Post Does Charlotte sing?
I just got cast as Charlotte and from what I've seen about the character, i can't WAIT to play her. But does she sing? I'll be a bit sad if she doesn't :/ In all of your productions, what did the director have her do? Was she in any of the ensemble numbers?

ALSOOO: Any tips on how to play her? I want to play her comedically, I'm a comedian and i think this role can go a long way to show off my acting skills. (is comedically even a word? Oh well.)

I did the show years ago, so I may not be the best expert. If I remember correctly, Charlotte's only scenes are in the first act when Oliver is bought by the Sowerberrys. She is their daughter(?), and has a bit of a thing for Noah Claypoole. It's a funny part, cause her and Noah both kind of mock Oliver. Sadly, she doesn't sing much, if at all.

When I did it, our Charlotte was also a member of the ensemble, so she got to do a few of the others numbers.

Hope this helps.

Charlotte is in one scene where she and Noah Claypole tease Oliver. She has no solo singing, however you should be part of the ensemble, and the company numbers that come with that responsibility: "Consider Yourself", "Who Will Buy?", etc.

*hoping this isn't necroposting*

I played Charlotte a few years back, and although Charlotte has no scripted singing, I was incorporated with a few solo lines into "That's Your Funeral". I've seen this done in other productions also :)

Congrats!
