“Consider yourself at home” with this smash-hit musical based on Charles Dickens’ classic novel, Oliver Twist!
Packed with great songs - Food, Glorious Food, As Long As He Needs Me, I’d Do Anything, Consider Yourself, Where Is Love?, Gotta Pick a Pocket Or Two, Who Will Buy? and many more - Oliver! has been a family favourite on stage and screen for more than 50 years.
In Victorian England, poor mistreated orphan Oliver runs away from the workhouse to London, where he encounters a gallery of memorable characters like Fagin, Nancy, Bill Sikes and the Artful Dodger.
His exciting, scary and ultimately uplifting adventures are brought to the stage by a cast of talented local performers and a full orchestra – who promise to leave you asking for more!
