We are proud to announce that our show for 2017 will be Lionel Bart’s OLIVER! which will be on stage at the Maltings in Berwick from 3rd to 7th May 2017 (including a Saturday and a Sunday matinee).
OLIVER! is a well-known family musical with great parts for children and adults. Bart’s musical adaptation of Charles Dickens’s classic novel Oliver Twist tells the story of young orphan Oliver as he travels through the dark underbelly of London society. The musical score features many famous numbers including Consider Yourself, Food Glorious Food, As Long As He Needs Me and It’s A Fine Life.
If you are interested in being part of the team in any way the Executive Committee would like to hear from you. If you would like any further information regarding the positions please get in touch with myself or our acting Secretary Laura Catterall, and we will gladly give you more of an insight as to what is expected.
The production team consists of: Director; Musical Director; Choreographer; other roles include Accompanists; Stage Manager/Stage Crew; Properties; Wardrobe; Make-up; Front of House and many more supporting roles.
We would like to have a Director in place as soon as possible, so if you are interested in directing please contact me giving some idea of how you see the show being staged and your role in the production. If potential directors would like to see a copy of the libretto/vocal book let me know and we can arrange this.
Please contact me via the Opera’s email, website or Facebook page to express your interest in any of these roles by Friday 3rd June 2016. Of course, the committee must reserve the right to approach potential post-fillers if no-one suitable puts their name forward. I look forward to hearing from you.
