Chester has good voice but doesnt relate to the audience,
I dont rate Arthur's voice,
Johnny has stage prescence,
Laurence - No opinion formed
Kwayedxe - Good voice but too big
Alex - Good voice but too big
Gwion - No opinion formed
Well I sort of agree although I think Harry is a good enough actor to tone down and play Oliver well.
Apart from him, and Kwayedza, who has star quality, it's just a handful of averagely talented boys most of whom will be very much on the tall side by the time the show opens in January.
Alex produces his voice well but he seems so mature and wise I'm not sure he's right for the part. Chester and Laurence don't quite seem physically at ease on stage to me. Jonny looks right but I really think he needs some work on his voice production and phrasing. Gwion seems to have made an impression and is the only one who is short enough to be convincing except for Arthur whose voice rules him out. I am sure when they open this up to Stage School kids in the auditions for the Gang they will find boys who are better who will eventually play the role.
