‘Oliver!’ by Lionel Bart is a famous, long-running play based on the novel ‘Oliver Twist’ by Charles Dickens. Full of wonderful songs, a good cast mix of adults and children, and set in the workhouses, inns and slums of Victorian London, Oliver! is going to be a lot of hard work, but a lot of fun too. A play where we can truly get our hands dirty!
We are happy to announce the date for auditions, and are also seeking production crew to work behind the scenes. Please note that this is an amateur production, so all roles are voluntary.
AUDITIONS: SUNDAY 19th MARCH
Venue: The Events Room at The Turner Centre

If you are interested in auditioning for a part in Oliver!, please first check that you will be available for rehearsals and for the performance dates. While some cast will not be required to attend all rehearsals, we need a solid commitment.
If you are a Junior, make sure you have the support of your parent/guardian, a means of transportation, and that the rehearsals do not clash with other activities you have committed to.
