Hi i posted earlier the result as a guest because i was posting off of my iphone adn couldnt sign in or insert spoilers. Sorry.

I was picking up tickets for avenue q at the noel coward theatre when i saw my favourite oliver
Spoiler
crying in the foyer. I kinda realised that this must mean they are being told who has got the part as
Spoiler
was there crying too. I thought id hang around and see who got the role. Then
Spoiler
came out crying and then
Spoiler
. Next out was
Spoiler
and then the three winning boys smiling and shocked,
Spoiler
. This is true and looking around the foyer i was the only member of the public there so digitalspy are either lying that they didnt get it from whatsonstage or have a telephone contact with an oliver or production crew on id do anything. Anyways apologies for not putting spoilers in earlier.  

Jake.

    Thanks, Jake, for the detailed info.  Just to be fair to the folks over on DS, it's possible they picked up the info from a forum other than WOS that has an inside contact or otherwise....    I'm really surprised
Spoiler
didn't get through.  I think
Spoiler
and I am dubious that particular problem can be solved.     Gosh I hope those spoiler tags worked as I'm on a PDA - pleading with the mods to fix (I'm on top of a mountain but can't live without my WOS...)

Thanks for the info Jake. I am pleased with the choice. However I am gutted to know the others were so upset and in public. What were they all doing at the Noel Coward Theatre? Meeting the Avenue Q puppets?! or meeting Daniel as an example of someone who didn't win but has still done well? (Clearly this was no consolation.) Surely not watching the show - it's hardly suitable. And having them all sob in a public foyer. It's not good planning. Were their parents there?

Avenue Q not suitable for 12 year olds who intend to make a career in theatre? Is that for real?

I would be wary of taking a 10 year old to see Avenue Q - the content is adult and the fact that it is delivered by puppets does not take away from that

I'm sure the viewing public and parents of the Oliver candidates are not expecting the BBC or CM to expose the boys to 'The internet is for PORN' etc.  Some of them are only 11!
Not dissing Avenue Q - I love it and hope it runs long enough for me to be able to take my kids (when they're old enough).

Avenue Q isn't really suitable for any 12 year old, regardless of what their future career plan may be.

I'm still not sure whether I believe the spoilers. There are a couple of things that are questionable about the detail.

The three winners listed in post #53 are indeed correct.
