5-10 and 12-16 August
There is no other city in the UK where you can be part of something quite like this.
That’s the reality for Lincoln residents who all have the opportunity to play a part in the biggest project of its kind in the country, which will take place in one of the world’s most iconic buildings.
Following the sell-out performances of previous years including Jesus Christ Superstar and Jekyll and Hyde, the Starring Lincoln Theatre Company needs you get involved in their new production of Oliver! At Lincoln Cathedral.
Over 200 residents took part in last years’ performance of Jekyll and Hyde and Ben Poole, director of Oliver!, is wanting your help to make this year bigger and better: “I have to keep reminding myself of how unique and special this is, there’s nothing of its kind in the UK, indeed there’s no other city you could live in that would offer you this opportunity. Why would you want to miss out on being part of something truly amazing?
“Oliver! Will be 100% driven by the local community, and when it’s something of this magnitude, rest assured, if you want to get involved, you’re in!
“People need to know there are many different types of opportunities, there are no barriers to participation, whether you’re an actor, musician, technician, you want to help backstage or perhaps with marketing… whatever it might be, come and see us.”
Everyone welcome, no audition necessary unless you’d like to try for a featured role. Our ensemble have lots of fun if you want to blend in a bit more! We will be looking for lots of talented children, boys and girls, to take part (not to train as pick-pockets!) so come along!
