Young Oliver Twist lives in a workhouse with other orphaned boys. When he disrupts a meal by asking for more, he is sold to a local undertaker and his family. They treat Oliver horribly, making him sleep under the coffins.

Oliver escapes and runs off to London, where he quickly befriends another young boy, the Artful Dodger. Dodger takes him to his home, an academy for orphans who learn how to be pick-pockets, run by a kind, yet slightly sinister, old gentleman named Fagin. Oliver is also introduced to the loveable Nancy SYkes and Bet, Nancy's best friend.

When Oliver goes on his first pick-pocketing job, he is caught by the police. The man he robbed, Mr. Brownlow, learns of Oliver's sad past and brings him into his own home. Meanwhile, Nancy's husband, the villainous Bill Sykes, worries that Oliver will inform Mr. Brownlow and the police of the thieves location. He forces Nancy and Bet to snatch Oliver from Mr. Brownlow's house and take him back to Fagin's.

Nancy does everything her husband tells her to, but plans on secretly taking Oliver back to Mr. Brownlow. Will Nancy succeed? Will the violent Bill Sykes be caught? What will happen to Oliver?

Enjoy Lionel Bart's hugely popular score, which includes Food Glorious Food, Where is Love?, Who will Buy? Pick a pocket, Consider Yourself and many more favourites.

A classic musical for all the family….
