Following on from 2023's smash hit 'NATIVITY the Musical', 2020's 'SHREK the musical' and 2018's magical production of 'PETER PAN' - our adult and junior performers will share the stage again as we prepare to mount a FULL SCALE production of the newly updated musical masterpiece 'OLIVER'!



Consider yourself at home with Lionel Bart's classic musical based on the Charles Dickens novel, Oliver Twist. The Tony and Olivier Award-winning show is one of the few musicals to win an Academy Award for Best Picture and is widely hailed as a true theatrical masterpiece by actors and audience members alike.

The streets of Victorian England come to life as Oliver, a malnourished orphan in a workhouse, becomes the neglected apprentice of an undertaker. Oliver escapes to London and finds acceptance amongst a group of petty thieves and pickpockets led by the elderly Fagin. When Oliver is captured for a theft that he did not commit, the benevolent victim, Mr. Brownlow takes him in. Fearing the safety of his hideout, Fagin employs the sinister Bill Sikes and the sympathetic Nancy to kidnap him back, threatening Oliver’s chances of discovering the true love of a family.

Oliver! is a musical theatre masterpiece, perfectly showcasing the talents of a large ensemble cast as they bring these classic characters and score to life.



Congratulations to the cast of Oliver! We're eagerly looking forward to embarking on this musical journey with each one of you.


Our first rehearsal is scheduled for Tuesday, 20th February at Wigle Studios the Square (where auditions took place).


If you have a principal role, feel free to drop by our Square studio (where you auditioned) to pick up your Oliver Script anytime between 11 am and 8 pm from Monday to Thursday or 11am to 7pm on Fridays.
