Whats on Stage
Following a sell-out run in London’s West End, Cameron Mackintosh’s fabulous new production, one of the most beloved British musicals ever, Oliver! is here at Newcastle Theatre Royal!
Bringing vividly to life Dicken’s timeless characters with its ever-popular story of the boy who asked for more, Lionel Bart’s sensational score includes Food Glorious Food, Consider Yourself, You’ve Got to Pick-a-Pocket or Two, I’d Do Anything, Oom Pah Pah, As Long As He Needs Me and many more.
Oliver! recently completed a two year run at the Theatre Royal Drury Lane in London where it opened to rave reviews, sell-out business and the biggest advance sales of all time for a West End show.
Last year, Oliver! celebrated its 50th birthday, having premiered in the West End in 1960.
