Show synopsis

With music, lyrics and book by Tony award winning composer Lionel Bart, this is a captivating tale of cruelty and hope, exposing the depravity, malice and villainy of 19th Century London, and the search for someone or something to overcome it.

Armed with only his name and a determination to seek out his past, the show follows Oliver escaping the horrors of an infamous workhouse and finding refugee in London under the beady eye of the eccentric, but manipulative Fagin and his gang of thieving pick pockets.

Plunged into a villainous world of which he has very little experience, Oliver is exposed to the inhabitants of the underbelly of London, where his desire to find happiness and identity sparks a chain of events that leads a number of the characters to question whether they are really beyond redemption and if, behind the false smiles and drunken illusions, all are really searching to love and be loved.

The show is a musical with some of the most recognizable songs in Musical Theatre, such as “As Long as He Needs Me”, “You’ve Got to Pick a Pocket or Two” and “Reviewing the Situation”, which guide us through the twists and turns of this classic story.
