Ageless, timeless and matchless ... Lionel Bart's musical masterpiece. Bringing Charles Dickens' beloved novel to life, Lionel Bart's "Oliver!" takes audiences on a wild adventure through Victorian England.
Young, orphaned Oliver Twist, 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.
With spirited, timeless songs like "As Long as He Needs Me", "Food, Glorious Food", "Consider Yourself" and "Where is Love", "Oliver!" is widely loved as a musical with heart and spirit.
