BOOK, MUSIC AND LYRICS
Based on the classic novel, Oliver Twist, the musical, Oliver!, is a story about holding onto hope in the darkest of times. The Tony Award winning show was one of the few musicals to win an Academy Award for Best Picture (1968) and is widely hailed as a true theatrical masterpiece by actors and audience members alike.
Oliver! tells the story of the young orphan, Oliver, and his struggles against the, often at times, cruel world within which he lives. Born in a workhouse and sold into apprenticeship with an undertaker, Oliver escapes and makes his way to London, where he finds himself accepted by a bunch of thieves and pickpockets, led by the elderly Fagin. However, not everyone is suited to a life of crime, and Oliver soon discovers leaving Fagin’s gang and starting anew won’t be so easy.
"This production will be dark, gritty, dramatic and thoroughly entertaining. It's a classic, reimagined," explains Director, David Harrison.
With over fifty performers dancing and singing amongst a stunning stage set, and supported by a full, live orchestra, Oliver! is a musical of hope for these days we live in.
Running time: 2 hours and 30 minutes, including one 20 minute interval.
