    Lionel Bart'sΒ classic musical based on the Charles DickensΒ novel,Β Oliver TwistΒ 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.

    Eschewing the traditional aesthetic often associated with the musicalΒ Oliver!Β our Wesley College offering breathes an alternative setting and context into the life of Oliver, a malnourishedΒ 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.

    Come and along and see the Charles Dickens' classic like you've never seen before, performed by students ranging from Years 7 - 12.Β
