As you can tell from my signature, I was Mr. Bumble in a community theatre production in August :) we had about 230 people (kids and adults) and it was a very fun show. I was initially worried because I had no idea what kind of role an 18-year-old male could get in a show like this. But it turned out great, and I also got to be in Consider Yourself and Oom-Pah-Pah

I just got my letter in the mail, and I got the part of Nancy! :) So I'm excited. I wanted her part (and my family depended on it too, ah the relief!!) So yes. A year ago I would have never, NEVER thought to get a lead like this. This is my first ultra-lead part. ;) (besides the narrator in joseph, but I think this one's even bigger. :P ) Any advice would be wonderful! (I'm 16 and Bill Sykes is 6'5!!! It's a bit intimidating, haha)

Wayyy back in the day, when I was in 7th grade, I played the Artful Dodger. And I'm a girl so it was interesting but I absolutely loved it. I was obsessed with the musical before I auditioned and that was my favorite part, it was really like a dream role / once in a lifetime thing. But I'd absolutely love to play Nancy someday. She's one of the few leads that has the perfect vocal range for me, being a very alto-y alto ;)

I was just cast as Mrs. Sowerberry and Mrs. Bedwin. I was a little disappointed at first because I auditioned for Nancy, but once I heard the songs I was going to be singing, I perked up again. :)

Love hearing the audience laugh.

Played a strawberry seller/ensemble member a few years ago, but I'm doing the show again this summer. Just cast as the Artful Dodger! I'm a 17 year old girl so it should be a little bit interesting, but I'm small for my age so it's all good. =)

I was Charlotte Sowerberry, a Workhouse Boy, and one of Fagin's Boys a few years ago. Also had solos in Food and Be Back Soon. It was definitely one of my favorite shows to be in.

I've been in three different productions of Oliver over the years:

First one I was in I was Noah Claypoole
Second time I was a chorus member
Third time I was Mr. Sourberry and Dr. Grimwig

I played Widow Corney in my school's production... I'd wanted Nancy, but I did have a blast with this role :) ANNDDDDD it meant that i could double as the Strawberry Seller, getting the role a week before the show... :shock:

Although our Nancy... lets just say she was cast on appearance rather than voice.... ](*,)

We're currently in rehearsals for our local production of Oliver! I'm playing the Strawberry Seller and am also in the chorus. I'm very excited because this is my first named role.

I played Mr. Sowerberry. I got to do the show in a beautiful theatre, where all the UK tours stop. I think it holds 3000.
