Following our recent successful production of SOUTH PACIFIC in November, we are delighted
to announce that our Spring 2014 production will be Lionel Bart’s ever-popular musical
OLIVER! opened at the New Theatre in 1960 and ran for over 2,600 performances. Appearing
in the original run were RonMoody, Georgia Brown, Tony Robinson and Barry Humphreys
(aka Dame Edna Everage).
The show contains a wealth of music and many of the songs have become very popular,
including, “ Where Is Love?”, “Consider Yourself”, “As Long As He Needs Me”, “Reviewing
The Situation” and “Food, Glorious Food”. It was said at the time that the audience
whistled the tunes as they CAME INTO the theatre!
Loosely based on Dickens’ “Oliver Twist”, OLIVER! is a show that will appeal to all
