CORAL GABLES - Performers are invited to audition on Saturday November 23rd for OLIVER!, which will open at Area Stage Company next March. ASC is casting actors/singers for all principal and ensemble roles. Roles are available for children, teens and adults.
The streets of Victorian England come to life as Oliver, a malnourished orphan in a workhouse, becomes the neglected apprentice of an undertaker. Oliver escapes to London and finds acceptance amongst a group of petty thieves and pickpockets led by the elderly Fagin. When Oliver is captured for a theft that he did not commit, the benevolent victim, Mr. Brownlow takes him in. Fearing the safety of his hideout, Fagin employs the sinister Bill Sikes and the sympathetic Nancy to kidnap him back, threatening Oliver’s chances of discovering the true love of a family. OLIVER! book, and lyrics are by Lionel Bart, based on Charles Dickens' "Oliver Twist."
Prepare a one-minute monologue and 16 bars of a musical theatre song. Bring the sheet music of your chosen song in the right key. Check-in early on Saturday to sign up and actors will be called in for their audition in the order they signed up. Bring your calendar of conflicts.
