-Les Miserables.

0:00:020:00:04

-A true phenomenon.

0:00:040:00:06

-The longest-running musical

-in the West End.

0:00:060:00:10

-A staggeringly successful show,

-seen by over 70m people...

0:00:140:00:19

-..in 22 languages and 43 countries.

0:00:200:00:23

-The film version of the show

-won three Oscars.

0:00:240:00:27

-As part of the Centre's...

0:00:320:00:33

-..and the Cardiff Urdd camp's

-10th birthday...

0:00:340:00:37

-..the show is being staged.

0:00:370:00:40

-This is a chronicle of the journey

-from first audition to final note...

0:00:410:00:46

-..including the support

-of Sir Cameron Mackintosh...

0:00:460:00:50

-..to provide a stage for Wales'

-most exciting young talent.

0:00:500:00:54

-With the opening performance

-approaching...

0:01:020:01:05

-..the theatre is a hive of activity

-as the set is constructed.

0:01:050:01:09

-In the rehearsal room...

0:01:130:01:15

-..the cast are learning new music

-for the wedding scene.

0:01:150:01:20

-Cefin is confident the cast

-can rise to the challenge.

0:01:200:01:26

-And the winner!

0:01:360:01:38

-The experience of working with

-Cefin Roberts has been incredible.

0:01:410:01:46

-He's a professional.

0:01:460:01:48

-He doesn't copy

-what's going on in the West End.

0:01:480:01:51

-He has a different vision

-for the show.

0:01:520:01:54

-That's good for us, presenting

-the show in a different way.

0:01:550:01:59

-The music tells us, "God!"

0:01:590:02:01

-When he says, "Get off the street,"

-you go!

0:02:010:02:05

-You can see on their faces if

-they're listening and understanding.

0:02:050:02:10

-I know they'll go

-the extra mile every time.

0:02:100:02:13

-I then read the novel myself...

0:02:130:02:15

-..to learn and understand more

-about the original vision.

0:02:160:02:21

-They understand every aspect

-of the show by now.

0:02:210:02:26

-They convey the sadness. I've told

-them it's a show about the poor.

0:02:260:02:31

-I like the way Cefin directs.

0:02:320:02:34

-He's read the books,

-he's watched the shows.

0:02:350:02:39

-He has his own ideas about things.

0:02:390:02:42

-When I was young, I'd sing to Mam.

0:02:550:02:58

-Mam would be trying to wash me

-in the bath and I would sing.

0:02:580:03:01

-She would listen to me and think,

-"There's a voice in there...

0:03:020:03:05

-"..should I do something?"

0:03:050:03:07

-There was an advert in the paper

-when I was nine years old.

0:03:070:03:10

-"Audition now,

-White Christmas in the WMC."

0:03:110:03:15

-It was an incredible experience.

0:03:150:03:18

-The experience inspired Jodi

-to sing in numerous shows.

0:03:180:03:22

-She then auditioned

-for Britain's Got Talent...

0:03:220:03:26

-..where she reached the live finals.

0:03:260:03:30

-When I was young,

-Mam and Dad weren't sure...

0:03:300:03:34

-..if this was the career for me.

0:03:340:03:36

-It's so competitive but I

-don't think they have a choice!

0:03:360:03:40

-I sing in the bath, the shower,

-upstairs, when I'm home from school.

0:03:400:03:45

-Mam now thinks, "OK, we have no

-choice, we just have to let her go."

0:03:450:03:49

-# Here we are as on olden days

0:03:500:03:55

-# Happy golden days

0:03:550:03:58

-# Of yore

0:03:580:04:01

-# Faithful friends

-who are dear to us

0:04:020:04:07

-# Gather near to us once more #

0:04:070:04:11

-You do remember.

0:04:120:04:14

-Working with Cefin

-has been a great experience.

0:04:140:04:17

-He lets us do what we think

-is right for the character.

0:04:180:04:24

-I really like that.

0:04:240:04:26

-# Eponine, who was that girl?

0:04:260:04:28

-# That's bourgeoisie

-two-a-penny thing #

0:04:280:04:30

-Eponine is a difficult part to play.

-There are many layers to her life.

0:04:310:04:36

-She has such strong emotions.

