Can I play an immoral character in the theater?

I have the opportunity to audition for the musical* Les Miserables * and I would like to audition specifically for the part of Thenadier. If you do not know the play, Thenadier is a low-life petty criminal. The only problem is, in a song he sings, he uses the Lord’s name in vane a couple of times, and there are a couple instances of him using the Lord’s name in vain outside of that. Would it be wrong for me, a Catholic, to play him in this production, and included these problems? He isn’t portrayed in a good light, but he isn’t specifically condemned for his moral ambiguity.

Thank you very much
