Are you ready for a trip back in time with OLIVER and his orphans?
Consider yourself at home with Lionel Bart’s classic musical based on Charles Dickens’ novel, Oliver Twist! RARE Productions are excited to announce that the next show bringing the busy Victorian England streets to the Cresset stage is, the Tony and Olivier Award-winning show, Oliver!
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.
Show week is taking place from 15th to the 17th March 2018 at The Cresset in Peterborough.
