Auditions – Oliver! – Backdoor Theatre
November 17, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
An event every day that begins at 6:00 pm, repeating until November 18, 2019
Auditions for Oliver! will be on Nov. 17th +18th at Backdoor Theatre! We are casting ages 7 and up for our first show of the 2020 season!
The streets of Victorian England comes 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.
As with ALL of our auditions, there is no previous acting experience required! All of those auditioning will be asked to bring a song of their choice, not longer than one minute, in the style of the show. We will have an accompanist and Bluetooth speaker for audio/karaoke track. We will do singing auditions, movement/dance audition, and followed by scene reading.
