Auditions for Oliver! in St Albans

YOUTH musical theatre company RARE Productions are holding auditions for their next show at the Alban Arena next week.

They are putting on Oliver! and the first audition will be next Tuesday, October 2, at Wheatfields Junior School.

Eight to 12 year olds are invited to audition from 6pm to 7pm and 13 to 21 year olds from 7pm to 8pm.

The second audition will be at the Alban Arena next Sunday, October 7, with eight to 12 year olds auditioning from 10am to 11.30am and the older performers from 11.30am to 12.30pm.

Prospective cast members need only attend one audition which will be for main cast members and ensemble.

Oliver is RARE’s second major show at the Alban Arena and follows the success of Annie earlier this year.

Andrew Burton, founding partner of London Colney-based RARE Productions, said: “ We had close to 250 young people at our auditions for Annie and I fully expect that we’ll see at least that number again.
