Oliver Twist by Charles Dickens

Please Sir, can we have some more in Leamore?

Oliver Twist by Charles DickensTalented performers from Walsall Youth Theatre are certain to leave audiences wanting more when they stage Lionel Bart’s Oliver! next week.

They will be staging one of the best-loved British musicals at Leamore’s Forest Arts Centre on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday 26, 27 and 28 October in a half term treat to be enjoyed by all the family.

Oliver! focuses on an orphan’s journey through Victorian London and the collection of wonderful characters he meets along the way including The Artful Dodger, Nancy and villainous Fagin.

Julie Simmonds, Walsall Council programming and operations officer, said: “This stage show has enjoyed more than 40 years of theatrical success and no wonder with fabulous tunes including Consider Yourself and You’ve Got To Pick A Pocket or Two.

“We’re delighted to offer this popular family show during the half term break and promise all the magic of the West End right here in Walsall, courtesy of the excellent young actors we have taking part.”

Tickets cost £7.50 and the show is running on Wednesday 26 October at 7.15pm, and at 2pm and 7.15pm on Thursday and Friday 27 and 28 October.

Tickets are available from Forest Arts Centre on 654555 and the box office on 0845 111 2900.
