WHERE?           THE BRITISH SCHOOL
 
 VIA DELLA STAZIONE VECCHIA 11a, OSTIA
 
WHAT TIME?     FROM 3pm (book your slot/more info at

Each person auditioning will be asked to sing a song of their own choice (but preferably one from the show) and do some simple movement and read a few lines
from the script (provided at the audition). Therefore please bring suitable clothing and shoes for movement, and a backing track if you don't want to sing
a cappella.
 
We are looking for the following characters:
 
OLIVER: A young boy (aged 10-12), more spirited than the others in the workhouse, also more trusting and innocent. No cockney accent required. Solo and
chorus singing and movement.
 
MR. BUMBLE: A portly man, Bumble fancies himself a man of some great importance and distinction. Northern English or cockney accent. Solo singing (Baritone/Tenor)
and chorus singing and movement.
 
MRS.CORBY/BUMBLE: A hard woman and a hopeless flirt. Northern English or cockney accent. Chorus singing and movement.
 
THE ARTFUL DODGER/JACK DAWKINS: A 12 to 14 year old slick and smooth London pickpocket, dirty but fed, he is the "artiste," Fagin's best boy. Cockney accent.
Solo and chorus singing and movement.
 
FAGIN: A mean Jewish man whose even temper can change in an instant to flashes of near madness. He seems to care for his boys, but one can never be too
sure about him.  Exaggerated Jewish accent. Sings solo and with boys.
 
NANCY: A "professional" girl aged from 20 to 40 who is helplessly in love with a man who could easily kill her. She is always on her guard, careful and
in most ways, smart. Cockney accent. Mezzo-Soprano solo, chorus singing and movement.
 
BET: Nancy's best friend, in her teens. Much smarter about life than Nancy, but unwilling to force her opinions on her friend. Cockney accent. Chorus singing
and movement.
 
BILL SYKES: Nancy's man and as mean as there is. Rarely lowers his guard or shows even the slightest kindness. Bill is a frightened man who trusts no-one.
No singing or dancing.
 
MR. BROWNLOW: Oliver's last living relative, a man of substance and high personal ideals. No singing or dancing.
 
MR BROWNLOW's HOUSEKEEPER: Kindly, motherly figure who instantly believes in and looks after Oliver. Chorus singing and movement.
