'Lionel Bart's' Oliver!

“Please sir, I want some more.” Oliver’s innocent request lands him in trouble with the workhouse Matron and the Beadle and sets him on his famous adventure. He is sold to a local undertaker, but runs away and is picked up by the Artful Dodger who invites Oliver to Consider Yourself one of us! Fagin’s Gang set out to Pick A Pocket or Two and take Oliver along, but he is arrested and taken before the Magistrate.

When he finds Oliver was an innocent bystander, Mr Brownlow, the victim of the gang, takes Oliver in. Fagin’s burglar, Bill Sykes is afraid Oliver will give away their set-up and sends his girlfriend, Nancy to get Oliver back. Eventually Oliver is restored to Mr Brownlow, who by a million to one chance happens to be his Grandfather. Fagin sets out to rebuild his gang with the Dodger. Food Glorious Food, Where is Love, Be Back Soon, I’d Do Anything, Oom-Pah-Pah are just some of the popular songs from Lionel Bart’s lively musical based on Charles Dicken’s Oliver Twist.

Queensland Musical Theatre’s production of OLIVER! directed by Deian Ping, with Musical Direction by Andrew Firth and Choreography by Julianne Burke, plays at the Schonell Theatre, UQ from 6 to 11 June with evening shows commencing at 7.30 p.m. from Wednesday to Saturday and matinees commencing at 1:30 p.m. on Saturday, 9 June, and Sunday, 10 June.
