I just discovered this BBC show on Youtube! It's alot of fun! Andrew Lloyd-Webber and Cameron Macintosh are searching for ONE Nancy and THREE Olivers for the show "Oliver!" on West End. There are 12 girls and 12 boys in the finals. Some of them are really good!

Here's the homepage:

If you search on Youtube, you'll find lots of videos!

Here are the boys performing "It's a hard-knock life"!

Oh my goodness, I want to put all of those little boys in my pocket, they are so cute! I wish we could watch the rest of the show to see who wins. I love listening to boy's voices before they change - so adorable. Thanks for sharing this with us.

You mentioned about watching the show. If you go on youtube, people have been putting the videos showing the results for each episode. So while you can't see the whole thing all in one shot, you can at least view the songs and soloists each week (plus no commercials!) Someone just posted week 5 results from this past Sunday. It's neat to see all the talent. (Plus I love the accents!)

This is how I watched "Britian's Got Talent" last June when someone posted about that little 6 year old girl who sang, "Somewhere Over the Rainbow."
Anyway, just thought you might be interested.

I love this show so much. You can download the full episodes and the results shows from http://www.uknova.com (using a torrent program). This is how I've watched How Do Solve a Problem Like Maria and Any Dream Will Do, too. The UK casting shows are so much better than the embarrassment that was the American You're the One that I Want. And, unlike the Annie 20th brouhaha, they seem to have been very successful in finding their stars. Although, I'm not really loving any of the potential Nancys this season, so I don't know if the success will continue. The Olivers are all adorable, though.

....loved the accents of the little boys, and they were all good singers ! The two Nancys were also great. I would have watched this show...better than the Grease search for Danny & Sandy (forget the name ! )
