OLIVER! may be the most finely crafted tale ever to play the musical theatre stage. Pathos and drama are combined with outstanding musical numbers to create an enduring evening of entertainment. Lionel Bart created the adaptation from the Dicken's book as well as the music and lyrics. Characters like Fagin, Bumble, The Artful Dodger, Mrs Corney, Bill Sikes and the shows namesake Oliver are as familiar as the astonishing songbook of the show which features the like of "Food Glorious Food", "Where is Love", "You've Got to Pick a Pocket or Two", "As Long As He Needs Me" and more than a dozen others.
This is the 10th anniversary of the Festival Place Christmas time celebration for our community. True to your experiences of the last 10 years with shows like The King and I, My Fair Lady and last year's brilliant The Wizard of Oz, OLIVER! will feature a cast of 50, a pit orchestra of 22, an engaging new set, costumes and an evening that will remind you of how great theatre can be.
It's been 10 year's of sell-out performances. Plan your night at OLIVER! now.
