Oliver! – 2018 Musical

It’s time for a BIG announcement of a MASSIVE show for 2018 and some fun auditions…

The Seagull Theatre, in association with the Marina Theatre, are delighted to announce their first team up for the COMMUNITY production of Lionel Bart’s much-loved musical ‘OLIVER’

Reuniting the creative team behind last year’s smash success ‘Little Shop Of Horrors’, ‘OLIVER’ promises to be spectacular and full of energy as well as all your favourite songs, played by a live orchestra including members from the London’s Royal College of Music.

The production is open to ANYONE who would wish to audition – it’s a community production that will also raise funds for the Seagull and the Marina.

We want to include cast and crew members from all groups and schools in the area as well as people who may have always wanted to be involved onstage or offstage but never had the chance or courage. We will be auditioning in early April and the show will run in AUGUST at the Marina Theatre (so the kids involved won’t be missing any school!)

We would love for you to come and find out more at one of the information evenings (info below)

We will be auditioning for all roles (children, leading roles and company) in April, so bring your best cockney accent and come and join Oliver, Dodger, Fagan and the gang as well as Nancy, Bill, Bulls-eye and the crew. We promise It’s a fine life…

It's been a long road since the Seagull Theatre's closure, prompting an impassioned response from the public. A campaign was begun in earnest to save the Seagull Theatre, known as the SOS (Save Our Seagull) campaign. Although the journey's not over yet, it's worth remembering how it all began.
