Auditions were held the first part of August, and practices started that week. The auditions included preparing and singing a solo, learning a dance at auditions and performing it, and then singing a song that Mrs. Orr picked from the musical.
If you come to the musical, be sure and watch for this guy:
Yes, Lyle got the part of Artful Dodger. He even has two solos!! Way to go, Lyle!!!
