ABOUT THE SHOW
Bringing Charles Dickens’ beloved novel to life, Lionel Bart’s OLIVER takes audiences on a wild adventure through Victorian England. Join young, orphaned Oliver Twist as he navigates the London underworld of theft and violence – searching for a home, a family and most importantly, for love.
When Oliver is picked up on the street by a boy named the Artful Dodger, he is welcomed into a gang of child pickpockets led by the conniving, but charismatic, Fagin. When Oliver is falsely accused of a theft he didn’t commit, he is rescued by a kind and wealthy gentleman – to the dismay of Fagin’s violent sidekick, Bill Sykes. Caught in the middle is the warm-hearted Nancy, who is trapped under Bill’s thumb but desperate to help Oliver.
With spirited, timeless songs such as “As Long as He Needs Me”, “Food, Glorious Food”, “Consider Yourself” and “Where Is Love”, Oliver is an absolute Musical Theatre classic!
