The Raven Players theater troupe, based at the Raven Theater in Healdsburg, has never lacked ambition, going after the rights to big Broadway shows that can be difficult for community theaters to get — “Rent” in 2010, “Chicago” in 2011.

So the latest news from the plucky little company makes perfect sense.

“We are the first North Bay community theater to be granted the licensing to the full-length version of Les Misérables,” Raven Players president John DeGaetano announced this week.

The troupe’s 2013-2014 season, opening next fall,  also includes:

— Tennessee Williams’ “A Streetcar Named Desire,” winner of  the Pulitzer Prize for Drama in 1948.

— “Noises Off,” the immensely popular and extremely fast-paced comedy about a theater company’s antics both onstage and off.

— “Monique,’ a suspenseful mystery based on the film classic “Diabolique.”

— “Don’t Drink the Water,” Woody Allen farce’s focus about an American tourist family accidentally caught up in international intrigue.
