The show is based on the famous Dickens novel Oliver Twist. Its timeless characters
and ever popular story are set in the streets of Victorian London. The story starts in a
workhouse where we first meet the orphaned Oliver Twist when he utters the
immortal words “Please Sir, I want some more” at supper time to a larger than life Mr.
Due to this impertinence, Oliver is sold to an undertaker but he runs away and is
eventually found in London by the Artful Dodger who takes him to the roguish Fagin.
He is accepted into Fagin’s gang and is taught to become a pickpocket.
Oliver! has some huge dance routines and lavish show tunes. The sensational score
written by Lionel Bart includes Food Glorious Food, Consider Yourself, You’ve Got to
Pick-a-Pocket or Two, Oom Pah Pah and As Long As He Needs Me.
