by: SFAS' FACEBOOK PAGE - Here's what the cast (and live orchestra) look like during a dress rehearsal for 'Les Miserables' set for Friday, Saturday and Sunday night at Stella Olsen Park. All three nights are officially sold out.

Meanwhile, here's the rundown on "Les Mis":

• Musical score is 500 pages long.

• As of June, there were 35 cast members in the Sherwood production, taking on 125 roles.

• A total of 115 applications were received for parts in the musical.

• 25 musicians are in the orchestra.

• Sherwood received the last rights to perform “Les Miserables” before it returns to the Broadway stage. That means no other off-Broadway performances can be staged until it closes in New York, which could be as long as three years, folks.

Meanwhile, if you are going, theater-goers are asked to bring cans of food to benefit Sherwood’s Helping Hands food bank.
