Here’s what people said about Grayson’s performance as The Artful Dodger:

“As the Artful Dodger who leads Oliver into the gang, Grayson J. Smith nails the character and proves an able young song and dance man.”

Talkin Broadway, David Edward Hughes


“… Artful Dodger (Grayson J. Smith) steals one scene after another.”

Seattle Weekly Arts, Kevin Phinney


“…“Consider Yourself” (led by young Grayson J. Smith’s delightfully raffish Artful Dodger)…”

The Seattle Times


“Oliver is at the heart of the play, but at the center of it’s spirit is the consummate performer Grayson J. Smith, the 12 year-old who plays the beloved character of the Artful Dodger.  Smith is the performer who puts it all together, not only is he a triple threat of singer/actor/dancer, but he exudes the youthful spirit of can-do-anything that is demanded by the role, and indeed, by the whole show.”

Drama in the Hood, Sarah Woolf
