LHK Youth Theatre promised it would Be Back Soon with another amazing musical and true to its word, the company will be proudly presenting Oliver! at The Epstein Theatre in November 2016.

So if you can sing, dance, act and feel I’d Do Anything to star in a musical then don’t miss the auditions for this fabulous heart-warming show on Sunday, 6th March at 12noon.

The auditions will be held at The Epstein Theatre on Hanover Street where the team at LHK Youth Theatre will be on the lookout for young talented performers aged between 7 and 18.

Open to both boys and girls, the youngsters must be able to sing, dance and act. The producers are particularly looking for strong vocalists to cast in some of the singing roles in Oliver.

Hopefuls do not need to prepare an audition piece as the production team will put them through their paces, but don’t worry – it won’t be too ‘gruelling’. It’s A Fine Life at LHK Productions, which prides itself on nurturing talented performers in the region and giving them the foundations for a fabulous career in performing arts.

As well as getting the chance to star in a great show, performance will gain invaluable stage experience working with LHK Youth Theatre, one of the region’s leading youth arts organisations.

Established by Lee Kelly, managing director of LHK Productions, 10 years ago, the Youth Theatre has developed the talent of thousands of young people over the past decade and previous members have gone on to become TV stars, West End performers and entertain on cruise ships worldwide!

Lee said: “Each year we reach out across the region to discover exceptional new talent. Our training is based on the basic principal that the best place for young people to learn about the performing arts is on stage in front of a live audience.

“We provide a platform for young talent to be showcased on a regional, national and international stage in iconic theatres throughout the UK and beyond.”

Following the auditions, Lee will be Reviewing the Situation and choosing only the very best for his forthcoming production of Oliver! which promises to be his most exciting musical yet.

Oliver! boasts stunning scenery, dazzling dance routines and marvellous musical numbers, featuring all the famous songs including Food Glorious Food, Where is Love? Pick a Pocket or Two, Who Will Buy? And one thing’s for sure, the show will have plenty of Oom-Pah-Pah!

The musical tells the story of the orphan Oliver Twist, who starts his life in a workhouse and is then sold into an apprenticeship with an undertaker. He escapes from there and travels to London where he meets the Artful Dodger, and becomes a member of a gang of juvenile pickpockets, which is led by the elderly criminal Fagin.

The auditions are open to all levels from beginners to advanced – so whether you are an experience performer, or just fancy having a go, then come along to the auditions which will be held at The Epstein Theatre on Sunday, 6th March at 12noon.
