A musical theatre favourite for the ages, Oliver! is Lionel Bart's classic adaptation of Charles Dickens' novel Oliver Twist.
A Tony and Olivier award-winning show, Oliver! is
also one of only a few to have also won an
Academy Award for Best Picture.
The streets of Victorian England come to life as Oliver, a malnourished orphan in a workhouse, becomes the neglected apprentice of an undertaker. Oliver escapes to London and finds acceptance amongst a group of petty thieves and pickpockets led by the elderly Fagin. When Oliver is captured for a theft that he did not commit, the benevolent victim, Mr. Brownlow takes him in. Fearing the safety of his hideout, Fagin employs the sinister Bill Sikes and the sympathetic Nancy to kidnap him back, threatening Oliver’s chances of discovering the true love of a family.*
Now, Oliver! is coming to The Q Theatre, Penrith,
presented by Penrith Musical Comedy Company.
