Does anyone know if the part of the Artful Dodger has already been cast? Or will one of the runner-up's for Oliver play him?

Dodger will have to be played by one lad, an older lad probably about 16 (I think), but if i remember rightly from the last production, it will be only one boy.  But they're going to need him to be older to so he can lead Oliver along.

I've heard they are casting 3 child Dodgers under 5 foot when IDA is over.  In the novel Dodger is the same size as Oliver and in the Sam Mendes production the Dodgers were small.

Can anyone tell me where I can find out about this, or who I should contact? Or even provide a link or email address etc?

I don't think one of the Oliver boys will get the part of Dodger but I think that both Harry and Jordan would both easily suit the part (particulary Harry who I think is very good)
