Kirklees Youth Theatre Ensemble present Lionel Bart's Oliver!

Book, Music and Lyrics by Lionel Bart
Orchestral arrangements by William David Brohn

This amateur production is presented by arrangement with Music Theatre International (Europe)

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.
