Meet A Few Cast Members of Oliver

by Amanda and Amita

The Middle School is beginning work on our upcoming production of Oliver and the lead cast was recently accounced. We asked a few of the students to tell us about their roles and why they chose to be part of our Middle School musical.

Alexander Mabberley (Mr. Bumble)

Why did you audition?
Because I thought it would be fun.

What do you like about the character you’re playing?
He is respectable.

Have you ever performed on a stage before?
In the Grade 5 production of There’s a Monster in My Closet, I was also a lead role.

Amy (Nancy)

What do you like about your character?
I like how my character acts appears to be very strong but on the inside she is in love with someone who puts her life in danger. Her life isn’t what she expects and she thinks that there is more for her but instead she chooses to love, which gives me the chance to act both sides of the story. She has great songs as well as speaking lines and it’s honestly an honour to play her. 🙂

Have you ever performed on a stage before?
I have a few times now, but all through SMUS. When I was in Grade 6, I performed in The King of Elfland’s Daughter and in Grade 5, I performed in the Magic Flute.

Ethan (Mr. Sowerberry)

1. Why did you audition?
I auditioned because I wanted to get involved in the play and more involved in the school.

2. What do you like about the character you’re playing?
I like that he is an undertaker and pale.

3.Have you ever performed on a stage before?
Yes, I had a small role in the Junior School production.

Trevor (Artful Dodger)

What do you like about the character you’re playing?
I will be playing the role of the Artful Dodger in the school’s upcoming performance of Oliver. I think that one of the things I really like about my charecter is just how he is always up beat and even when things get serious he always tries to look on the bright side of things. I also enjoy the mischevious involving him.

Have you ever performed on a stage before?
I was involved in the opera at the Junior School, The Magic Flute, and I was also involved in the schools musical in Grade 6, The King of Elfland’s Daughter. However, I didn’t have roles in either of these, so I am really looking forward to Oliver this year.
