ARDMORE, OK-- The Little Theatre in Ardmore makes history as they become the first community theatre in the state to take on the popular musical "Les Miserables."

Angelic voices and passion is what audience members can expect from a local community theaters performance of musical "Les Miserables."

It's the first time any community theatre in the state of Oklahoma has taken on the production.

Director Dell McLain said hundreds of people were lined up Thursday night to see the big performance and they expect and even bigger crowd Friday night.
     
 McLain said the rights to the show were released earlier this year, giving the theatre a chance to take on the challenge of the popular musical

"The shows size and scope has been prohibited in the past, but Ardmore Little Theatre swung for the fences this summer," said McLain.

The show attracted cast members from all over the state and even some from Texas.

Bridget Goldman commuted all the way from Plano to audition and when she got the part, she said she was thrilled.

 "It's been wonderful, this show is actually one of my favorites, I've seen it 36 times since I was 8 years old and this actual role has been a dream of mine since I was 8 years old," said Goldman.

McLain said the funds to put on the production are coming from a grant, he said funds from ticket sales will go towards future productions at the theatre.

Since opening night on Thursday, McLain said so far the show has been a success.

"You love it when you see an audience sort of breathe with the actors on stage and there were plenty of cheers and a few sniffles so you now you're getting them, you know you're doing great," said McLain.

Tickets to the show are $15 and the performances will go on through next week
