Preston Musical Comedy Society are bringing Charles Dickens’ beloved novel “Oliver Twist” to life, in Lionel Bart’s Oliver!

This family musical takes audiences on a wild adventure through Victorian England. Travel with young, orphaned Oliver Twist as he navigates  London’s underworld of theft and violence, searching for a home, a family, and – most importantly – for love.

When Oliver is picked up on the streets by a boy named 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 violent sidekick, Bill Sykes.

Caught in the middle is the warm-hearted Nancy, who is trapped under Bill’s thumb, but desperate to help Oliver, with tragic results. With spirited, timeless songs like “As Long as He Needs Me,” “Food, Glorious Food,” “Consider Yourself” and “Where is Love,” Oliver! is a musical classic with a heart.  Don’t review the situation…..just book now!
