Award-winning Coventry Musical Theatre Society (CMTS) return to Belgrade Theatre, Coventry this May with their latest offering, Oliver!. Based on the classic novel by Charles Dickens, Oliver! is undoubtedly one of the best-loved musicals in theatre history.
When orphan Oliver Twist utters the immortal words “Please Sir I Want Some More”, little does he know his actions will take him on unimaginable adventures in the underworld of Victorian London, alongside the colourful characters of Fagin, Nancy, Bill Sykes and The Artful Dodger.
Director Steve Boden says:
"It's fun to work with so many young people. Their energy and enthusiasm is boundless and they
are making rehearsals great fun. Myself, the Musical Director James Suckling, Choreographer Sue
Biddle and Assistant Choreographer Louise Redmond are thoroughly enjoying the challenges
which mounting a show like this presents. The most enjoyable part is making sure the personality
of each child shines through while making scenes like the workhouse exactly as the audience
Lionel Bart’s sensational score includes the timeless songs, Food, Glorious Food, Consider Yourself, You’ve Got To Pick A Pocket Or Two, Who Will Buy?, Oom Pah Pah, As Long As He Needs Me, I’d Do Anything and many more tunes for the whole family to sing along to.
Six-times NODA award-winning Coventry Musical Theatre Society are proud to bring this legendary show to the Belgrade Theatre. Following their highly successful productions of Crazy for You and Oklahoma recently, they are again set to delight audiences, this time with the fun, family favourite, Oliver!
