Auditions are soon open for the adult cast of Masquerade Malta’s upcoming production of Oliver!, which is set for performances in April 2024 at the Mediterranean Conference Centre in Valletta.

Those with strong singing, acting and dance skills can audition between July 30 and August 2 for any of the adult lead and ensemble roles in the musical’s large cast, including Nancy, Bill Sikes, Mr Bumble, Widow Corney, Bet and Mr Brownlow. Meanwhile, Masquerade will look for committed and enthusiastic young people to join the company of this musical theatre masterpiece in the roles of Oliver, the Artful Dodgerand the children’s ensemble in further auditions to be held in September.

The full selected cast will commence rehearsals in early January 2024 at M Space in Msida. Winning multiple Tony Awards and with an Academy Award-winning film adaptation, Oliver! has captured the imagination of audiences for generations. Lionel Bart’s famous score is packed full of songs everyone knows and loves, including Food Glorious Food, Consider Yourself, I’d Do Anything, Who Will Buy?, Where is Love? and Oom-Pah-Pah.

Equally timeless, the musical’s coming-of-age story – based on the Charles Dickens novel, Oliver Twist – follows a young, orphaned boy who must navigate Victorian London’s seedy underworld in his search for love.

“Consider yourself invited to take part in our production of Oliver!” says Masquerade Malta artistic director, Anthony Bezzina. “Oliver! is a brilliant show for all the family – and a great opportunity for both experienced and aspiring musical theatre performers to join the cast of one of the greatest and most beloved family musicals of all time.”
