Booking information

Event details

‘Consider yourself at home’ with the award-winning CTC (Childrens Theatre Company) as they return to The Apex this Christmas with Lionel Bart's classic musical OLIVER!, based on Charles Dickens' novel, Oliver Twist.

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.

A true theatrical masterpiece jam packed with toe-tapping numbers from start to finish, including 'Consider Yourself', 'Pick a Pocket or Two' and 'Oom-Pah-Pah!'.

This amateur production is presented by arrangement with Music Theatre International (Europe). All authorised performance materials are also supplied by MTI Europe.
