quest for redemption after serving nineteen years in jail for having stolen a loaf of bread for his starving sister's child.

Valjean decides to break his parole and start his life anew after a kindly bishop inspires him to,but he is relentlessly tracked down by a police inspector named Javert.

Along the way, Valjean and a slew of characters are swept into a revolutionary period in France,where a group of young idealists make their last stand at a street barricade.
