OLIVER DUO: The two boys who are sharing the role of Oliver in the North Canterbury Musical Society production. Bob Gaudin, 10, left, and Logan McAllister,
12, on a break during rehearsals.
THE TWO boys cast to share the
lead role in the North Canterbury
Musical Society's production of
Oliver! have quite different
techniques for dealing with their
Admitting he is freaked out''
about opening night, 10-year-old
Bob Gaudin, from Christchurch,
says he will focus on the end of
I'm just going to think that
mum's going to give me a big hug
when it's all over.''
Meanwhile, 12-year-old Logan
McAllister from Ohoka says he is
not too nervous.
I just kind of like focus on some
spot at the back of the audience.
When I'm singing and stuff, I
just look out, and most of the
time I have other stuff to do when
Both Olivers have had years of
singing and acting experience, but
say this role will be a big step up.
I've done quite a lot of plays
with the Harlequin Players in
Christchurch. I'm mostly animals
-- which is not much of a part,''
With a preference for singing
over acting, he says his favourite
song in the production is Where
I sing that when I've just been
taken to the undertakers -- I've
been sold for three pounds and
generally not happy.''
Bob says he can already see a
future for himself in the perform-
Logan has his sights set on the
film industry and has clearly been
impressed by Oliver! director,
He says getting some of the
high notes in some of the songs
has been challenging, but he has
worked hard to master them.
It's kind of like because I'm a
bit older than Bob, he can go
higher than me, but I've been
practicing with the musical direc-
tor and I'm pretty sure I've got it
nailed now. It's all good.''
Remembering his lines is actu-
ally the easiest part of the role,
The lines are the easiest part,
because Oliver as a character
doesn't have a lot of lines to say --
he's just some scared little child
and a lot is going on around him.''
His favourite part was the feel-
good classic, Consider Yourself.
Juggling the demands of
rehearsals and schoolwork had
been helped by having very sup-
portive teachers for both boys, but
sleep deprivation had been chal-
lenging, Bob said.
Another challenge was the phy-
sicality of the show.
I get picked up a lot and it
hurts the way people pick me up
sometimes. I'm just flung over
Bill Sykes' shoulder when he
comes in, and he just roughly
plonks me down.''
Both boys said the social nature
of the production and the support-
ive cast and crew were highlights
of the experience.
Bob, who didn't know any of the
other actors before the rehearsals
began, said he had made many
good friends, including Logan.
The NCMS season of Oliver!
opens on May 2, at Rangiora High
auditorium. Tickets are available
from John Harrington Showcase
Jewellers, Rangiora, or via the
NCMS website: ncms.co.nz.
