Cast of Oliver! Announced

Auditions for the 2014 summer musical of the Baytown Little Theater, produced at the Lee College Performing Arts Center for the fourth season, have been held, and we are proud to announce the fifty member cast and the twenty-plus backstage and production staff who will support the production.

Taking the classic role of one of Charles Dickens’ more memorable characters is BLT veteran actor Jim Wadzinski. He is reprising the role he introduced to the BLT stage in its 1988 production. Joining Wadzinski will be twelve-year-old Tanner Files in the role of Oliver and Hunter Hall playing the popular role of the Artful Dodger. Also heading the cast will be BLT veteran actress Maegan Carnew Megginson as Nancy. Opposite her in the role of the villainous Bill Sykes is Ryan Martin, who has been featured in many previous BLT productions. Mike Tuneberg and BLT newcomer Janet Harrelson will appear in the roles of Mr. Bumble and the Widow Corney, respectively.

Helming the production is Kim Martin, BLT veteran director and current Lee College theatre instructor. He is assisted by Mary Lou Martin as assistant director, Beth Darby as stage manager, and Derek Gutierrez as Technical Director, with music direction by Mike Tuneberg and choreography by Jenny Johnson. The orchestra will be under the direction of highly respected Baytown conductor Dennis Eichler.

Intensive rehearsals will continue through the summer, and performances are August 1, 2, 3, 8, 9, and 10. Tickets may be purchased on the Lee College PAC website at www.Lee.edu/PAC.
