About Oliver!

One of the most popular and enduring musicals of our time, ‘Oliver!’ tells the story of a child who is taken from the workhouse, recruited to work as an undertaker’s ‘mute’, then as a pickpocket for a gang of thieves, and constantly in grave danger of harm!
Yet, out of Dickens’ bleak tale of child labour and London slum squalor, Lionel Bart has woven an optimistic and uplifting musical delight, with songs such as ‘Food, Glorious Food’, ‘Consider Yourself’ and ‘Who Will Buy?’ among a score full of hits.

But, is Fagin a kindly old gent or a self serving monster? Should we ‘love’ the Artful Dodger or fear he is well on the way to becoming the next Bill Sykes?
