    Saint Prep Theatre joins forces with the Saint John’s Boys’ Choir to create a spectacular production of the Broadway musical hit OLIVER! ‘Food glorious Food’, ‘Where is Love’ and ‘I’d Do Anything’ are just some of the wonderful songs from Lionel Bart’s lively, Tony Award winning musical based on Charles Dickens’ Oliver Twist.

    “Please sir, I want some more?” Oliver’s innocent request lands him in trouble with the workhouse Matron and the Beadle and sets him on his famous adventure. He is sold to a local undertaker, but runs away and is picked up by the Artful Dodger who invites Oliver to ‘Consider Yourself’ one of us! Fagin’s gang sets out to ‘Pick a Pocket or two’ and take Oliver along, but he is arrested and taken before the magistrates. When he finds Oliver was an innocent bystander, Mr. Brownlow, the victim of the gang, takes Oliver in. One of Fagin’s thieves, Bill Sykes is afraid Oliver will give away their set-up and sends his girlfriend, Nancy to get Oliver back. Eventually Oliver is restored to Mr. Brownlow, who by a million to one chance happens to be his Grandfather.
