Cast List for Oliver!

December 17, 2011

A huge thank you to everyone who auditioned for Oliver! 

There are several additional speaking roles that will be cast from the ensemble and workhouse boys when we begin rehearsals.

All rehearsals and performances will take place at Chaska High School.

Rehearsals begin with an All-Cast Meeting on Monday, January 16, 2012, at 6:30 p.m. followed by vocal and dance rehearsals for everyone.  Generally, rehearsals will run Monday through Friday 6:30 – 9:00.  We will make every effort to schedule a minimal number of rehearsals for the kids on Wednesdays.

We hope to have copies of scripts sent out to the principals within the next two weeks.

We are looking forward to seeing all of you on January 16.  If you have any questions, feel free to contact us.
