The Cotswold Savoyards proudly present one of the most beloved British musicals, Oliver!, vividly bringing to life Dickens' timeless characters with its ever-popular story of the boy who asked for more. The sensational score is full of Lionel Bart's irresistible songs including Food Glorious Food, Consider Yourself, You've Got to Pick-a-Pocket or Two, I'd Do Anything, Oom Pah Pah, As Long As He Needs Me and many more.


Children's Auditions

We are looking for two teams of talented boys and girls to play the workhouse children, street urchins and members of Fagin's gang. We also need two Olivers and two Artful Dodgers who need to be played by boys.

A proposed age range for all children is 9-15, with a height restriction of approximately 5' tall. All children will need to be able to sing, dance and portray a believable character.

All audition pieces will be available at the workshop on 2nd December, where a short dance number will also be taught.
