Auditions Announced for OLIVER! at Royal Theatre Company

RTC_logoThe ROYAL Theatre Company is excited to announce that we will hold auditions on August 15th & August 16th for OLIVER!

About the Musical:
The streets of Victorian England come to life in Oliver, the timeless, award-winning musical based on Charles Dicken’s Oliver Twist.  Oliver begins his struggle-filled life as a malnourished workhouse orphan who becomes the neglected apprentice of a slimy undertaker and his selfish, controlling wife.  Eventually he escapes to London and finds acceptance amongst a gang of petty thieves and pickpockets led by the elderly Fagin.

When Oliver is arrested for a theft that he did not commit, the victim, Mr. Brownlow, shows mercy – which Oliver has never seen, and takes him in. Unfortunately, Fagin fears for the safety of his criminal hideout and employs the sinister Bill Sikes and the sympathetic Nancy to kidnap Oliver and bring him back.  The smothering life of crime once again threatens Oliver’s chances of ever fully escaping the harsh streets and discovering the true love of a family.