0:04:380:04:40

-She's like a tomboy

-but she wants Marius to love her.

0:04:400:04:44

-She wants to be more girly.

0:04:440:04:46

-There's a difficult part in

-A Little Fall of Rain.

0:04:460:04:50

-Marius and I must react

-and he has to hold me.

0:04:500:04:55

-I have trust issues.

0:04:550:04:57

-It took me a long time

-to trust him...

0:04:570:05:00

-..to flip me and catch me as I fall.

0:05:010:05:03

-I'm dying

-but I just want to trust him.

0:05:030:05:06

-I think we've got it down

-to a tee now. It'll be OK.

0:05:080:05:11

-My main concern is forgetting

-my lines.

0:05:120:05:14

-I hope that doesn't happen.

0:05:150:05:16

-We've helped each other

-to learn them.

0:05:170:05:19

-Eponine has a lot of lines

-and the beginning of On My Own.

0:05:190:05:23

-# Now I'm all along again,

-nowhere to turn, no-one to go to #

0:05:230:05:26

-It's been difficult. I hope

-it goes well, fingers crossed.

0:05:260:05:30

-It's time for the cast to see

-the set for the first time.

0:05:320:05:36

-Walking into the theatre

-and it's so huge.

0:05:380:05:42

-Looking at the set,

-it's so authentic and fantastic.

0:05:420:05:45

-It takes your breath away.

0:05:460:05:48

-The set is incredible, it's so big.

0:05:480:05:51

-I've only seen the stage

-from the auditorium.

0:05:520:05:55

-Walking on to a revolving

-stage is also a new experience...

0:05:550:06:00

-..for some.

0:06:000:06:01

-Quite a challenge.

0:06:030:06:05

-I'm going to fall!

0:06:050:06:07

-Next.

0:06:080:06:09

-I'm on the ground, in the air,

-everywhere at the same time.

0:06:320:06:36

-Playing the character

-is so physical.

0:06:360:06:40

-It's very tiring.

0:06:400:06:43

-Dafydd has to punch me in the face

-during that scene.

0:06:430:06:47

-We've practised that!

0:06:470:06:48

-# Not so loud, here's for you

0:06:490:06:52

-# God forgive us... #

0:06:520:06:54

-I hope he doesn't connect on stage!

0:06:540:06:57

-Osian and Gareth also fight.

0:07:000:07:03

-They take professional advice

-on the best technique to use.

0:07:030:07:07

-It's been really difficult.

0:07:070:07:09

-My muscles are aching.

0:07:090:07:11

-I'm jumping from one place

-to another.

0:07:120:07:15

-Keep your legs bent.

0:07:250:07:26

-That's better actually.

0:07:270:07:29

-I'm in almost every scene,

-I'm always singing.

0:07:290:07:32

-My priority is to look after

-my voice.

0:07:330:07:37

-Lovin' it.

0:07:390:07:40

-Relaxing, having a great time.

0:07:410:07:44

-I'm Gwen Edwards. I'm 18 years old.

0:07:440:07:47

-Nain texted me first to tell me

-about the Les Mis auditions.

0:07:470:07:53

-She cut the advert

-out of the newspaper.

0:07:530:07:57

-My friend tagged me on Facebook.

0:07:570:07:59

-I thought I'd give it a go.

0:08:000:08:03

-Please welcome Mr Cefin Roberts.

0:08:030:08:06

-When Cefin turned up

-to tell me I had the part...

0:08:080:08:12

-..it was the same day

-as my drama exam.

0:08:120:08:14

-I was thinking, "Why are the

-TV people filming a drama exam?"

0:08:150:08:19

-Then I saw Cefin

-and thought, "Oh, gosh."

0:08:190:08:24

-I went into a panic zone.

0:08:240:08:27

-"Oh, my gosh, oh, my gosh,

-we're about to find out."

0:08:270:08:30

-"You're in the chorus, you've had

-this part," and I was at the end.

0:08:310:08:35

-I was sitting there shaking.

0:08:350:08:37

-Gwen, we want you to play Fantine.

0:08:380:08:42

-Oh, my gosh,

-I was really, really happy.

0:08:450:08:48

-Everyone was like, "Oh, my gosh,

-Gwen, you've got the part."

0:08:480:08:53

-I didn't know what to do.

