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.

It’s the classic story.  Boy meets girl.  Boy falls in love.  Girl is not who she claims.  Girl disappears leaving only a small clue.  Boy turns the entire kingdom upside-down searching for his lost love.   Then add in Girl lives under the thumb of a less-than-loving step family, talks to animals, but also has an unconventional Godmother who has more than a small dose of magic up her sleeve.  What could possibly go wrong?

2020 Camps and Classes Cancelled at Royal Theatre Company

RTC_logoDear Students and Families,

We hope this message finds you healthy and well. These are certainly strange times that we are living in and navigating through. Unfortunately, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the ROYAL Theatre Company Board of Directors has come to the very difficult decision to cancel our summer camps and fall classes for the remainder of 2020. We are very sad to have to make this decision, but we know this is the right decision to make to preserve the integrity of the experiences that we want students to gain from our classes and camps.

Please don’t worry, we are NOT going away. We are using this time to assess and redesign our class curriculum for new and exciting growth opportunities. ROYAL Theatre Company will continue to share updates and information about future opportunities to get involved with us via our social media channels. Be sure to like us so you get the most up-to-date news!
