Oliver Jr.

One of the most loved musical sensations based on the classic story Oliver Twist by Charles Dickens. Winner of six Academy Awards it is now one of the most popular school musicals.

Music written by Lionel Bert, the musical features the popular songs ‘Consider Yourself’ and ‘Food Glorious Food’ resulting in Bert winning the Tony Award for Best Original Score.

The story is of a nine year old boy named Oliver who runs away from his orphanage and is then taken in by a family of street urchins led by the Artful Dodger and crafty pick-pocket, Fagin. A kind Mr Brownlow offers to shelter Oliver but there’s a twist when Fagin and a mysterious man, Monks, plan to recapture him. What will happen to Oliver?
