Bringing Victorian England to life, Lionel Bart’s Oliver! takes audiences on a wild adventure, as we follow young orphan Oliver Twist as he navigates London’s underworld of theft and violence, searching for a home, family and – most importantly – love. When Oliver is befriended by the Artful Dodger, he is welcomed into a gang of child pick-pockets, led by the conniving, but charismatic Fagin. Falsely accused of a theft he didn’t commit, Oliver is rescued by a kind and wealthy gentleman, who takes Oliver into his home. Fearful that Oliver will talk and give away their hideaway, Fagin, and his violent side-kick Bill Sykes, enlist the warm-hearted Nancy to lure Oliver away, with tragic consequences.
Full of spirited, timeless songs such as “As Long as He needs Me”, “Food, Glorious Food” and “Where is Love”, Oliver is a musical classic that perfectly showcases the talents of our large ensemble cast, as we bring these classic characters and score to life.
Join NODA Award winning Musical Theatre Stafford and MYTS (Musical Youth Theatre Stafford) as they join forces to bring this family classic to life once again.
