Consider yourself at home with Lionel Bart's musical based on Charles Dickens' novel, Oliver Twist. Widely hailed as a true theatrical masterpiece by actors and audience members alike, this tale will go down in history as one of the greats.

The streets of Victorian England come to life as Oliver, a malnourished orphan in a workhouse, becomes the neglected apprentice of an undertaker. He 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. Will Oliver get a happy ending?

Rare Productions is the UK's largest youth musical theatre company.
