Full series of the BBC show to cast the roles of "Nancy" and "Oliver"

 in a new West End production (opening December 2008) of "Oliver!"

Auditions took place in Belfast (24/1/08), Manchester (26-27/1/08),

London (1-3/2/08) & Glasgow (6/2/08)

The first two shows were pre-recorded and shown on the dates below.

From there most takes place on the Saturday - apart from some 'tasks' - most shown live

and the results (recorded later Saturday night) then shown "as live" on the Sunday.

After open auditions 42 Nancy's went to Nancy School to impress the judges

made up of Lord Andrew Lloyd-Weber, and 'Oliver!' producer Sir Cameron Mackintosh

plus a panel of made up of West End performers / TV personalities.

12 Nancy's were then picked to go through to the live shows, where, after a public vote, 

ALW was given the chance to save one of the two who received the lowest number of votes.

Until the final when the last two will compete against each other for the role.

The 'Oliver's' however, do not have a public vote but by the judges in pre-recorded clips, where

one is selected in the first eight live shows, to go through. They then all perform together live.

After that their number will be eventually cut to the final three who will rotate the role on stage.
