Kids' Audition for "Oliver!" at Wilson HS on Tuesday

We saw this casting call for short middle-schoolers to be in the orphans ensemble of Wilson High School's fall production of "Oliver!" and we thought we'd pass it along:

Woodrow Wilson High School is looking for children to play orphans in the opening scene of "Oliver!," this year's Wilson fall musical. "Oliver!" will celebrate the opening of Wilson's beautiful new theater!

We are looking for DC elementary and middle school boys and girls, 5th grade and up, who are 4"11' and under, can sing soprano, and can follow simple choreography. The Orphan Ensemble will be in the first
scene of the show only.

Rehearsals will be scheduled at the following times:

Music Rehearsals - September 30 & October 6 from 3:45-5:00 pm
Staging and Dance Rehearsal- October 15 from 1:30-5:00 pm
