Director and youth liaison officer Russell Theron said: "We shall be casting two Oliver's and two Artful Dodgers, along with children to play members of Fagin's gang. We also have lots of parts for adults too with the loveable Nancy and mischievous Fagin."

Children will need to be aged nine years and above, and auditions follow the week after the information evening.