0:08:530:08:55

-It was such a massive buzz.

0:08:550:08:57

-Then I burst out crying

-in front of everyone.

0:08:570:09:01

-It was so embarrassing.

0:09:010:09:04

-We couldn't tell anyone but

-I wanted to phone Mam, Dad, Nain...

0:09:040:09:09

-..I wanted to tell all my teachers.

0:09:090:09:11

-We weren't allowed

-to tell anyone until seven.

0:09:110:09:15

-"Oh, my gosh, oh, my gosh, OK."

0:09:150:09:18

-Gwen's never had enough confidence

-to take that step forward.

0:09:200:09:25

-We always told her

-she had a special voice...

0:09:250:09:28

-..but she didn't know

-what she wanted to do next.

0:09:280:09:31

-Very little self-confidence.

0:09:310:09:33

-We know she can do it but she's

-always stayed in the shadows.

0:09:340:09:38

-The opportunity Les Mis has given

-her has helped her take that step.

0:09:390:09:44

-It's given me a major boost.

0:09:460:09:48

-It's made me think again

-about what I want to do.

0:09:490:09:53

-I want to go to university.

0:09:530:09:56

-Gwen didn't want to go

-to university.

0:09:560:09:58

-She wanted to leave the Sixth Form

-to look for work.

0:09:580:10:01

-Luckily, this email

-about Les Mis came through...

0:10:020:10:05

-..telling us about the performance

-down in Cardiff.

0:10:050:10:09

-"OK, I'll try, but I won't

-get a part," she replied.

0:10:100:10:13

-Because I got the part,

-it made me realise I can do it.

0:10:130:10:19

-She's in Cardiff now,

-enjoying every minute of it.

0:10:210:10:25

-She hasn't asked about us or said

-she wants to come home. That's good!

0:10:250:10:29

-They've made so many friends

-from across the country.

0:10:300:10:35

-We hear names

-we've never heard before.

0:10:350:10:38

-The phone rings,

-she receives a text.

0:10:380:10:42

-"It's so-and-so." "Who's that?"

-"Oh, she lives in South Wales."

0:10:420:10:46

-In the future,

-with a little bit of luck...

0:10:470:10:50

-..I will perform in the West End...

0:10:510:10:54

-..with my name up

-on the giant posters.

0:10:540:10:57

-Next to the name Fantine!

0:11:030:11:05

-As the opening night approaches...

0:11:070:11:09

-..and rehearsals continue

-morning, noon and night...

0:11:090:11:13

-..how are the voices holding up?

0:11:130:11:16

-A few days ago, it was iffy

-but it's coming back now.

0:11:160:11:19

-Honey and lemon...

0:11:200:11:21

-Honey and lemon...

-

-And plenty of sleep.

0:11:210:11:22

-There's not much of a voice left.

0:11:230:11:25

-I'm on antibiotics.

0:11:250:11:27

-Fingers crossed but I hope I'm OK.

0:11:270:11:30

-Get my sidies on!

0:11:340:11:35

-15-minute call, 15 minutes.

0:11:380:11:40

-Show time.

0:11:520:11:54

-Flowers everywhere.

0:11:570:11:59

-Greetings, cast. Backstage, please.

-Cast to backstage area.

0:12:040:12:07

-To all the cast

-and creative team of Les Mis...

0:12:120:12:15

-..at the Wales Millennium Centre,

-good luck.

0:12:150:12:18

-They've all signed it, from London.

0:12:190:12:21

-Give it everything you've got

-and you can't do anymore.

0:12:240:12:27

-Then you'll enjoy yourselves.

-See you in the bar later!

-when you're on stage.

0:14:050:14:08

-Technical things,

-are the lights coming on?

0:14:090:14:12

-You remember your lines

-on top of that.

0:14:120:14:15

-There's a lot to remember but I want

-The high notes come at the end

-of two particular songs.

0:15:340:15:39

-One is a tone and a half

-higher than the other.

0:15:410:15:44

-The first one poses no problems...

0:15:440:15:46

-..and the other one, they're

-two notes close to each other...

0:15:470:15:51

-..but I have to work harder.

0:15:510:15:53

-It's just a matter of practising

-and going for it.

0:15:530:15:56
