David played the lead role of Jean Valjean in both of these productions, and Andy played most of the male characters, including Enjolras and Valjean, and still remains the only person to take on the job of being the shows Resident Director, and perform in it at the same time.

Also on stage is Katie Leeming, who joined Beyond the Barricade after playing the lead role of Eponine in the West End production of Les Misérables, and Rebecca Vere who played Cosette in Les Misérables.
