Audition Pieces (Script and Music)

We’re really looking forward to seeing you at the Oliver Auditions. It’s such a popular show with some fantastic opportunities for actors, singers and dancers.

If you’d like to learn more about the characters come along to the talk-up and; if you get the opportunity, check out these resources:

  • Oliver Twist by Charles Dickens, for the original tale.

  • Oliver Twist – York Notes, for a summary of the story and an insight into the background, characters, social history and themes.

  • David Lean’s Oliver DVD – a brilliantly atmospheric production made in 1948

  • Oliver! – the classic 1960’s musical

Please note: to be involved in Oliver you need to be at least 8 years old on 1 July 2018
