No fewer than seven Mendicants were involved in Stanford's recent production of Les Misérables. Current and alumni members worked on the show both onstage and behind the scenes: Rob Biedry (Assistant Producer) and James Spicer (Vocal Director) on staff, and actors Brady Richter (Thenardier), Jeff Bennett (Courfeyrac), Eric Hallett (Montparnasse), Peter Kurzner (Prouvaire) and Alexander Ronneburg (Babet, Joly).
