Details

Richard Cheshire returns to Aberystwyth Arts Centre to direct this year’s Summer Season Oliver!, with a fully professional cast! The award-winning musical adaptation of the classic Dickens' novel springs to life with some of the most memorable characters and songs ever to hit the stage.

Consider yourself at home with Lionel Bart's classic musical based on Charles Dickens' novel, Oliver Twist. The Tony and Olivier Award-winning show is one of the few musicals to win an Academy Award for Best Picture and is widely hailed as a true theatrical masterpiece by actors and audience members alike.

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.

Oliver! is a musical theatre masterpiece, perfectly showcasing the talents of a large ensemble cast as they bring these classic characters and score to life.

Oliver! was last performed at Aberystwyth Arts Centre in 2005, when local star Taron Egerton starred as the Artful Dodger alongside a host of other talented young performers. Although Taron will not be returning, we are thrilled to welcome back many of the original cast members from 2005 who are now professional actors – and we’re sure more stars of the future will be amongst our new cast of young people!
