Oliver! …the much loved story of the boy who asked for more in a grim Victorian workhouse; how he is sold; runs away to London; is befriended by the Artful Dodger; joins Fagan’s gang of theives and eventually restored to his family, is an enduring favourite with musical theatre audiences. One of the finest scores ever written for a musical, Lional Bart’s Oliver! contains such memorable songs as “Consider Yourself”, “As Long as he needs Me”, “Where is Love”, “Pick a Pocket or Two”. Birr Stage Guild is delighted to welcome musical director John Roe back to Birr, together with director Paul Norton, designer Olan Wrynn and chorographer Julianne McNamara, for this exciting new production of Oliver!, last staged by Birr Stage Guild nearly fourty years ago!
