Packemin Productions and Riverside Theatres present
A new production of Boublil and Schönberg’s
A musical by Alain Boublil and Claude-Michel Schönberg
Based on a novel by Victor Hugo

Be transported to nineteenth century France as the team behind hit productions of Mamma Mia!, Jesus Christ Superstar, Shrek, Wicked, Legally Blonde and The Phantom of the Opera bring one of the world’s most iconic musicals – the multi-award-winning classic, Les Misérables to the stage in February 2020.

Based on Victor Hugo’s novel, Les Misérables is a poignant, emotional story that follows ex-convict Jean Valjean’s lifelong struggle for redemption after being imprisoned for stealing a loaf of bread. Once released he remains an outcast of society and in a stroke of desperation breaks his parole to gain his freedom. Police inspector Javert vows to hunt him down and bring Valjean to justice.

Set amidst the political upheaval of a developing France, accompanied by a heart-wrenching score, including some of the most well-known musical theatre hits such as I Dreamed a Dream, On My Own, Stars, Bring Him Home and One Day More, Les Misérables is a must-see classic that will stay with you for years to come.

Suitable for ages 13+ (Parental guidance is recommended)

Daniel’s passion for singing began at age 9, when he was a boy soprano who would sing with his Grandmother as his piano accompaniment. In the many years since, Daniel has gained a wealth of performance experience.

Since beginning his professional career, Daniel has been in demand as a performer for numerous large sporting events, including Rugby Union’s Bledisloe Cup and International Test Series games, International One-Day Cricket finals, A-League Football finals, and the Australian Swimming Championships.

In 2009, he performed in the Australian Premiere of Jerry Springer – The Opera at the Sydney Opera. In 2012, Daniel joined the internationally acclaimed vocal group The Ten Tenors and performed in theatres around Germany, America, Australia, and Europe as part of The Ten Tenors’ Double Platinum tour.

Daniel was also guest singer for the arrival of Pope Benedict at Barangaroo in 2008, has been a guest performer at the annual Merry Makers concert, and was a finalist for both The Rob Guest Endowment and The Joan Sutherland Scholarship. He has taught at, and is a graduate of, the Australian Institute of Music.

His theatre roles include Terry in Side Show at the Hayes Theatre Sydney and from 2014 – 2016 he toured in the international production of Les Misérables covering the role of Jean Valjean and playing it over 100 times.

Last year, Daniel played the role of Jean Valjean to rave reviews in Christchurch, New Zealand and more recently toured with the Ten Tenors throughout the USA.


Rob McDougall has established himself as a respected actor, singer and conductor throughout Australia. As a vocalist he has toured the country with Newcastle big bad group Ultra Swing Lounge. Rob has conducted multiple musicals, including Beauty and the Beast, The Mystery of Edwin Drood and Little Shop of Horrors.

Rob is the producer and musical director of Epiphanies, a musical theatre orchestral gala concert fundraising for mental health and he was a finalist of the  Rob Guest Endowment finalist, receiving the Melbourne East End Theatre District prize.

Rob joined the Australian tour of Les Miserables in 2013, performing as Legles/Bishop Cover/Javert Cover and was subsequently cast as the Bishop for the Brisbane season.

Rob’s first performance as Javert in Melbourne 2014 made him one of the youngest in the world to ever play the role. He has since gone on to play Mephisto in Faust, and The Proprietor in the Hayes celebrated Opera House season of Assassins.

Rob is thrilled to joining this production of Les Miserables!
