Youth Group Open Auditions – Oliver Twist

Youth Group Open Auditions - Oliver Twist

I am holding open auditions for the youth group play ‘Oliver Twist’, to be performed 8th-10th November this year. Please note this is a play, NOT the musical!

There will be a read-through of the script on Sunday 20th May 6:30-8pm, where we will get to know the play and I will answer any questions/hand out audition pieces. The audition will be on Sunday 10th June 6:30-8:30pm. Both of these will take place in the theatre bar, which is accessible through the back gate of the Playhouse Whitstable.

The read-through is not mandatory – if you cannot attend this but would like to audition then please contact me.

I would encourage parents to drop off and pick up, as space can be limited in the bar area. It can be nerve-racking meeting new people and auditioning on the same day, so feel free to come in and meet me from 6pm on either date, as the doors will be open from then!

Notes – please read

  • Successful auditionees will be required to pay the £5 membership to the Lindley Players, and will have a place in the youth group outside of play rehearsals (should you wish to have one!).
  • The youth group is volunteer led – please bear this in mind during communications – and we stick to a cast size with which we feel comfortable. If you or your child is not successful this time, you may of course remain on the waiting list.
  • All youth group leaders and helpers have been DBS checked and/or hold chaperone licences.
  • Communication is through email and/or a facebook group, in the interest of audit trails. Parents/Guardians may join the facebook group if they wish.
  • All cast members must be 13-18 years old (inclusively) at the time of performance.
  • Rehearsals will be Sunday evenings 6-9pm starting in June, with a break over summer. There will be some weekday rehearsals scattered about in the fortnight leading up to the show.
  • Please contact Lucie on for more information
