Jigsaw Stage Productions will very soon be bringing Charles Dickens’ beloved novel to life with their April 2018 production of the Lionel Bart hit show ‘Oliver’!
This year the adult cast are delighted to be joined by a talented group of local children who will play the roles of Oliver, Artful Dodger and Fagin’s Gang.
With an amazing musical score of well-loved songs such as ‘Food Glorious Food’, ‘Consider Yourself’ and ‘As Long As He Needs Me’ the audience are guaranteed a brilliant entertaining evening and a wonderful musical treat for all the Family!!
The show takes audiences on a wild adventure through Victorian England. Join young, orphaned Oliver Twist as he navigates London’s underworld searching for a home, a family and most importantly – for love. When Oliver is picked up on the street by the Artful Dodger, he is welcomed into a gang of child pickpockets led by the conniving but charismatic, Fagin. When Oliver is falsely accused of a theft he didn’t commit, he is rescued by a kind and wealthy gentleman, to the dismay of Fagin’s sidekick, Bill Sykes. Caught in the middle is the warm-hearted Nancy, trapped under Bill’s thumb but desperate to help Oliver, with tragic results.
The show opens at the Beacon, Wantage on Wednesday 4th April and runs until Saturday 7th April. All evening performances start at 7.30pm with a 2.30pm matinee on Saturday 7th April.
Tickets are available from The Beacon; Brett’s Parmacy Grove; or online at www.wegottickets.com/jigsaw
