The Idaho Shakespeare Festival is looking to fill the roles of young Cosette (age 7-10) and Gavroche (8-12) in “Les Miserables,” which will play in repertory July 4 to Aug. 31. Rehearsals start June 10.

Auditions also will be held for William Page (8-12) in “The Merry Wives of Windsor," which rehearses in July and runs through August. Kids should prepare a short classical monologue.

Auditions will be held May 10, beginning at 10 a.m. To set up an appointment send an email to company manager Kiely Prouty at or call 429-9908, ext. 204.

Kids will receive a $500 stipend for their work.
