He wants some more! The poor young orphan is starving in the workhouse, apart from a brief and miserable time as an undertaker’s mute, until he is befriended by the Artful Dodger and lured into Fagin’s lair. There he is trained in the ways of the pickpocket and introduced to Nancy and Bill Sikes. The orphan finds refuge with the kindly Mr Brownlow but can’t evade the clutches of Fagin’s apprentices. Can Oliver escape this life - and who is he really? All the fun and danger of Dickens’ classic story plus the ever popular music and songs from Lionel Bart that have made this tale such a huge favourite.
“It’s a hard knock life” when you’re an orphan in downtown New York, especially as it’s 1933 and the middle of the Depression. Annie (Little Orphan Annie from the cartoon strip) is desperate to meet her parents – and to escape from drunken Miss Hannigan who runs the orphanage. She succeeds and gets taken under the wing of billionaire, Daddy Warbucks, changing his life. All the favourite songs are here – “You’re never fully dressed without a smile”, “Easy Street” and of course the all-time show stopper, “The Sun’ll come up Tomorrow”. This is the feel-good musical you won’t want to miss.
