Looks like an error to me

Proof-reading doesn't matter to some people it would seem!

Seeing as 'coveted' was also spelt wrong, I'm pretty sure this isn't right.

Sam wouldn't take the role of Bet either.

They didtn't even spell Fagin correctly. (Or "theatre's", for that matter.)

Pretty sure Guest Elin was talking about the missing apostrophe, i.e. it should be "theatre's most co[n]ve[r]ted role"

I'm assuming the online ticket sellers had copy ready to sent out and someone sent the wrong one.  I did get a laugh out of "converted" though...

Maybe that's why they want a gritty tough Nancy. She's not a whore-with-a-heart-of-gold anymore. XD

Although lord knows what she's been converted into... o_O

Precisely.
