Local fourth grader lands role in Les Mis

Catherine's mother, Amy Wise-Coble, said watching the audition was a nerve-racking experience.

"Catherine does not practice in front of anyone at home, so I had no idea what to expect," Amy told The Sun. "I knew her performance at Christmas in the children's program at Good News was beautiful, so I knew she had it in her. But I was worried she would be too nervous. And, neither one of us had ever been to any type of audition."

Dayna views the audition as a time to show what Catherine has learned and the progress she has made.

"I love to try and help Catherine find times to use the gift God has given her," Dayna said. "The timing of the audition was perfect … God's timing."


Northwest Florida State College presents Les Misérables July 17-20 and 25-27 at the college’s Mattie Kelly Arts Center. Tickets are $25/adults and $20/youth ages 18 and younger and may be purchased in-person, by phone at 729-6000 or at www.mattiekellyartscenter.org.
