Players to Produce the Musical OLIVER!

The Middlebury Community Players are pleased to announce their production of Oliver! with music, book, and lyrics by Lionel Bart. Show dates are November 6-9 and November 13-16, 2014.

Director is Cathy Palmer with music direction by Susanne Peck and choreography by Kendra Gratton. Producer is Algy Layden with Mary Longey as Assistant Producer and Kristen Ginsburg as Assistant Director. Other Staff include Costume Designer Robin Huestis, Set Designer Adam Ginsburg and Stage Managers Meg Baker and Amanda Cheever.

Oliver! is an energetic and poignant show based on the Charles Dickens novel. It has singable, joyous, and memorable songs that everyone will find familiar. This will be a large production with approximately 35-45 adults and children.

The Players produced this show previously in 1975 and 1999, and we are hoping former cast members will audition or participate in some aspect of the show.

Children’s auditions:
Thursday, May 29 from 5-9pm, with callbacks Saturday, May 31 at 10am.

Adult auditions:
Monday-Tuesday, June 2-3 from 7-10pm, with callbacks as needed.

All auditions will take place at the Mary Hogan School in Middlebury.

Watch for more details to follow.
